September’s Budget Menu Plan – 30 Days of Delicious Dinners for $229 with Free Printable Recipes and Grocery Lists

The last week of August was one of the busiest months of my life.  In the past week and a half, Anthony started kindergarten, DJ and I purchased his chiropractic office, and I ran my first ever 5K.  Needless to say, everything has been backed up – including this months menu.

September’s menu is fun, and is getting us geared up for fall!  There are a few casseroles, and some recipes to warm you from the inside out!

With the crazy month ahead, and the crazy past couple of weeks, I just wanted to jump right into Septembers menu and share with with you.  This months menu come sup to a grand total of $229.61!  Like in previous months, I shopped the sales for the best deals on my groceries, and bought whatever I could in bulk.  Costco has become one of my best friends, and favorite places to shop.
