The meal plan this week is VERY budget friendly. We had to utilize part of our grocery budget to another expense this month, so I'm getting creative and working with what I already have on hand in the pantry, fridge and freezer. I did run to the store to buy milk and a few produce items, otherwise we had everything else. This is why I think it is so important to keep a well stocked kitchen. You just never know when you may have a tight month. I can still feed my family healthy meals even when I have less money to spend in any particular month.
