I don’t know about you, but I am so ready for my life to get back to normal! Don’t get me wrong, I love the Holiday Season! But, I simply can not take any more of it. LOL!
I used to meal plan every week, like clockwork. However, over the past few years, I have fallen off the wagon and my pocketbook shows it! It is really amazing how much money you save when you plan your menus. You can get items on sale, but you also stop getting quick items at your local convenience store or fast food place.
I have set myself a goal to post a new printable menu plan and shopping list every single week for this entire year. Don’t want to wait? You can get all of January’s (or weeks 1-5) in my shop right now!
The complete menu plan for the first week of the year is below. You can find links to recipes and more. Scroll to the bottom to print out the menu plan and the shopping list.
