A Thrifty Meal Plan

This week I am trying to spend as little as I can on groceries.

I already have the following on hand:
  • turkey bacon
  • potatoes
  • beans
  • frozen vegetables
  • items for pizza: sauce, cheese, pepperoni
  • frozen chicken breast
  • brown rice

Here’s my menu:

Baked Potato Soup
Chicken Pot Pie (using half of the chicken from making the broth for the chicken soup)
Black Bean Burritos

Some tips for planning less expensive weeks:
  • Use items you have in your freezer and pantry
  • Make soups
  • Make meals that have a little or no meat in them
  • Plan to use items like potatoes, pasta, beans, and rice

  1. Great meal plan. It is one of those weeks for us, too.
