Help Planning Dinner

About 8 weeks ago we started doing a menu for 2 weeks out at a time. I love to cook and try new recipes but I hate trying to figure out what to have for dinner each night. I hate realizing I don’t have time to make something I had in mind or lacking supplies for the dish that we wanted to cook. One of my friends has done a menu very often and upon hearing her talk about doing one before shopping I decided to give it a go again. I have tried this before but half heartedly and so of course it failed. First off I am a couponer so the thought of a menu to begin with scared me. What if I couldn’t make it work with coupons? Well I now coupon and plan around if possible what is on sale. It isn’t always every meal that I get lucky enough to get everything on sale or free but I have noticed that I sometimes have leftover ingredients to add to the next 2 weeks menu. For instance I price match the produce ads from the Aldis  insert at walmart. This week I got 5lbs of red potatoes for 99 cents and a very large bag of baby carrots for 49 cents. You of course could just go to Aldis but it is a drive for me. So these things may very well last into my next 2 week planning session. If you are afraid of some things going bad you can always freeze it. Just look up how it needs to be done properly. So anyway I have worked on a menu to share with you guys which will hopefully lighten your work load.  It starts on Wednesdays for us but you can mark through and change those if you wish.  I hope you enjoy! I may start sharing our menus if anyone is interested in those.

CHEAP Gifts!!

I passed over these little cuties on Amazon and had to share them. They start for under an dollar and include free shipping! It says they ship from over seas so it takes about 2 weeks to get them but they are adorable!
