Family Meal Plan (2-21-11)

Here's to another week of living on a $150 grocery budget and becoming debt free. We are "living like no one else, so later we can LIVE LIKE NO ONE ELSE" (Dave Ramsey).

Last week was a little slower and a little less stressful in my life. I hope all of you had an easy week too! The $150 did not stretch so much at the store this weekend, so I will reach back in the freezer once again, good thing I have a good stock pile going. I went just to Costco and the Farmer's Market and the money was GONE. Yep, that quick and all I got was the MUCH needed items. Butter, Water, Eggs, Fruits & Veggies and a few essentials.

But, as you can see from my menu below, we are not eating poor. We have some GREAT meals lined up this week and a few of everyone's favorites. G'ma's Simple Spaghetti (we always have hamburger meat and noodles on hand); Poor Man's Garlic Bread (buns from the freezer); Loyd's BBQ Ribs (bought on sale and stored in the freezer for a raining day, like today); and yep, a HOMEMADE Turkey coming this weekend (I got this for $5 bucks, around the holiday's and now it's a perfect time to cook it up). We will be sure to have a Turkey sandwiches next week and a few other meals like a Homemade Turkey Pot Pie; absolutely scrumptious.

Here is our Family Meal Planning for this week. I'd love to hear if you have any short cuts, tricks or tips.
