Menu Plan Monday

We don't have a specific budget for groceries at our house. We recognize that there are weeks where we stock up and weeks where we eat from our stockpile and only pick up a couple of items. This week was a stock up week for us, plus we needed cat food. Excluding cat food and non-grocery items, we spent about $80.

At our house, we don't eat breakfast or lunch together during the week, so there is minimal planning that goes into those meals. For us, the focus is dinner.

Sunday
Cereal
Arby's (free Roastburgers)
Cheesy Saucy Noodles

Monday
leftovers

Tuesday
Chicken Gravy over Biscuits

Wednesday
Pork Chops

Thursday
Chili

Friday
Fish Fillets

Saturday
Cereal
Sandwiches
Chipotle (free Burritos)

Weekdays breakfast is at daycare for my daughter, the rest of us eat cold cereal, frozen waffles, oatmeal, toast or whatever strikes our fancy. Lunch we pack, usually leftovers for me. My son either packs or buys lunch at school. If he packs, it is generally a lunch meat sandwich or a PB&J with some sides.

We don't really have a grocery budget but I try to keep it around $700 a month.
I'm trying, this month, to not go into the grocery store more then once every 2 wks. Hopefully, that will cutdown on the extra spending.
Lots of good eats at your house. Enjoy.
