Here is this week's $25 weekly meal plan. We are sharing ideas for meals that cost approximately $5 each, in these meal plans. Some week's I get them under $25, like this one foe $22.80, and some weeks are a few dollars over. It is a great guideline and idea starter for your meal planning efforts!
This Week's Menu includes Roast Chicken Dinner, Spaghetti & Meatballs, Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin & Broccoli Salad, Chicken Soup & Biscuits and Chicken Fajitas !
The whole idea in sharing these plans is to inspire you to find lower cost options and plan ahead to save time and money. If you have specific dietary needs, you can alter some recipes or create your own plans. This is for inspiration, to prove it is possible to feed a family of 4 for supper meals on $25/week...you can customize as you wish. You can do it!
This $25 meal plan offers suggestions for anyone trying to really cut costs, while keeping meals as "real food" or "from scratch" and unprocessed as possible. These are not my personal weekly meal plans, I will share some of those from time to time in a seperate post.
Another great resource of meal planning and ideas is found on our Facebook Page under Videos. Check out the "Sunday Night Live" series. I share recipes and kitchen tips each week Live. If you follow the page, you will see a notification pop up when we are live!

Please comment, offer suggestions, ask questions and share recipes. This feature is to help people see it IS possible to eat well on a tight budget.
This weekly feature will have at least one meal plan for 4 to 5 supper meals that will feed a family of 4. Some weeks I will show 2 meal plans, but I may not be able to do that every week based on flyer sales.
Most of the items purchased will be flyer or in store sales, and I will try to incorporate coupons, cash back and points offers when I can.
