What’s for supper this week?
How about 5 supper meals for a family of 4 for under around $25? That is my goal when creating these meals plans each week. The goal is to inspire you to find frugal and filling options for your family. You may spend a little more or a little less, but these are guidelines and inspiration for a frugal family meal plan.
Here is this week’s $25 weekly meal plan. We are sharing ideas for meals that cost $5 in these meal plans.
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!

It’s not that I don’t love pampering my mom, and appreciate everything she does for myself and my family, I just find it hard to buy for her.
Well, Winter is here with a bang! The Canadian East coast is being walloped by a Nor’Easter today (Feb, 2017 – 50-80 cm of snow!!). Over the past few weeks I have had this list started and feel that perhaps today is the day to get it posted. Winter can cause us all to … Read more
In our busy lives we need to take advantage of time together and stop replacing quality time with giving each other “stuff”. Yes, jewellery, flowers and chocolates are all beautiful and appreciated, but planning something to do together is more meaningful and can be more unique.
