Fall is supposedly in the air, even if in South Carolina it still feels like summer. And so I’m planning this month in my monthly meal plan to do lots of soups and heartier meals as I hope the weather is going to start to get colder! I’ve got several of my favorite soups on […]

      So far this year I’ve been doing some week-long budget meal plans. The first was a $65/week budget meal plan, then a $70/week keto meal plan, and even a meal plan for your week at the beach (or in the mountains). After I did the keto meal plan, I had a request to do […]

      It’s the end of the month, which means it’s time to share my monthly meal plan. Even though the thought of planning a whole month out might seem overwhelming, I like having a framework for the whole month. That doesn’t mean we don’t flex when we need to or switch meals for certain nights, or […]

        It’s football season, and that means lots of good food! And while tailgating food can be delicious and fun, it also has the possibility to be stressful and expensive. Make it easier on yourself by going with recipes that don’t require a ton of extra work and that use frugal, basic ingredients (For example, stadiums […]

          Summer is drawing to a close, which means the rhythms of your family life are probably changing! For me, that does mean changes in some areas, but I also still definitely stick with meal planning. So many things start up in August—sports practices, other activities, school—so having a plan is key in order to stay on […]

            To me it feels like the months are flying by this year, and I can hardly believe I’m already thinking about what we’ll eat in July. Summer is in full swing, and I love to plan out a month ahead of time so that in the middle of busy summer activities, what we’re going to […]

              You’ve already paid for your vacation rental, you’ve calculated your gas costs, and you’ve checked the packing list twice to make sure you don’t have to buy toothbrushes at the beachfront grocery store. But the one thing you can’t completely plan for is the food—not only do food prices vary greatly between tourist locations and […]

                Meal plans are always helpful, but they feel even more necessary to me in the summer. Even though the pace of our life slows down in terms of appointments and extracurricular activities, it’s nice to know what the plan is when we leave the house for a day of swimming or time with friends. June […]

                    This weekend is Cinco De Mayo, which is a great excuse to mix up your menu plan. I find that Mexican food in general makes everybody in my family happy, because many of the meals allow everyone to add what they like, whether it’s extra sour cream or several more squirts of hot sauce.
