I usually make my own Meal plan for the week as it keeps me in check and makes sure that I don’t go over budget when doing my shopping. I have decided to write down my meal plans for the week, mainly to keep me on plan (I do Slimming World) and to share with you a typical weeks menu is in our household.
There can be anything between 2 and 7 people in my house for meals during a typical week, depending how many of our children decide to eat at home.
I plan most meals to cover several people and if I happen to have leftovers, then they can be tubbed up and either eaten the following lunchtime or frozen for future use. I also plan them from Saturday to the following Friday as I usually do my food shopping on a Saturday or Sunday.
The Meal plan will cover everything that I cook and eat, but the kids may make something different for breakfast or if they have something on. Having children between the ages of 8 and 19 in the house can sometimes be chaos!
I always shop with a budget though, and you get get my FREE meal planner below to keep you on track. All of these meals are as inexpensive as possible or I wouldn’t plan them.
