Budget Meal Planning - October 17, 2016

Fall weather is here!

Time to get my slowcooker going to make evenings easier for my family. With different activities scheduled in the evening after work things still feel a bit rushed. It can be hard to balance our family schedule with home cooked meals  but it is not something I am willing to not do. 

Planning our meals help me stay on budget and allows us to eat better on a daily basis. I have a fair bit of money I have not spent yet this month because we are planning a trip to costco this week so we need that money to stock up.

BUDGET $50 + $61.10 (leftover from previous weeks) = $111.10
Iceberg Lettuce - 0.99
Peppers - 2.00
Oatmeal - 2.00 x 2
Bread - 2.49
Milk - 4.27
Cheese Slices - 2.99
Cream Cheese - 2.99 
Cereal - 2.00
Chips - 5.00
Bananas - 2.72
Total $29.45
