Real Food on Budget
Week of February 19, 2018.

Monday, February 19, 2018 AnnMarie Brown 0 Comments

This week I am menu planning for 4 (3 adults and 1 teen), I have to take into account a few different dietary restrictions but I am sure I can get it done on my budget. I plan on making some bread and buns for this week. That should help a lot with lunches for my husband and the girls for the week. 

I am planning a trip to Costco on Tuesday of this week if my car repairs are not to much and I will add that trip to my totals once I get home. I know I have to pick up a few things from Costco that are just cheaper than any where else.  
$75 for a family a week
