We made it through January (well, almost) and now it’s time for the February menu plan to be ready. I started working on this a couple weeks ago but with all 6 of us sick and the baby soon arrival, it just didn’t happen as quick as January’s planning did. We’ve been wanting to get back to Weight Watchers meals as soon as this baby was born so all of February’s meals are from my Weight Watchers’ cookbook (with the except of the Friday night pizza).
Why am I planning a full month of meals? We are a growing family but I am trying to stick to a bare minimum grocery budget of $300 a month for us while still trying to eat healthy and not live on beans and rice. That means I have to take some time to plan. I’m sticking to 14 meals or less a month and just repeating them. It’s not only easier to have fewer meals to plan, but also cheaper. We can buy in bulk and get a better price than buying a ton of different ingredients for 30 meals.
I typically shop at WinCo, Cash & Carry and Schwans for our food.
