Tentative Meal Plan: January 6th-12th

This week’s meal plan is going to be slightly different than most. You might be wondering why and I will tell you just that. I have named this post Tentative Meal Plan because that’s all that life is. Everything is tentative. Everything changes. Not everything is going to go perfectly according to the plan. And so we are planning ahead, knowing that there might be some changes along the way.

Meal Planning

We know there might be changes mainly because we are in Halifax for two days, and traveling always makes meal planning more challenging. Fortunately, by creating a plan ahead of time, we can better prepare ourselves for the unexpected. We will be packing a lunch on the way home from Halifax, just in case we end up leaving later than planned. We will also pack snacks because let’s face it, everyone is tempted to buy snacks when they stop for a bathroom break or for gas.

So here’s this week’s tentative meal plan.

My mom is covering the groceries for the Halifax meals, so that means we only need to buy 5 things when we get back home. Given that we’re currently redoing our No Spending Month challenge, this is fantastic for our limited budget.
