Weekly Meal Plan: August 5th-11th

Another crazy week has come and gone, and now it’s time for our weekly meal plan again. If you’re new here, you can take a peek at our first meal plan post to learn all about it.

Mostly, we like to plan our meals so that we can save money and live frugally. We pick 7 recipes to make each week, listing all their ingredients and highlighting what we don’t have on hand.

This week’s grocery was particularly larger usual because we are finally getting everything in order in the new place and restocking the kitchen! Our regular weekly budget is around $100 ($50 each, give or take). This week’s grocery cost was approximately $200, but we’re hoping that all the food we purchased in bulk will hold us over for a while. And in the long run, buying groceries in bulk will make it so that we are spending less than our allotted weekly budget.

What are you planning to make this week? Let us know in the comments, we love to get new recipe ideas!
