We love good old spaghetti in our house so any mix and match of noodles and sauce works for us and shopping at Walmart means its pretty inexpensive. Just throw in a veggie and a fruit and we have a simple inexpensive meal!
This is a “meal” that I invinted while I was on Weight Watchers. It’s very low in points (calories) and it’s quite tasty. Add 1 can of french style green beans to 1 Tablespoon olive oil and warm. Add a can of tomato sauce. Season with a little garlic/onion powder/black pepper. Serve. Top with grated munster cheese. It’s quick, tasty and inexpensive.
Thanks Vivian. 🙂
Kimberlee- Did you find shrimp on sale? I looked at your recipe b/c we like something that I (used to) make called shrimp & noodles. Your recipe calls for 3 pounds of shrimp. The cheapest shrimp in my area of FL is sold by the roadside at 3lb/$12. I haven’t stopped to investigate yet b/c I’m afraid I would have to pull the heads off and I am NOT going to do that. In the grocery store, it is cost prohibitive. What’s your secret to affording shrimp? Thanks.
Oh my goodness–I am so glad you caught that Mandy! It should be 1 1/2 -2 lbs of shrimp. Yes, I did get 12 ounce bags of cooked shrimp with tails on for $5 each at Walmart. It is still a bit of a splurge for us, but $5 is about as cheap as I can find it in our area.
I’m glad the shrimp at Wal-Mart is still $5 a bag. You got such amazing produce deals that the shrimp became less of a splurge. It looks yummy!
I was super excited about those produce prices. 🙂
This is actually our dinner menu plan for this week and I am planning next week’s right now. Do you have a cost break down of each dinner meal?
I do not do a price breakdown of each meal, but I try to have some cheaper meals each week that kind of balance everything out. Thanks for sharing your menu. 🙂

Thanks for sharing, Kimberlee…here is our meal plan.
Thanks for sharing your menu Crystal!
I can’t believe how much money meal planning has saved me! I am kind of nervous because I go back to work in a week (teacher) and I hope I keep this up. It’s amazing that I am actually able to plan less meals to buy at the store because I have leftovers, both in my pantry and in my fridge that I can usually make another meal out of! Thanks for sharing!
It is so true. Meal planning is really the primary way to save on groceries (and make sure the kids get fed 🙂 ).
