See my $60 grocery budget meal plan for this week.
$60 Grocery Budget Meal Plan
I recently started posting my grocery shopping trips and meal plans for the week again.
My main goal is to:
- Encourage you to make some kind of plan to reduce your stress and your budget.
- Give you permission to serve super simple meals.
- Stir up some ideas.
I’m sharing what we’re actually eating this week which includes a combination of both pantry items and fresh foods, so hopefully you’ll find something you can add to your meal plan.
By the way our current weekly budget is $60 to feed three adults. (My oldest three children have moved out on their own.)
THE SECRET TO THE $60 GROCERY BUDGET
The main way I stick to the budget is by purchasing lower priced and sale items in multiples so I have a constant stockpile to work from. Each week I’m purchasing some items for the current week, and some items for upcoming weeks.
THIS WEEK’S $60 GROCERY BUDGET SHOPPING TRIP
Here’s the receipt.
And here’s what I purchased.
I’m primarily using what we have on hand in the freezer, fridge and pantry this week, so I didn’t need to purchase much.
I’ll put one pepperoni package in the freezer for later.
Weekly Total: $33.65
August Monthly Total: $ 167.10
