Menu Plan Monday Week of September 8th

I am so excited that my plan for eating from our pantry and freezer worked. I only spent $42 last week on groceries. We still have some leftovers that will help stretch this week, but I do plan on making a big trip to the store. We have soccer every night this week so my menu is easy and quick.


Breakfast – Pancakes

Lunch- Sandwiches, Fruit

Dinner- Hamburgers, BBQ spare ribs


Breakfast – Oatmeal/ Cereal

Lunch- Sandwiches, Fruit

Dinner- Lasagna, Salad, French Bread


Breakfast – Waffles

Lunch – Smoothies, crackers, cheese, peanut butter

Dinner – Tacos (leftover meat and shells)


Breakfast –French Toast

Lunch – Sandwiches, Fruit

Dinner – Fish sticks, fries, and veggies (this is not typical for us, but we have soccer and bible study this night)


Breakfast- Bagels

Lunch- Sandwiches, Fruit

Dinner- Pizza

My plan is to make our sandwiches a little more interesting this week by making egg salad, chicken salad, lunch meat and grilled cheese to add to our usually pb and honey.

  1. Great job sticking to last week’s plan and keeping your grocery spending low!

  2. Great job! I wish I had that much in my freezer. I could make do with some things in the pantry but we wouldn’t have enough meat.

  3. You are an inspiration!! Now that thekids are inschool I am going to start to menu plan.

  4. Yum, sounds like a great plan for this week 🙂

  5. Your menus always inspire me to plan. I never planned breakfast and lunch before, but I’m starting to think that way.
    Lasagna is quick and easy? Let me know your secret!

  6. Mmmm! Peanut Butter and Honey sounds good! Over the summer I tried to experiment with the sandwhiches also. We made some intresting pancake sandwhiches that went over really well with the kids. We also made a peanut butter, bananna sandwhich with chocolate syrup. (I was the chocolate syrup controller). I think even one day we made some kind of sandwhiches with the leftover french toast.

  7. I found your blog through a post on Family Corner (Great Site) in the what did you do frugal today thread and I am so very happy that I just had to say glad to *meet* you, I can’t wait to read more.
    I have 4 girls and no longer homeschool (illness forced me to stop) but I love what I’ve seen so far. Hope you don’t mind, but I am adding you to my blog list so I can find you again- when I have extra time I look through them. 🙂

  8. Yay for pantry shopping! That’s how our week went too, I spent all of $15 and shopped in the freezer and dry storage for the rest. I do need to plan breakfast and lunch a little better though, you’ve got EVERYTHING covered!
