Menu Plan Monday

To help stop throwing money down the drain save money, one of the simplest things to do is to plan out your weekly menus. 

Jessie's Weekly Menu:

This week I didn't use any coupons while shopping (I don't know about you, but I can get burned out after a few weeks of using coupon matchups) so I just have a basic menu that usually works without coupons to save money:

Monday:  Chicken Thighs w/rice & Salad (inspired by Milly :)
Tuesday:  Tortellini w/black beans, canned tomato, feta and pesto sauce
Wednesday:  Sloppy Joes w/fries and corn on the cob
Thursday:  Soup Night w/bread and salad
Friday: Pizza Night w/salad (with the $2 dough at the grocery store)

Milly's Weekly Menu:

I am using a coupon match-up with some items to help with the fact that we are beyond broke right now. We shop for produce at our local farmers markets, which is full of win because we support local agriculture, as well as pay less for better food. See? Winning!

Monday: Chicken alfredo with brocolli
Tuesday: Baked beans with hotdogs and brown bread, salad
Wednesday: Pasta and meat sauce with green beans
Thursday: Pizza with Salad
Friday: Red beans and rice tortillas, with tomatos and lettuce
