Flexible Weekly Meal Plan

Last week I wrote about how I am able to spend under $450 a week for our groceries. We are a family of five and in order to stick to a strict budget, I rely heavily on my meal planner to stay organized and on track. I utilize a flexible meal planner that outlines the meals that I will cook throughout the week without locking me into a rigid schedule. My life is pretty hectic and I have learned that flexibility is the key to keeping things less stressful. If you have shied away from meal planners in the past because of the rigid schedule take a look at mine to see if it could work for your family.
