| Creating a Menu Plan
One of the best ways to save money is by creating a menu plan. In this lesson I will walk you through how I create my menu plan each week to maximize the items I already have on hand.
Some of the benefits of creating a menu plan include:
- Helps to prevent Over-Buying
- Utilizes what you already have on hand
- Reduces extra grocery trips
- Prevents eating out
- Saves you money!!!
| Additional Resources
You may want to print out the following Menu Plan and Weekly Shopping List. I keep the shopping list on my fridge and write down items as I think of things that I need rather than running to the store for a few items.

Awesome website with great tips! I also love making menu plans because it allowed me to organize and have a meal ready when my boys were hungry, instead of running to Pollo Loco like we used to. It reduces so much stress too! Food.com is a great website with all kinds of recipes! You can look for recipes based on ingredients, look up nutritional facts for produce, and even send the recipe to your mobile phone! Food.com & PassionForSavings.com are two pretty cool websites that make my life that much easier :) Thanks Heather & anyone else behind the site :D
I have learned so much from this site….keep up the excellent work!!!!!
