With the rising cost of living, I’ve created a budget-friendly meal plan this week to help you save at the checkout. Here’s some inspiration for easy and cost effective dinners everyone will enjoy.
BENEFITS OF MEAL PLANNING
Each week I plan my meals for the following week, this is called meal or menu planning. Some think it’s not worth it, but it really is a simple task that takes 5-10 minutes to plan one week of meals. The money and time that these five minutes save me throughout my week, makes it well worth the effort.
