I promised I’d let you know how my two-week menu plan turned out, and I felt like it was a success! I was definitely pleased with the cost savings – even with two quick trips for produce and milk, I spent $100 total. My weekly grocery budget is $75, so I came in $50 under budget for the two weeks! By Thursday night of the second week I was running low on options for lunch and snacks, but other than that I was pleased with how long everything lasted.
Being a lover of grocery shopping, I won’t convert to two-week hauls any time soon. I truly enjoy shopping the aisles every week! However, I will resort to a two-week grocery haul and menu plan when I have a jam packed schedule and need to eliminate something from my to-do list (you might see one again soon).
Here’s the plan for this week – I am looking forward to the crab cakes and the BBQ beef sandwiches!
