This week as I sat down to make our my meal plan and grocery list I began to realize that we had so much on hand already it seemed silly (and wasteful) to not use those items up first. Last week was a wonky week and most of our meals we had planned did not get made. We also still had fruit on hand, items to make side dishes, and a ton of meat. We had quite a bit of snacks too!
So I decided to base my meal plan for this week on what we had on hand and attempted to come up with meals using those items and decreasing the amount of items I would need to buy. Needless to say I was able to come up with breakfast, lunch and dinner options with only needing to buy a few additional items to complete those meals.
Instead of wasting what was already in our home, I took a step back and took advantage of everything we had. In the end my grocery bill was greatly reduced and that makes me one happy person!
So what will we be eating this up coming week.
