Budget-Shopping Meal Plan

Budget-Shopping Meal Plan-

Our grocery shopping budget was $100 for one week of meals. I made a list of meals I plan on making and a shopping list of ingredients needed with an estimate price for each item to get an estimate for our shopping list to make sure it doesn't go over our weekly food budget of $100. I had to edit my food list for the week a couple of times and this is what the finished list was: 

Meal plan-10 Meals for Lunch & Dinner:

Pasta Salad x2 meals
hotdogs x2 meals
chicken soup, bbq x2 meals
homemade pizza- sun lunch/mon left overs x2
meatloaf x1
hamburgers x1

Breakfast/snacks/desserts 7 meals:

muffins & cereal x2
pancakes & bacon x1
sweet bread & fruit x1-2
breakfast tacos (eggs, potatos, vegies on tortilla) x1
scrambled eggs, sausage, gravy & homemade toast x1
oatmeal & fruit w/yogurt x1-2
