FREE Monthly Family Meal Planner

If you've never used our free monthly family meal planner you are in for a treat. I've done all the work for you. Each month includes 4 weeks of meals, recipes, and weekly printable grocery items. You will even find seasonal recipes - and it's all FREE! My meals are an outcome of me striving to feed my family better - organically, nutritiously, and still yummy food! Oh, and did I mention eat on a budget! Our family feels these meals are:
  • My meal plans are FREE! (Your visiting my site keeps the lights on so to speak, no extra charge!)
  • My meals are nutritious & balanced!
  • My meals are thrifty! (we pinch pennies by making good use of what foods are in season) Groceries cost our family of 5 about less than $125/week
  • My food is yummy! (These are all recipes my family loves; we include a dessert once a week and seasonal favorites)
  • My food is “real” and my family chooses to buy at least the dirty dozen organic!   (If you are looking for menus with boxed items, this is probably not for you)

{free} Weekly Shopping List Printable

First off, because I know you are going to ask, where is the Menu {free} printable?  I know I usually have free printables for everything! But I think it will be more helpful to you if you just read the menu {this post} on your smart phone, ipad, or computer. All the recipes are hyperlinked for your convenience! {This is how I am cooking now too}

 

>> July Grocery Shopping Lists <<

You can also pull up your shopping list from your smart phone, but I know sometimes it is easier to print this off to add your own notes {things you already have, add’l household supplies you need, etc.} Each weekly shopping list contains everything you need to make the recipes that week.  Easy Peasy! If you notice a mistake, please let me know so I can fix it. Thanks
