Free Printable Menu Plan and Grocery List #4

You know having a menu plan is a good thing, but wouldn’t it be nice if someone did it for you? And created a grocery list at the same time? Well, right here, is a free printable weekly menu plan and grocery list!

I’m a huge believer in the benefits of having a menu plan. Not only can having a menu plan save your grocery budget, it will save your sanity as well! I love menu planning and have been planning a menu nearly every week since my husband and I got married almost 10 years ago!

If you’re all too familiar with the drive thru, having a menu plan in place will help you bring back your evening meals at home. Without a plan, it’s all too easy to throw together an unbalanced meal or go to out for fast food again. Not only will you be eating better with a plan in place, you’ll be having more fun sitting down with those you love knowing that everyone is being well nourished.

However, if you’re new to planning a menu, it can be overwhelming. That’s why I’m starting a new weekly series of free printable menu plans and grocery lists for you to use!

While I would love for you to learn how to create your own menu plans, I also love to help where I can. As a busy work at home mom, I know there simply aren’t enough hours in a day for us women to do it all. We have to pick and choose what we think is best. Something I strive for in our family, but is always a work in progress, is that we’re sitting down and eating a healthy meal together on a regular basis. Preferably to a meal I cooked at home because it’s cheaper and better for us!

This FREE Weekly Menu Plan series will help you get started cooking at home with 5 meals, 1 salad, 1 dessert and side dish suggestions that you can make on your own.

That’s five meals that you can stretch however you need. Depending on your family size, you might end up having leftovers or you might end up eating it all in one go. Adapt each recipe to suit your needs. Regardless, you’ve got 5 meals planned and and two open nights for leftovers, planned take-out or something simple like sandwiches. You’ll feel so good knowing things are planned and ready to go!

Having a menu plan in place can drastically reduce your grocery bill and save you so much trouble when the clock hits 5 o’clock.

Here’s what’s in this week’s plan:

Hamburger soup (serve with whole grain buns)

Roast Beef with potatoes and carrots (serve with this week’s salad)

Roast beef sandwiches (Use leftover roast and serve on buns with raw veggies)

Chicken Caesar Wraps (serve with raw veggies)

Parmesan Garlic Spaghetti (serve with leftover chicken and this week’s salad)

Salad: Broccoli Slaw with Pecans and Cranberries

Dessert: Mini Fruit Pizzas

10 Deals You Need to Get from Real Canadian Superstore this Week

As many of you have noticed, the weekly coupon matchups haven’t been updated since last December. As a one man team here at Simply Frugal, it’s simply not possible for me to find the time to sit down for hours to complete them each week. So for the time being, they’re off the table. 🙁 Most likely a temporary thing until my youngest is a bit older.

But, I’m trying something new. Starting this week, I’m going to feature 10 deals that I think are great from various Canadian grocery stores and drugstores. This particular post will feature 10 deals that you “need” to get from Real Canadian Superstore (West). Many of the deals will not require coupons, but I will list any matching coupons if available.
