Even having double the budget, we still went over - Meal Plans and Grocery Trip for February 20th - 26th

meal plans and grocery trip, $100 budget,  
Since we didn't do our weekly grocery shopping the week before, this week's list was rather long.  I will admit that with the budget being double the amount, we did purchase some items that were not needed and not on the list.

Taking a stroller to Walt Disney World

Walt Disney World, Disney vacation, taking a stroller to Disney World,
When we started thinking about planning a trip to Walt Disney World, I was torn between taking a stroller with us or not.  Walt Disney World does have strollers available to rent, but are on the bulky side.  We ended up deciding to take our stroller so that we didn't have to carry Michael all over the parks.

It's been almost seven years since we bought our three story townhouse and we have finally started the kitchen remodel process.  We want to try and upgrade our kitchen by spending as little money as possible.  Our goal is to also try and pay this in cash as much as possible.  Therefore, this remodel will be in several phases.

When I was choosing what to plan for dinners this week, I had to keep in mind about what meats I had in the freezer.  One pound of hamburger and 11 breast of chicken - what to make with that and not make everyone sick of chicken?  Since the weekends are normally our splurge days, here's what I had planned for this week:

Cutting it close, but still kept it under budget! - Meal Plans and Grocery Trip for January 30th - February 5th

meal plans, grocery trip, $50 weekly grocery budget,
Michael and I ended up doing the grocery shopping on Monday morning.  Just didn't feel like doing the shopping over the weekend.  We had a lot of household items on our list this week which eats up a good bit of the budget.  Since I knew that my food budget would be less, I decided to plan meals where I already had the items or they were on the cheap side.

One Dish Supper

recipe, hamburger meat, potatoes, kidney beans, onions, dinner on a budget,
I decided to try a recipe, One Dish Supper, that my mom used to make when I was a kid even though my husband does not care for beans and potatoes.  It was rather easy to make and fairly cheap.
