Menu Plan Monday: January 13

Last week I managed to knock two new recipes off my list.  The hubby has never been a fan of chicken breast and I figured out why.  Its just too much chicken for him.  So when I made chicken sandwiches, I sliced them in half making a thinner piece.  Everyone loved them.  

This week I am sticking to more familiar recipes.  Mostly because I procrastinated and don't have time to search for a new recipe to try this week.  We are also on a mission to waste less food, so there will be leftovers at least once a week for dinner.  Throwing away food is throwing away money and lord knows we need to be saving all we can.  This also means buying smaller packages of meat or stretching the bigger ones. By cutting chicken breasts in half, I was able to get two meals that we finished.  As opposed to making one dish with leftovers that get thrown out.  

I spend $100 on groceries and necessities a week.  Feeding 3 adults and 2 kids.  Every now and then we spend a little more.  Like this week when we decided to buy a Birthday cake over making one.  Smooth move Kim! How do you save money on groceries?  Do you write out a list and stick to it or do you wing it and spend whatever you spend?
