One Month of Frugal Meals

Happy New Year! Now that it’s 2017, let’s all eat healthy, spend less, exercise daily, and tackle the world. 😉 I know one of my big goals is to whittle down my grocery bill a bit. Of course, that’s easier done when there’s a little inspiration to help a sister out.

An entire month of frugal meals for planning and inspiration!

To start off your new year right, I present to you, a month of frugal meals! The following round up includes:

  • 6 breakfast ideas
  • 4 meat recipes
  • 5 chicken meals
  • 11 soups & stews, with and without meat
  • 2 miscellaneous meatless mains
  • 9 extras (snacks, bread, drinks, etc.)

That means that this one post has 28 meals. There. Considering that you’ll likely eat out or eat leftovers for at least a few nights, your budget-friendly meal planning for the month of January is DONE. Am I right?

Some of the posts have more than one meal idea (easy chicken meals on the fly, homemade cereal recipes, etc.), so you can be flexible with them. If you don’t eat meat, many of these recipes can be made with a substitution.
