March Menu Plan and Budget

Budget - $400 - I think we can, I think we can! 

Our family monthly budget is $500 (just raised this in December to allow a little more freedom in our groceries for hungry teenagers) but I am going to try my best to stick with $400 each month.  So far, for DecemberJanuary, and February I haven't been able to do that.  

Our breakfast and lunch menus stay pretty much the same and breakfast foods are always available as a backup dinner option too!

I don't elaborately plan but like to have an idea of what is on hand and what is needed. 

Here is my list of March Meals.  

ham steaks
pasta x 4
oven bbq chicken x 2
rotisserie chicken
pork roast
eMeals ideas x 4
cubed steak
beef roast
sloppy joes
breakfast x 2

I'll add in the videos as I make them and update the budget overage/shortage.


  1. I have been enjoying your menus and your videos. I used to be a regular reader, and now I'm back.
    A good way to help plan menus and to save money that we have been using for some time now is One Harvest. Check out to see the latest menus. Most of your shopping done online, pick it up a week later at a local church. We have really enjoyed pretty much everything that we have gotten through them. Hope that helps!

    1. Thank you so much for sharing this! I have never heard of it and there is a local church where it can be picked up. It looks awesome!!!


Thanks for stopping by - let me know that you did!
