Meal Planning 2/14 thru 2/20


Should you be a new reader of "I'm Not Your Mama's Martha!", please click Meal Planning With Amanda and read through how to begin meal planning for yourself and to understand how, exactly I feed my family of three breakfast, lunch and dinner for, on average, $150 per week.


So sorry I am so late to post this, my mom was visiting this past week and we've just been having so much fun that my blog was the easiest and first thing to be neglected.  Forgive me!

Going through the weekly ad (you can view yours at after typing in your zip code and finding a store near you!), I found some fantastic super store coupons for things we use: string cheese, frozen pizza, Organic mini chocolate chip cookies, mini bagels and The Eating Right brand of spaghetti O's!  Because my freezer is currently FILLED TO THE BRIM, I did not opt to purchase any meats this week, even though ground turkey was Buy 1 Get 1 Free again this week.
