Monday Menu Madness: Week of 9/5/2016

This week, I challenged myself to cut our grocery budget in HALF.  Eek!  Between home remodeling projects, school starting, football season, grad school, and never ending piles of laundry, my grocery budget has grown exponentially due to lack of planning on my part.  When the grocery store employees know you on a first name basis because you go every day, it’s problematic (and slightly embarrassing).  So, in the spirit of a good challenge, here is our menu for the week of September 5th.  Be sure to click on the links in the menu below for recipes.

What’s for dinner at your house this week?  Share in the comments below 🙂

  1. You are amazing! I find that cold cereal is a sure budget hog, so way to go in planning a variety of breakfasts. I am going to have to use some of these breakfast ideas….just means I need to get up early enough to make it though, huh?
