For years I have been stressing over the menu planning/grocery shopping issue and struggling each and every week to come up with something. The result is a late Sunday-night shopping trip to get us through just a couple of days, followed by rather expensive eating out the rest of the time. It has become a vicious/expensive cycle. We need to keep to our grocery budget - and reduce it if we can.
Today I came across the $5 Dinners website, and it is like the heavens opened up and the angels sang... Not only does this awesome lady post recipe after frugal recipe, she creates a weekly menu AND has a handy-dandy shopping list creator - for each and every menu. Just click the items you actually need and print. The archive goes back for ages, and it is all for free.
