Meal Plan Monday

Meal plan Monday! Thanks for checking out what we are having this week and how we do on costs. I'll report in Tuesday with the totals! We'll see how we do! It is always built in accountability reporting in here :). The goal for each week does not change - get everything for $50 or less.

Breakfasts, lunches, and snacks are basically the same this week.

Breakfasts - eggs, toast, yogurt, cereal, fruit
