Free Weekly Menu + Grocery List – Year 3 Week 45 – Low Cost Menu

I’m pretty sure that the biggest cheater tip I have is the free weekly menus + grocery lists. There are almost 3 years of them, free for the printing. You don’t get much more time saving than being able to skip the menu planning and shopping list making.

I love printing off that list each week and taking it to the store. For a while, I didn’t use the menus I publish here, because I’m always trying out new recipes. But what I’ve learned is that the lists use such common ingredients, it is easy to adapt the meal plan as I need to each week.

If you’ve never tried using the Print. Shop. Cook. feature, you might give it a try. And this week’s menu not only helps you cheat by saving time, but all the recipes are from my Low Cost Meals list, so you can save money this week too.

As always, you get 6 dinners and 1 dessert. Serving suggestions are included in bold on the recipes and in curly brackets {} on the grocery list.

Here’s what is on the menu this week:

Pepperoni Pizza Pasta, salad

Smoked Sausage, Cabbage and Oat Soup, Cornbread

Slow Cooker Beans for the Freezer, tortillas and taco fixings, chips and salsa

Bread Eggs, fresh fruit, milk or yogurt

Mini Deep Dish Pizzas, salad

Ham and Pineapple Fried Rice

Chocolate Cobbler in the Slow Cooker

  1. You have literally changed the way my family eats. I love using your weekly menus. We are trying new foods and your recipes are fantastic. Everything is delicious! I look forward to Sunday evenings to see what is on the menu for the coming week. I am so thankful for you and this blog!

  2. For year 3 week 45, it seems that the grocery list is missing.
    Love the website and appreciate all the work you do! You have simplified meal time for many families!

  3. So glad I came across your 31 day link up! Our fridge is empty and I’ve been putting off going to the grocery store because I’m tired of our same old menu plans. So excited to try some of your recipes!!

  4. I just discovered your site last week. Can’t believe you’ve been doing this for so long and I hadn’t heard of it before! I immediately started printing and searching for a binder and page protectors. I have printed about 7 weeks now and am using them to mix and match with our own recipes, but have actually started planning a menu and writing it all out for my family to see and help with. Thank you SO much for the inspiration to get started on this much more effective plan, and the wealth of wonderful recipes that have made cooking dinner much more exciting again! My family is still raving about the honey mustard chicken and I made it 4 days ago!! Thanks again (expecially from my 8 year old boy who brings up that chicken at least 5 times every evening lol)

  5. I am so excited to have found you this week. THank you so much for the effort involved and for keeping the plans etc. FREE. What a blessing, this will be my tightest week in years but after seeing your offerings I feel hopeful that I’ll still be able to feed my family balanced meals. Thank you again!
