My meal plan for the week - 9/7/20 - Plus a Free Printable Meal Planner!

Another week, another grocery order. Before Covid, I used to go to the grocery store 2-3 a week. Some weeks, I would make a plan. Other weeks I would just go to the grocery store and fill my cart. We were so used to spending $250-$300 a week on groceries. Plus any Target runs added to that. But once we bought a more expensive house, I knew that I had to cut costs somewhere. 

Meal planning really not that hard. Just finding the 30 minutes to an hour 1 day a week is all you need to find. I normally do it on Friday night or Saturday morning. I use a planner that I bought at Marshalls to plan everything out. Since I didn't start in the beginning of the year, I have more than enough pages that are unused to make my food list out on. 

Last week I only changed my menu once. I worked a late day and I wasn't in the mood to make beef enchiladas. Plus we had a Mexican dish not to long ago. Luckily, I froze the ground beef to use for another meal. Save what you can! 

 This week we are having for dinner:

Monday: Cheesy Pesto Chicken Casserole w/ Pasta

Tuesday: Sausage w/ noodles and carrots 

Wednesday: Keto Meatloaf w/ mashed potatoes and broccoli 

Thursday: Left Overs

Friday: Kids Pick

Saturday: Green Chicken Chilies Casserole 

Sunday: Spagetti w/ Meatballs 

After making my list, now it's time to see what I need at the store. Some things I stock up on, so I don't always need to buy everything we need. Keeping a good stock of non perishables is so important just incase something happens. I like to be prepared always! 

Here is my grocery list: 

I do a grocery pick up either Saturday or Sunday, whatever is available. The best part about this is that I don't have to get out of the car! I drive up and they bring it out to my car. They confirm with me and then open up the back of my suburban and load it all in there. That's it! 

Once I get home, I just make sure I have everything. I think only once, I was missing something. On the Walmart app, I start a return and they refund me right away. Also, If you don't like the quality of the item, they refund you as well. And if they have to substitute an item, you get charged the amount of the item you pick, unless its cheaper. I do notice that normally if I get a substituted item, the item that they used a better item. That works for me. 

Here is what I ordered this week. 

I only had 1 issue on some cheese. I ordered some sliced sharp cheddar cheese and when I went to go use it, it looked like it had mold on it. Now this cheese was still sealed. I may have been a fluke, but I didn't want to take my chances, so I processed a refund on the cheese. It asked me about the issue and refunded my money right away. 

After I do a grocery pick up, I normally get a survey on how my grocery pick up way. I am completely honest, as this is the time for them to make their great service even better. So once I get the survey, I will inform them of the cheese issue.
