October 15th Weekly Meal Plan

October 15 Weekly Meal Plan

Ever had a week where you were just overwhelmed and cooking dinner was the last thing on your mind? That was me last week. Our meal plan kind of got off track because we went to eat dinner with my dad for his birthday and then throw in a stressful work week and BAM! We were way off track and just really eating the easiest things to cook. With that in mind, I made my meal plan A LOT simpler this week so that I could just throw it all together in less than 30 minutes. I didn’t even put the days next to my meals so I didn’t feel like I was locked in to some kind of day for each meal.

As I said above, I went pretty basic with this meal plan. I also utilized Aldi Instacart this week and it was a life changer. Click the link to read all the details about my experience and to get $10 off your first order!

A lot of this was for dinner but some was breakfast. The mayo and bacon bits were for Chicken Salad that my husband and I can take to lunch!

Overall, I think cutting back on some exquisite meals really did save us. I could have definitely saved more if I went to Aldi myself and did the shopping but the $10 off coupon and free delivery really helped me save what I could have saved in store. If Aldi Instacart is available in your area you definitely have to try it out! Use my code for $10 off and free delivery 🙂 My code : AMURPHY14B117

 

Enjoy!
