I am so excited for everything going on this week. My children are officially finished with school, so this week is all about reclaiming my house from the piles of school materials, and filling those recycle bins! We are getting ready for one last blow out scouting hurrah this week – Pack Committee Meeting on Tuesday, Girl Scout Bridging & Awards on Wednesday, and then our Girl Scout troop campout this weekend. All of this means that if I don’t plan meals for this week, its going to get really expensive really quick.
My plan … have enough snacks on hand to get us through any moment, and plan quick and easy dinners for the entire week.
Yesterday, I went grocery shopping and was able to score some great deals thanks to triple coupons. Some of our favorite snacks were on sale – cereal bars, granola bars, and Cheez-Its. One of my favorite deals – these Sargento Balanced Breaks snack kits. With the triple coupon deal, they came down to a little over $1 for 3 servings, and are perfect to toss in my purse when I know I’m going to be out and about instead of pulling through a drive through for fries & a soda. (You can print your own coupon here).
This Week’s Menu Plan
Breakfast: cereal bars, fruit, smoothies, oatmeal
Lunches: cheese & crackers, grilled cheese, apple butter sandwiches, leftovers

I’m hoping we can stick with the plan this week because that would be a real sanity saver with all of the running around we need to do. Just having a plan makes me feel a little better so I think it will be doable.
What’s on your menu plan for this week?
