Menu Plan Monday 9/26

Here's our meal plan for 9/26-10/2. We rarely eat out, and when we do (once or twice a month tops) it's Taco Bell- $10 or less. Knowing we can make our own burritos for 1/4 of the cost is quite the incentive to planning and making our own meals. Starbucks coffee beans is our only planned indulgence, twice a month. :D

My goal is still to spend $100 a week (or less would be great), and while I made the goal last week, we went to Target for a re-stock of fruits and milk on Friday- so the true number would be closer to $125.  

Our meal plans are flexible, so if we want breakfast for dinner instead, we just improvise and move a meal to a later date. No food gets wasted, but we're not being forced to eat food that sounds unappetizing to us either.
