Monday Menu

I have two and half more weeks until payday with $45 dollars left in my grocery account. I definitely need a new plan! Next month I'm going to TRY and divide my grocery money between 3 weeks while spending 2 weeks worth in the beginning of the pay period.  Meanwhile, I keep praying and looking for ways to stretch the money I have left. My plan will be no stocking up on sales but only using the money I have left for necessities like meat and vegetables.



So here is the menu I pulled together from what I have on hand.

Lunch: Beef stew and half bologna sandwich (husband), no bread for me
