Dinner Tonight: Budget Friendly

Dinner Tonight: Budget Friendly Shopping List: Week of January 10, 2022

Print Shopping List » Back to Your Week »

Here is your weekly meal plan and shopping list! This week, check your pantry to see if you have any rice or pasta leftover from last week’s meals. If you do, you may be able to reduce the amount you buy for this week. You might also have produce items like onions, celery, carrots and potatoes already on hand, so again, be sure to look before shopping.

Please note that the recipes provided may serve different numbers of people. The shopping list is built from the recipes, so depending on the size of your family, you may need more or less of some ingredients. Remember to check the serving sizes before you shop so you can adjust your list to work for your family!
