Hi everyone, here is my Monthly Meal Plan for September! Can I just say that I can’t believe it’s September already! Where did my summer go, can someone please tell me that?

Now that school is back in session, my monthly meal plan is a necessity for keeping my sanity. I usually shop at costco for things in bulk, then hit the grocery store for produce and any extras for the week. I really try to shop only for things on the list which helps save money and keeps me from buying things I don’t really need.

I love the iPhone Shopping List app. They have both a lite version and one for $1.99. The paid version allows you to add in your own categories. Since I like to organize mine by the isles in my local store, I splurged for the $1.99 to help me customize. That way all of my items for one lane are in one category. Makes it very nice! Also this app stores the items you add in so the next time you go, you can just type in the item and it will pull up in your saved list along with the category and everything! You can also add in prices so you know when things are on sale although I haven’t gotten that crazy with it yet.

I hope this meal plan helps relieve at least a little bit of the stress we all feel on a daily basis!



  1. I have just discovered your meal plan and love it (and the idea). I was wondering if you keep track of how much you spend on groceries per week or month. I have five kiddos and meal planning and meal budgeting have been my really big weakness. We have looked at joining Costco and was just curious on what you budget is. Also I wanted to let you know that I am using your LOTW and Road Trip USA this year and love it. I am also looking to add some of your other curriculum as the year progresses. I have 4 boys and 1 girl and they all have dissabilities and learning issues. Thanks for all you do.

  2. Just wanted to let you know that I decided to take the plunge and plan out a month of meals for the first time. I used you plan from last month and then subsituted where necessary! I can’t wait to try out some of your recipies! Thank you so very much. This will be a great help (and I need all the help I can get since this is my first year homeschooling!) I did a blogpost (http://burtsintexas.blogspot.com/2012/09/menu-plan-for-september.html) and mentioned your fantastic site in it. Thank you again!

  3. Ok. It’s official – You Rock! I’ve begun following your blog as I start my adventure in teaching preschool and you’ve got great resources. The fact that you just made my task of feeding my own family soooo much easier (you basically took the thinking right out of it) is way beyond cool. You’ve even linked to the recipes. Thanks!
