Good day! Are you starting to get overwhelmed with school, activities, and life in general? So much that you haven’t had time to cook a decent meal in weeks, and you’re living off of take out and cereal? Fret no more fellow homeschooler because I have our March Monthly Meal Plan up for you today!
These seriously take the stress out of cooking for me. Thankfully I have a daughter who loves to cook and helps me stay on track. It can be so easy to hit the drive-thru on busy days, but hopefully this will help you be better prepared so that you can have home-cooked meals on a regular basis!
I take my monthly meal plan each week and make a grocery list then head to the store. Right now I have to go on weekends usually because that’s about the only spare time I have. I get just what’s on the meal plan for the week and that way I’m sure to have ingredients for all of my meals. I also find that weekly shopping helps with things like produce which can spoil easily. And it keeps our budget down since I’m not buying a bunch of things we don’t need!
That way we have fresh ingredients, and home-cooked meals on most days. We still usually end up eating out once a week just due to me not having time or when I’m protesting against cooking again, but if I know we’re mostly eating at home, then I don’t feel so bad!
I hope this meal plans are helping you all as well!

I like to shop once a week, so I just make a list off of my menu plan and head to the store. I find that I spend less when I shop off of a list, then flying by the seat of my pants. I also end up with ingredients that will actually go together instead of a bunch of random items that don’t amount to anything.
