Cost-calculated meal plans

I just thought I’d highlight the blogs in my Google Reader that have broken down their menu’s costs for the week.

Three cheers for you guys! If you’ve calculated the costs for your menu, won’t you include a link in the comments so I can start reading your blog?

Rachel is making some delicious-sounding meals this week and feeding her family for $18.41. She is fixing meats and vegetables, and it sounds great and is good for ya, too!

Kristy is spending $21.77 this week. I can’t remember how many she’s feeding. Everything looks delicious and frugal there!

Over at Frugalfoodstuffs, you’ll see a menu for $25.39. From chili to linguini to a special Christmas dish, everything looks great over at her house!

So, what are you waiting for? Why not join in the fun and start calculating your food costs? We’ll help ya, if need be.

Update:

D’oh! I totally forgot to mention Cheap Healthy Good. Visit Kris’ blog to see recipe cost break-downs as recipes are posted.  Check out today’s post featuring “wacky cake” that’s only .17 per serving!

  1. Hi Kacie,

    I apologize up front for the straight-up self promotion.

    While I don’t calculate weekly menu expenditures, my blog is based on the idea that good food is frugal food. Every recipe post includes a cost breakdown at the end, and it might help some of your readers.

    Happy holidays!
    Kris

  2. Whoops! I subscribe to your blog, and I can’t believe I forgot to include you in this round-up. Sorry about that! Folks, be sure to visit Cheap Healthy Good! (see my updated post for the URL)

Hey! I'm Kacie, wife to Shane and mother to Jonathan (7), Vivienne (5) and Amelia (2) . I write about my family's finance: how we save money, improve our spending, and plan for the future.

I hope I can inspire and encourage you to improve your situation. See disclosure.

I'm adopting a much slower-paced posting schedule, and treating this as a hobby blog now.

Keep in Touch!
