If you want to save money on groceries, then one thing you can try (other than using coupons – which will be discussed later during our bootcamp), is monthly menu planning!

Have you tried cooking make ahead freezer meals?  If you would like to spend less time in the kitchen or drive-thru, and save a boat load of money (even without using coupons!), then it’s time to start cooking ahead.  Here is one example Make Ahead Freezer Meals for a Month – specifically for Wegmans shoppers.  It’s FREE – just click here to download and print.  Even if you don’t shop at Wegmans, you can still make ahead these 20 recipes and use the shopping list at your own store.  

If you aren’t a fan of making ahead and freezing meals, you can still create a month long menu plan and shop just for those items.  Check out how MyFreezEasy is the best tool when it comes to creating easy meal plans for ANY diet!
