We live in a fast-paced world of options, customizing and personalization. Gone are the days of one-size-fits-all, and here to take their place are things that fit each one of us just right.
This goes for the real food and meal planning realm too. I’ve seen meal plans for gourmet dinners, semi-homemade meals and even paleo diets to name a few.
Each of these were created for a specific type of foodie, but unfortunately, none of these fit me.
I am a frugal foodie – someone who desires to feed my family real, wholesome foods without breaking the bank. Of all the meal planning memberships available, there hasn’t been one tailored specifically for the frugal foodie…
Finally! A meal plan created with your budget in mind. Friends, I’m happy to introduce you to Frugal Real Food Meal Plans.
How It Came to Be
Frugal Real Food Meal Plans is the first meal plan of its kind. It wasn’t born out of a weekly brainstorming session or on a whiteboard. It was created in the trenches where household manager meets family CFO, out of my own need to have a meal plan that actually worked!
As a busy (frugal foodie) mom with a grocery budget, I needed a meal plan that was practical, sustainable, made up of only whole foods and most importantly – a meal plan that worked with my own frugal grocery budget.
There’s plenty of other meal plans out there, but none of them fit the bill. So I created my own instead, and Frugal Real Food Meal Plans is where the rubber meets the road.
More than just a meal plan, it’s an organized system of shopping lists, prep lists and budgeting tools.
And I know this system works, because I use it myself to keep our own grocery budget at just $330/month.
What is Frugal Real Food Meal Plans?
It’s truly my passion to help you all on your own frugal real food journey, and I would LOVE to spend the day with each of you, going over ways to reduce our food waste, scouting out stores for good deals and sharing my own tricks for being efficient in the kitchen.
Unfortunately, my arms are only so long. So I came up the next best thing – Frugal Real Food Meal Plans.
This meal planning system is me, teaching you, step-by-step how to eat real food on a budget.
From the meal plan itself to shopping lists to price guides, I’ve left no stone unturned and given you every resource I could think of.
What’s Included with a Membership?
- You want meal ideas for hosting company? You got it.
- Tips for knowing what to cook for the freezer? Done.
- Slow cooker meals so you can (almost) take a night off of dinner? We got that too.
You wanted more than just a few meals to choose from too… so we packed in over 55 meals every month, covering you every night for dinner plus breakfast, lunch, dinner AND dessert.
- Want to create a price book? I’ve got downloads.
- Need help keeping track of what’s already in the kitchen? There’s tools for that too.
- Unsure about what’s in season this month? We’ve got it covered.
And of course, you get the meal plan, shopping lists and prep lists too. 😉 But wait. It gets even better!
Here’s the best part. I crunched some numbers and did the math and figured out a way for this meal plan to feed the average family of 4 for as low as $350 month! Pretty exciting, right?! Some of you might be wondering at this point…
Aw, c’mon Tiff – you can’t meal plan for that low of a budget.
Um… did you include meat?
LOL – surely there’s no room for organic/local/pastured items, right?
Funny that you ask, because this meal plan DOES include meat, and you DO have the option of buying organic/local/pastured items and I KNOW you can meal plan real foods for that little because I do it in my own house for LESS!
What Can I Expect?
Dinners are simple and made from scratch. Ingredients are common, and affordable. The recipes are included in the plan itself, so once you’ve downloaded the plan, you have everything you need at your fingertips.
Frugal Real Food Meal Plans was designed to help you feed your family well for less, but we’ve done all the hard work for you.
- We’ve gone through every recipe, swapping out expensive ingredients for more affordable ones.
- We’ve created two types of shopping lists, so you can shop in bulk and save, but still have fresh produce each week.
- We’ve even included prices next to each item on the shopping list, so you can know immediately whether an item is a good deal or not, and substitute for something more affordable if necessary.
How Does a Membership Work?
When you purchase a membership to Frugal Real Food Meal Plans, you’ll create your own account that allows you to login from anywhere. You’ll have access to the month’s meal plan BEFORE the month even beings, so there will be plenty of time to review it, match it up with your family’s calendar and adjust it if needed.
If you forget to login, don’t worry. We’ll send you a reminder. 😉
The plan itself comes with over 30 simple and practical money saving tips, but each new plan comes with NEW budgeting tips that are tailored specifically to that month’s meal plan. Combined with the resource library pictured above, we’re stretching those grocery dollars as far as they can possibly go.
