I find spending the money on the meat, and cutting out all the tv dinners, junk food,and snacks works well.
Here is one meal plan, try it, it works:
Buy a buy one get one free roast. Take it broil it in a crock pot for 8 hours. Shred it, You now have tacos, meat to mix with eggs for omlettes,
lunch meat, sheperds pie, Bbq beef sandwiches.
One roast will make us meals for four days. You get two roasts for $20.00.
There is usually always one store that has them buy one get one free.
The you buy butter, eggs, bread, noodles , potatoes, buns, and sauce. Cereal for breakfast, and some vegetables and milk.You will eat for the whole
week for $50.00
Really does work, and you feel better that eating a bunch of junk.
This is for a family of three, but we used to spend $150 a week.
