Meals & Deals: Week of 7/19/2015

Frugal Moms² meal plan for the week of 7/19/2015.

Meals:

Last week I didn’t get a chance to make most of the snacks, so I’m going with familiar snack recipes (smoothies) this week and trying some new lunch recipes. I kept most of the dinners in familiar territory, because the pace of things lately has been very hectic at work, plus trying to work on Frugal Moms² and Frugal Foodie Moms after the kids go to bed.

I launched Frugal Foodie Moms about a week ago, with a focus completely on food. Frugal Moms² will focus more on the nuts and bolts of frugal living, but I’ll keep the recipes up that are already here. I just feel like I’m drowning people in them! You feedback is welcome. I love to hear from you all about what you’d like to see on both sites. Just comment below or use the form on the Contact Us page to send your ideas, questions and suggestions.
