Meal Plan & Grocery List on a Budget

Lately I have been taking advantage of Walmart’s Online Ordering and free grocery pick up. As someone who loves to roam the aisles I was always really hesitant to do online shopping but lately I have been really loving it. It saves me a ton of time PLUS it also ends up saving me money.

I find that being able to review my orders in the cart before I purchase makes me think a little harder about our meal plan and weekly needs. Plus, I can always double check my pantry and freezer inventory to make sure I have (or don’t have) what I need to make for the week. 

As always, I suggest using what you already have in your pantry and freezer and then just using your grocery trip to fill in what you need. I have a small stockpile of pantry staples and frozen foods that I cycle through that have been so important in helping to keep my weekly grocery budget pretty low. 

You can check out my tips for creating a good stockpile here.  I also have a list of easy meals to make from your pantry.

I highly recommend using Ibotta to help you earn cash back on your groceries. This week I earned  $3.10 back on items I was going to purchase anyway. When I’ve earned $50, I will withdraw the cash and use it to add to my stockpile and replenish anything I’m really low on.

Walmart Meal Plan

As I mentioned above, I already have some stuff on hand that I am using for this meal plan. Here’s what I had on hand so you get a sense of how I built out my meal plan. 

From the Freezer:

  • Steak
  • Pasta Sauce
  • Lunch Meat – I got a good deal on lunch meat so I put one package in the freezer (yes you can freeze lunch meat!)
  • Bread – I still have a loaf of store bought bread and 1 loaf of homemade bread that is more than enough for the week. 

From the Pantry:

  • Potatoes
  • Rice
  • Beans
  • Quinoa – This was an impulse buy when it was super cheap and I haven’t used it yet. 
  • Oatmeal
  • Baking Soda, Baking Powder, Salt and Spices. 

From the Fridge

  • Ricotta – Walmart substituted the small ricotta in my grocery order for a large one, so I’m using up what’s left to make baked ziti. 
  • Lettuce – I always buy a 3 pack of Romaine lettuce and it lasts us about 2 weeks. 

Dinners

  • Grilled Steak, Roasted Potatoes and Brussel Sprouts
  • Pizza Night
  • Chicken Paprikash with Rice and Broccoli (This recipe is our kids favorite dish!)
  • Instant Pot Turkey Chili ( I use this as my base recipe and tweak it)
  • Baked Ziti and Salad – This will be enough for 2 dinners
  • Leftovers

Lunch 

All served with Fruit

  • Ham & Cheese Sandwiches
  • Macaroni and Cheese
  • Bean and Quinoa Salad
  • Bagels

Breakfast

All served with fruit

  • Eggs and Biscuits (I made biscuits from scratch using this recipe. They were a hit. I made a double batch and we can eat them throughout the week)
  • Bagels
  • Oatmeal

Snacks

  • Veggie Straws
  • Cheese Sticks
  • Apples and Peanut Butter
  • Chocolate Chip Cookies (This is my favorite recipe)
  • Chocolate Banana Muffins
