Meijer Meal Planning Week 12/16: 6 Meals $40

Meijer Meal Planning

It’s a new week of bringing you these awesome budget friendly meal planning for all of you Meijer Shoppers. 

For this week the Meijer Matchups posted here on A Mitten Full Of Savings, I’ve been able to come up with a whole week’s worth of dinners that will cost you less than $50, along with a few things from your pantry!   You can also print out my FREE Meal Planning printables that will help you plan and organize your meals each week! (this is always super helpful for me!!)

  • This is based on a family of 4-5- so you will need to adjust it accordingly for a bigger or smaller family.
  • All items are on sale or part of the lower Meijer price. If you don’t have the pantry items, then you will need to add those into your final price.

Meal 1:  Baked Chicken Two Ways with Stuffing and Vegetables  $9.66
