We’ve partnered with Visa Clear Prepaid to bring you some great Summer Meal Planning Tips! The summer months are always the hardest time for meal planning and keeping enough groceries around for kids that seem to eat everything in sight! Especially with one almost teenage boy in the house, the amount of food that we go through is insane!
I thought I would share a few tips with you on how handle summer meal planning and NOT go broke!
Summer Meal Planning Tips
Make a Weekly Meal Plan – Plan out your week with all the meals you’ll make each day and any snacks. This will make creating your grocery list a whole lot easier! We created a FREE Printable Weekly Meal Planner for you that I keep on my refrigerator so we know what we’re having for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day of the week.
Print a few of the Weekly Meal Planners out and keep them on a clip board hanging in your pantry if you don’t have a spot on your fridge.
Keep Healthy Snacks On Hand – Instead of having chips and snacks with empty calories, keep bananas, string cheese and other filling snacks on hand for the kids. We go through a lot less snacks if I have options that fill you up more!
Make a Grocery Budget – Create a summer grocery budget and stick to it! A great way to do this is by using a prepaid card. I’m able to load the amount that I want to spend on groceries for the week and head out to the store, knowing that I cannot buy a bunch of things I don’t need because I have the correct amount in the card that I need for my grocery list. It’s so handy!
