When I first started out planning my budget and trying to figure out more ways to save, I used a meal planning service. I used it as a guide to keep me on a good path until I was confident enough to plan things on my own.
For $16 you can get six months of recipes and grocery lists to help you plan five complete family dinners each week from Relish! This is a great way to start out. They have several options for each diet need too.
Once you get the feel for things, you can start using my FREE meal planner with removable grocery list too!
