Man, I just did not know what to make this week. I think it was because I tried meal planning while in a food coma from Thanksgiving dinner, haha. I knew that one of the things I wanted to do was buy another frozen turkey to use later, and I needed to spend at least $20 at Meijer to get the turkey for half price. I do most of my shopping at Aldi, so I had to get creative in what I bought at Meijer and the meals I was going to make. Overall I did pretty good, and stayed on budget! Let’s see what I got.
