Ideas and resources for menu planning in January, many seasonal winter and real food recipes. Very simple ingredients, from scratch, frugal recipes.
You can save so much money by planning your meals. Even if you only plan three days at a time, you can be more thrifty by planning ahead.
*Attention real food purists – the recipes I link/pin are all from scratch, but some of them you may have to make substitutions or modifications. For example, I link recipes that have sugar, but you can substitute whatever your favorite sweetener is.
