A Weekly Meal Plan: 21 Meals Under $100

In an effort to trim the budget and still put a healthy and nutritious meal on the table for my family, I took the Switch and Save Challenge at Aldi when I attended the grand opening of the store in Katy, TX. The weekly meal plan I created includes 21 meals under $100. I remember shopping Aldi when we lived out of state and loved every bit of the savings so I already had an idea of how easy the switch and save challenge was going to be for me.

7 days, 21 meals under 100...a weekly meal plan for families on a budget

While I was at the grand opening, I had three other amazing Houston Bloggers with me and we all took different approaches to our taste test choices.

Lisa from Milehimama was focused on seeing if the Aldi brand was as good as the national brands they already purchase.  She was pleasantly surprised to find that the Aldi brand Greek yogurt is dye free…which is perfect for her family!

Brenda from Meal Planning Magic was looking for products that were similar to what she already purchases at other stores for lower prices.

Fred from Mocha Dad took the approach of choosing items to make the kids’ lunches and dinners for the week.

For me, it was about easy meals I could get on the table in 15-30 minutes all while still providing a balanced meal my family could enjoy.

To show you just how you can easily Switch and Save at Aldi, I wanted to give you all the details so you can save as well!

      This was over a year ago, but if my memory stands correctly the total was around the $97 mark. Thanks for stopping by Devon! Hope you enjoy the recipes and they help you save a little too! :)

    We love Aldi’s! It is our primary grocery store. What we can’t find at Aldi’s, we’ll buy at Wal-mart. We do, however, purchase our meat from a local grocery – can’t beat the quality.
