Have you ever tried shopping at Trader Joe’s on a budget?

It’s HARD!

I wrote up this simple Trader Joe’s meal plan when my family and I were on a strict budget. I needed to keep my costs low – but I also wanted to be able to shop at Trader Joe’s.

As you will see from the post, we buy a lot of staples at a regular grocery store – milk, eggs, paper products, condiments, etc.

But, this Trader Joe’s meal plan includes everything you need for all your meals – all week!

If you are looking for a long-term CHEAP meal plan for your family, make sure you check out my “No Plan” Meal Plan here. I’m having a flash sale – so right now it’s under $10!

With this meal plan, you get 20 weekly meal plans that include mix-and-match dinner recipes per week. That is more than 100 easy recipes at your fingertips.

Each week includes a printable meal plan (with all recipes!) and a shopping list. You will also get kitchen tips, shortcuts, and easy hacks to multitask in the kitchen.
