Meal planning is one of the best ways to save money and your sanity at dinnertime, but goodness, it sure takes a lot of work to drum up a menu. Compiling the recipes, writing out a shopping list, and then making the plan-of-attack can take me well over an hour every week and most weeks. I just don’t have the time. Or the energy.
We know that many of you want to stick to your grocery budget but just don’t enjoy meal planning. That’s why we created our WinCo Meal Plans. These plans contain everything you need to make 15 dinners for under $150 — the complete shopping list, the recipes, and the step-by-step instructions. We’ve done all the planning so all you have to do is print off the shopping list and hit your local WinCo!
The recipes will feed 4-6 people (4 adults or 2 adults and 3-4 children) and are kid-friendly. Each recipe is different (you aren’t doubling up on any one recipe, so you will have three weeks of variety) and can be prepared in less than an hour.
We’ve created two plans:
Designed for those without any dietary restrictions.
Designed for those with gluten sensitivities.
Each meal plan contains the following:
15 dinners for $150 with all the ingredients available at your local WinCo.
A detailed shopping list with WinCo prices. All you have to do is check your pantry and freezer and then hit the store.
Printable recipes. When you’re ready to make dinner, just pull out your recipe and prepare the meal. The recipes are designed to be simple — you should be able to whip a dinner in 30-60 minutes (and most of that time will be waiting for the food to cook!).
Instructions on how to best execute your plan and even a proposed calendar! We tell you exact what ingredients to freeze (the freezer prep part will take about 20-60 minutes) and how to best schedule your meals.
Each plan is available for immediate download for just $3.97!
These plans are not endorsed or affiliated with WinCo in any way. Each plan contains 15 main courses. You should expect to supplement with side dishes. The prices and product selection were confirmed in the Portland, Oregon area. Prices may be slightly different in your area.
