Meal Planning Made Easy: 7 Easy Dinners and a Printable Grocery List!

I don't always love iVillage, sometimes it's full of stuff that I just really don't care about.  I'm still subscribed to 20 of their different lists though.

(I have mentioned the 5,000 emails I get each day  haven't I?)

While sorting through my inbox this morning I stopped and saw an email with the title 22 Quick weekday meals for under $20.  Upon opening it though  there was this:

Supermarket Shopping 101: Read This Before You Hit the Grocery Store

Then..... Then.... 

there was this:

Click here for a week's worth of dinner recipes and a printable shopping list!

While I don't always like to go by someone else's meal plan.. suggestions are always a plus, when it comes along with a grocery shopping list it makes it 90% more likely I will take more of these suggestions.

I almost always try to make a shopping list, because otherwise I buy a bunch of stuff and then I'm stuck with mismatched meals or I'm forgetting necessary ingredients for things I wanted to make.

I've been getting better at this, I've been good at sticking to my food budget and nobody has gone hungry yet :)
