Need to cut back on your grocery spending? Today I have another two week grocery list and meal plan for you – and this one is two weeks of EASY MEALS for $100 or less!
Hi friends! I’m back today with another easy meal plan and grocery list for you.
While I normally find myself grocery shopping every single week, I’ve found that the times when I plan ahead and do grocery shopping for two weeks at once I always end up saving money.
The best part about the two-week meal plan and grocery list I’m sharing today is that you’ll only spend $100 or less, depending on what you already have in your pantry. Hard to beat $100 for two weeks of groceries, am I right?
I’m calling this a meal plan for a family of four, though it works well for my husband and me and our three littles.
My Two-Week Easy Meal Plan For $100 or Less
As I mentioned in my last post about two weeks of groceries for $100, to simplify my meal planning I mainly plan for dinners and just keep some basic items on hand for breakfasts and lunches.
cereal, eggs, oatmeal (regular or baked), yogurt
salad, quesadillas, pb & j sandwiches, leftovers
apples, oranges, pretzels, crackers, homemade granola bars or energy bites
Week One Meals:
- Salsa Chicken w/ Potato Wedges and salad.
- Chicken Burrito Bowls – Rice, beans, chicken, and your favorite toppings. We often use leftover grilled chicken for this but if you’re cooking your chicken the day this recipe for stovetop chicken is fantastic!
- Baked Ziti w/ green beans – Make this in two 8×8 pans and stick one in the freezer for next week.
- Sloppy Joes w/ carrots and applesauce – Use any recipe that calls for 2 lbs. of ground beef. I use my mom’s!
- Breakfast Burritos
- Crockpot Taco Soup – Stick half in the fridge or freezer for next week.
Week Two Meals:
- Beef Stroganoff Sandwiches
- Sloppy Joe Baked Potatoes – Use leftover Sloppy Joes from week one to top your baked potatoes along with other favorite toppings.
- Chicken Gyros – Stuff Pita bread with lettuce, chicken, tzatziki sauce (I buy mine to make it simple) and your favorite toppings.
- Baked Ziti – Pull from the freezer and bake.
- Crockpot Taco Soup – Pull from the freezer and heat on the stove. I may serve a few quesadillas as well if the leftover soup isn’t enough.

I hope this two week meal plan and grocery list is helpful to you. Food is one of those areas on the budget where it’s so easy to overspend, but a little meal planning goes a long way in helping to cut down on the costs!
