Let’s Eat! 2 Week mealplan

Here’s my 14 day meal plan consisting of mostly organic / “clean-ish” eating options. This feeds a family of 5-6 (sometimes with leftovers depending on how hungry everyone is!). My goal is to get the cost down, but this currently totals around $250 (shopping mostly sale items and/or using cartwheel coupons when shopping at Target). Here is the shopping list, with the meal plan following after. C – represents items purchased at Costco and T – represents Target. These are the 2 main stores I shop at because I find I can save the most $$$ and get the best bang for my buck! Some items I already have on hand in the pantry like seasoning, honey, peanut butter and hazelnut spread.
