September 2011 Menu Plan

Last month I tried my first monthly menu plan and I loved it. I don't know how it worked out, but by buying all my nonperishables at the first shopping day of the month and just perishables and any needed items every week, I came out spending WAY less than I normally do grocery shopping. So I'm going to go ahead and stick with the monthly planning for now :)
