    This meal plan is incredible!!! Make 20 meals for under $150.00 and it includes a full Holiday Feast! All of the recipes are freezer cooking friendly, and there are step by step instructions on how to create this meal plan! See how this plan can make your life so much easier!

    I am thrilled to share this entire meal plan and shopping list so you can buy and make 20 meals for under $150 at Aldi *including a Thanksgiving feast*! Keep in mind that prices vary per store, so yours may be a little higher or lower depending on the item. Also, this meal plan is based on a family of four; however if you have teenage boys that eat a TON you may want to prepare a little more food than listed. Or your family may have small children (like mine) where all of these meals will easily feed our family of six. This meal plan includes main dishes, side dish, and vegetables for all 20 meals!

    We organized this calendar around a holiday month to make it as easy as possible! This time of year is really busy and we want to help you focus on your family. We designed this meal plan so that you have freezer meals ready the entire week before the holiday. Then the two days afterwards, you'll use leftovers to create two more dishes!  In our meal plan we purchased a 14 lb Turkey, for our family that is the size we need but if you have a larger family you may need to spend a little extra money on the Turkey.

    We priced it out, did our shopping, and spent $149.52! That's $0.49 under budget! You don't have to get this all in one trip if that doesn't work for your family. You can also make ahead and freeze many of these for a quick meal later on; we have noted that in the printable pack available below.

  • I purchased this and was charged for it but never received the downloads! Can you help me please? I have used your store before and it worked great and the meal plans are wonderful but something happened during transmission I think.
