Simple, Frugal, From Scratch Meal Plans Subscription


Are you sick of the 5 'o clock stress? The "What's for Dinner?" questions? I want to try and help you out! I've created a month's worth of kid-friendly, simple, from-scratch meal plans.

Each month will contain 5 meal ideas for each week, all recipes included. You will also get a complete Grocery Shopping List to buy all your food for the month ahead of time. Very helpful if you order from a co-op or buy in bulk. You will finally know just what you need, no waste! Also included will be a calender with suggestions on when to plan your meals and a page showing that month's in-season foods so you know what to add more of and what to stock up on.


When you receive your monthly meal plans you will also be directed to a special blog page to get other ideas that go along with the month's plan if you care to include them. Also extra tips on how to save even more on the foods to be purchased for the month.

The meal plans are all either gluten free or easily adaptable to be gluten free.

If you love our recipes here on Little House Living you and your family will love these meal plans!

Little House Living monthly meal plans are only $5 each month! That's just $1.25 per week to have all your meal plans figured out for you and your grocery shopping already planned!

Looking forward to your meal plans!

Great idea!

Does everyone get the same menu, or do you plan what the person get’s according to what food plan they are on? Like if they avoid certain foods, needed for good health. Is it calorie based? nutrition wise diabetic ready?


4 Merissa March 22, 2013 at 5:09 pm

This is a plan with suppers only. It’s just a regular plan and it’s the same for everyone, not individualized, that would be a job for a nutritionist. This is just to provide ideas for your supper meals to take the headache out of planning.

Well Merissa thanks for the quick reply, I feel I need more. thanks Linda

How many servings is each plan for? (Cooking for 10 every night)
Are there items that would be hard to find without a Whole Foods (or other health food store) nearby? (closest one is 95 miles -one way)
It is kid type food or something ravenous teenagers would be interested in?
Can you post a sample? Like 2 or 3 days so we could see what would be included?


7 Merissa March 23, 2013 at 10:22 am

I don’t have a sample yet but if you browse through the recipes on the site you will get a good idea of what the recipes on the plan are like. Well it depends on how picky your teenagers are but my very picky husband loves these meals! I have the plan set on serving 4 but the grocery list and plans could easily be doubled to make them for a larger family. Yes, these are all very normal foods as I don’t have any fancy natural foods stores here either! 🙂

All recipe’ offers way to adjust the amount of ingredients for as many servings as you need. I have used it many times.


10 studor March 23, 2013 at 1:56 pm

I signed up! Excited to see what you have planned out 🙂

I signed up but I’m not sure what I’m doing… is this month’s plan somewhere and I can’t find it?


13 Merissa March 25, 2013 at 3:12 pm

Jena, hold your mouse over the button on the navigation bar of the website that says “Meal Plans” and this month’s current meal plans will pop up underneath. And in case you can’t find it I’ll be sending out the newsletter with the link this evening to all subscribers.

I LOVE your ideas and information!!

i think this is a very interesting service you are providing. i am a stockpile/prepper, so i always have ingredients in my home.

if i find a recipe i dont have the ingredients for, i print the recipe and it goes on my shopping list for next week. when i go to the cheap stores, i stockpile multiples of items i need. that way when i go to the regular grocery store or Super Walmart, i can buy staples/necessities and get those special items my cheap store may not supply.

Also, i rotate what foods i eat, by the meats i pull out of my freezer, which i rotate as well. i have it stocked with chicken, beef, turkey wings, chops, smoked neck bones, chicken wings, ribs (cheap cut). my other freezer has quick meals, breads, hot dogs, frozen veggies, lunch packs, mostly items for lunches and snacks. i have a pantry up front that holds mainly breakfast items, and some side items. my pantry in my back spare room has everything else. soups, canned veggies, box/dried items. we have 2 people, but i have 4 deluxe boxes of Cup of Soup! We are Ramen eating fools for our snacks!

I do however need a good dehydrator, and to learn how to use one. i also need to learn to can!

How do I know if this will fit into my monthly grocery budget?


18 Merissa May 25, 2013 at 4:22 pm

It should work for anyone with a grocery budget of $400 a month of less, depending of course on your grocery store prices and what you buy for lunches and breakfasts. We follow this meal plan (for 3 of us) for about $250 a month.

Hi – I tried signing up for your meal plans but not sure if it went through. Can you check and see if I am subscribed and let me know?


20 Merissa June 17, 2013 at 3:50 pm

Yes I see you on there! To find the current meal plans just put your mouse over the “Meal Plans” button on the top bar and the current month’s plans should pop up underneath. New months are released the on 25th.
