Trader Joe’s Meal Plans: $70 or Less for a Week’s Worth of Dinners

trader joe's meal plan

I’ve got a new $70 meal plan up over at Life as MOM, if you’re interested. There are actually three now so far. They are pretty in-depth, offering lots of make-ahead options and cheats to saving money.

Yes, Virginia, you can have dinner for $10 or less.

#1 The Chicken Plan

#2 Mostly Meatless

#3 Pretty Meaty

  1. This is great! When you say 10$ average a meal, is this for one person or a family?

  2. Christina says:

    I’m very excited to try this. We recently followed the Chicken plan and it was cheap and tasty. Love!

  3. Jessica, thank you so much for making these meal plans. I appreciate them so much.

  4. Are there certain groceries that you regularly buy at Trader Joe’s? I’ve never been there, but would like to drive the 30 minutes just to look around. If there are great buys on certain items that you, a frugal shopper, stock up on, what might they be? I’m just curious what to look for. Thanks!

    • I think it depends on how you regularly shop and what kind of deals you find if you will think TJ’s is budget. For the non-GMO and ingredient guarantees, I think that makes it worth my while. I regularly buy their power greens, nuts, Ak-mak, rice cakes, canned coconut milk, boxed cereal, pasta, ground turkey, and frozen chicken. It’s not cheaper than I could find at a grocery store sale w/ or w/o coupons, but it’s better quality, so it works out.
