The Monk backbone of the Monk Manual is the PAR Method, short for Prepare, Act, Reflect, meant to parallel the approach of a monk to daily life. The method has three steps. Make intentionality foundational. Prepare your mind, heart and schedule each day so that you can focus on the truly most important things and prioritize your life.

Back when Pablo and I first got married (six years ago this month, wow!) I was very careful about sticking to our $50 weekly grocery budget. When I went grocery shopping I would add everything up on my phone’s calculator until I got a little more used to the prices. I did a pretty good job for awhile with sticking to that $50 weekly grocery budget!

Well, then the kids came along, and as you know, grocery shopping with kids can be a bit crazy. So, for the last little while I have not done such a great job at sticking to my list and ultimately my budget. Oops.

Well, this month I determined that I was going to do better! We usually budget a little bit more than $50 a week now that we have two kids but for this month we decided to challenge ourselves. So, I’m working with a $50 weekly grocery budget for the month, trying to come in a little under $50 when possible!

Not sure you’re ready to spend only $50 a week on groceries? Check out this post about my $60 weekly grocery budget or this $120 two-week meal plan!

Keep in mind that when I say grocery budget I truly mean just that. This does not include any paper products or anything like that. We budget those types of items separately.

To simplify my meal planning, I mainly plan for dinners and just keep some basic items on hand for breakfasts and lunches. (For help with your meal planning/grocery shopping, check out this post and snag my free grocery list printable!)

Below is our menu for last week!

Note: I put an asterisk by items that we already had in the pantry or freezer. Obviously if you are starting completely from scratch you would have to spend a bit more than $50 to buy some of the basics.

I kept things simple by buying only two kinds of meat for our meals – turkey bacon (used for two meals) and a rotisserie chicken from Costco.

After we ate some of the chicken for one meal I took the rest off the bones to use for the white chili (using the chicken bones to make the broth, yum!) and the chicken fried rice. I can usually plan on getting at least 4 cups of chicken off the bones after our first meal – this time I actually got 5 1/2 cups! Costco’s rotisserie chickens are SUCH good value!

Below is a list with prices of all the groceries I bought. I’m a BIG fan of Aldi and do most of my shopping there. If you don’t have one near you I am so sorry, it seriously saves us so much money!
