New Grocery Shopping Approach

I feel like we are wasting way to much food.  To get a better handle on our food/grocery needs and what we are actually using, I am going to start shopping once a week at Aldi and once a week at Acme.  I'll make my meal plan weekly instead of bi-weekly.

This was the plan for this week:
Monday - Cheeseburgers or hot dogs  - Ate the cheeseburgers and some hotdogs, had to throw buns away though
Tuesday - Gravitt's Goulash (I'm going to try to make this in the crock pot) - Made this and have plenty of leftovers for lunch
Wednesday - Orange Chicken over Brown Rice (In crock pot) - Ended up eating leftovers, hotdogs and pasta with home made sauce that our neighbour gave use.
Thursday - Left Overs - Think I'll try to remember to make the orange chicken tomorrow
Friday - Pasta with meat sauce from the freezer - I think this will change to meatloaf since we already had pasta this week.

Now for next week:
Sat. Sept. 13 - Homemade Macaroni and Cheese
Sunday Sept. 14 - Chicken Stir-Fry
Monday Sept. 15 - Crock Pot Mexican Chicken Soup
Tuesday Sept. 16 - Leftovers
Wednesday Sept. 17 - Turkey burgers
Thursday Sept. 18 - Beefy Baked Beans over Rice
Friday Sept. 19 - Chicken Noodle Casserole
