Who doesn’t love Trader Joe’s – and who doesn’t love an easy meal plan? I wrote up this simple Trader Joe’s meal plan when my family and I were on a strict budget. I needed to keep my costs low – but I also wanted to be able to shop at Trader Joe’s. If you know anything about this favorite store – you know it’s hard to not buy EVERYTHING in the whole store! So – keep reading to see how my husband and I keep our Trader Joe’s grocery list under $50!

Also make sure you sign up for my FREE 20 week meal plan – and get it emailed to you every Thursday. This meal plan keeps your weekly grocery list to fewer than 20 ingredients – and sends you a list of 5 mix-and-match dinner recipes. Sign up for free here!

MomTip: The Dinner Daily is - hands-down - my favorite paid-for meal planner. You can ask all my family members – I’ve talked their ears off about this planner. It is only $4/month – and they send you customized meal plans that match the sales from your local grocery store. Also – they allow you to mix-and-match the 5 dinner recipes with any from their repository – so you never get a recipe you don’t like. This meal plan has given me so much sanity! Get 2 weeks for free to test it out.

Now on to the The Trader Joe’s Menu Plan!

This Trader Joe’s Menu Plan is pretty easy to use!  Just download the spreadsheet at the bottom of the post – and it gives you everything you need. 

Just as a caveat – these prices are likely to fluctuate. These were the prices listed at my local store, but there is a possibility that items are priced differently at your store. Please leave any comments if you find discrepancies in any of these items!
