Hi, I’m Kelly Alberts and I live in the Philadelphia suburbs with my husband, Joel. I work with middle school students during the day and follow cool people on their blogs in my free time. I love reading, cooking, writing, and traveling with my husband. Read more of my ramblings at Philadelphia Filly.
Meal planning is one of my favorite ways to stick to a budget. I find a ton of joy in thinking through what we have in our kitchen, listing what I need, and purchasing food to make creative, healthy meals.
My husband Joel and I have always been conscientious of our money, but because I lost my job this past June, I’ve recently become even more aware (and even more frugal!). Planning 6-7 meals a week takes time and effort, but is truly rewarding. Not only are our meals full of good stuff, they’re much less expensive than eating out regularly!
