Free January 2023 Meal Plan

Start off the New Year fresh by eating better and spending less money! Meal Planning is perfect to help you meet your New Years goals for eating more and healthier at home. January’s Meal Plan is filled with quick, easy and healthy(ish) meals that your kids will actually eat. A couple days ago, I shared a post on How To Stop Overspending On Groceries that included 12 meal planning tips for saving money on groceries and time at the grocery store. Use these tips with this months menu to help you save even more!

January 2023 Meal Plan

January’s Meal Plan is designed to feed a family of 4 dinners for around $350/month. It uses a link planning style to reuse one part of a meal in another meal. Be sure to take this into consideration when and if you’re changing things up. The version of January’s Meal Plan below has all of the recipes for the month to plan. Some of the recipes have links, and some don’t. I will be updating the links throughout the month with the recipes, or with my favorites from other sources. If you would like a PDF version of the recipe, leave a comment or shoot me an email at, and I’ll send it right over!

Notes About January’s Meal Plan

    • Shop for your produce weekly. Some ingredients like potatoes and onions will last throughout the month, so if you can get a deal on a big bag of potatoes or onions at the beginning of the month, take advantage of it.
    • Purchase boneless, skinless chicken unless otherwise noted.
    • Rotisserie Chickens are your best friend – these go on sale for about $5 each at your local grocery store. Usually a rotisserie chicken is cheaper than buying a fresh one, and it’s already cooked. One of the best ways you can save time and money in the kitchen.
    • Buy the biggest block of parmesan cheese you can find – I get mine at Costco. If you can’t find parmesan, Romano cheese makes the perfect substitute (actually it’s what I prefer).
    • Bagged Salad is probably going to be your best option to save money on salad right now. After comparing costs of ingredients for making a large salad, to a pre-mixed bag, you’re going to save money. These salads seem to last a week to 10 days, so stock up if they are on sale.
