Hello fellow budgetters,
I've been very slack with my meal planning lately, so have decided to get back into it.  I'm also sick of eating the same foods over and over.  Plus, in 7 weeks time our income will drop and our expenses will increase enormously (see byline!), so I really need to get my act into gear.

I did a search for "meal planning" and budget recipes threads last night, and came up with quite a few.  I thought I'd post them all here in case others were also after some ideas.  I haven't read through them all yet but here's a list of what the search came up with:

Cheapest meal?

Does anyone have any very cheap meal ideas?

Feeding family of 6 for $60?

Healthy main meals for under $1 a serve challenge

How do I cut down on cost of meals?
