Need some quick dinner ideas on a busy weeknight that aren’t chicken nuggets or mac and cheese? Here are 7 options that look absolutely delicious. They will definitely go on my next Budget Menu Meal Planner.

7 Easy Weeknight Dinners

I don’t know about you but it’s really hard for me to plan ahead. I try. I can stick to a menu plan for about a week. Then life gets in the way again. Have you tried one of those meal delivery services? It’s cool because they do all the planning for you. You don’t have to worry about forgetting a few ingredients in the store, because you receive everything pre-measured and ready to go. Plus it is fun to have the food delivered. Everyone likes getting packages right? You DO have to cook it yourself, but you know it will be healthy and delicious. And they give you instructions.

You can try HelloFresh with this special link save $30 on your first box.

The best products for you and your baby.

Baby monitor

With a baby monitor, you can use your time flexibly, sleep peacefully at night and still know at all times that your baby is doing well.

Nursing pillow

A good breastfeeding pillow has several advantages, because it helps you not only to breastfeed, but also to fall asleep and is also suitable as a nest.

Diaper bags

A diaper bag offers you a lot of storage space, so that you have everything you need for your baby on the go - from the changing pad to the bottle.


A pucksack gives your baby the feeling of security, like in the womb, and thus supports a peaceful and restful sleep.

Bicycle trailer

Bicycle trailers can be used in combination with a baby seat shortly after birth. They are not only safer than child seats but also more comfortable.


A playpen can be very practical in everyday life! Which model is suitable for your needs, you can read in my guide.

Baby bed

The first bed accompanies your child for years. Fortunately, there are beds that grow with your child. I have made for you on the search for the best baby beds.


A stroller is a worthwhile purchase. But there are the most diverse models on the market. Find out which is the right one.

Radiant heater

Radiant heaters provide your child with the necessary warmth when changing diapers or after bathing.

Extra bed

Side beds are very practical and offer both mother and baby a lot of advantages, because for babies, especially in the first months of life, it is reassuring to be able to sleep next to their parents.
