Then last week happened. Since I had been gone and no food shopping had been done, we didn't have a lot to work with. Money had been spent on other things and while we still had some, I didn't want to spend more than we needed to on food. So I made a meal plan to maximize food usage and saving money. It worked GREAT! I decided on what meals we wanted and then got what we needed just for those recipes. During the week we decided what we wanted to eat when. The end result...we enjoyed our meals AND saved money AND had the flexibility. SCORE! The Man is now on board.
I've started a master list of recipes/meals we enjoy so I can pull from that. I'm excited because I think this will help us enjoy those meals that I forget about and it will be easier to try new recipes. We're also looking to save some money and I know this will help!
Do you meal plan?
What are some of your favorite meals/recipes?
Any tips for a newbie meal planner?
