I, like many others, menu plan. I don’t love doing it. I do it because I hate trying to figure out what to eat everyday and it helps us save money. I was planning for every two weeks. The two week plan would end and I’d put off making another and I’d have to scrounge for food. Which I can do but don’t love that either.
I decided to try something different for 2014. I’m going to plan a month at a time. I’ll shop every two weeks. I’m hoping that making that mid-month shopping list will be much easier since I already have the meals planned out. I’m planning on keeping the monthly lists and there is a very real possibility we’ll eat almost the same menu next year. That would be a dream…to just be able to copy the previous year’s menu and add a few new recipes through out the month. I really hope this works!
