Works for me Wednesday
Monthly Meal Planning works for me. Not to say that I stick by this completely and never veer off the course but his has saved me lots of time and stress with meal planning. At the beginning of the month I sit and plan out the next month's dinner plan. Then I go to the grocery store for all the things that I know I will need for the dinners. Obviously not the fresh items; just the frozen or canned goods. I go the store once a week for things like milk, fruit and veggies and anything that I may have forgotten but I try to keep it to a minimum. My family (the boys especially) like knowing what is for dinner early on in the day. Planning meals has taken the stress out of making dinner. Although sometimes we veer off course and choose something from somewhere else in the monthly plan, go out, or change all together. This basic plan has also helped our family (me) stay on budget too.
I use THIS monthly calendar to plan out the meals. I wish I could show you this months plan, but I have no idea how to do than. I tried. I failed. Sorry. Hopefully you can imagine.
Head over to We are THAT family for more WFMW
