Mike always tells me “If you fail to plan, then you plan to fail”. He’s right. Planning is a very important part of running a successful household. I don’t know about you, but I despise meal planning. I would rather just have someone make me a grocery list and be done with it.
I actually don’t mind the “grocery shopping” once the list is in order, but it has been driving me crazy week after week trying to get the list together.
I don’t have a good process, I don’t go to the store the same day, I don’t plan the same amount of meals each time. So I’ve been searching around and I found this useful website that refers to something called a Household Notebook. I really like the concept and I think I am going to make one, and use it.
I’ll let you know how it goes. Hopefully meal planning gets easier.
I love the idea of a monthly meal planner to plan way in advance so I don’t have to put too much thought into after it’s created. I will be happy to “just do the shopping”.
How do you plan meals? What is your step-by-step plan?
