As most of you know, I think Meal Planning is pretty crucial if you are serious about cutting down your grocery bill. I once thought that menu planning would destroy my creativity in cooking. I thought that meal planning would ruin dinner.

However, after I started creating my menus I have learned otherwise. Menu planning has actually allowed my family to explore other options instead of our “usual” throw-together dinners.

Not only are our dinners better, but we are also saving money by not having to run to a drive-thru on nights that I didn’t have dinner ready. There are no more standing in the kitchen at 4:30PM wondering “What should I make for dinner?”

I feel so FREE on week’s that I have a menu ready to go. It has really taken so much of the stress out of dinner.

How to use Meal Planner:

  • Every Sunday you just sit down and make your weekly meal plan. It is so simple. This is also a good time to think about any meal prep you can do for the week.
  • Remember to keep your pantry and your freezer in mind when filling in your meals. Use that stockpile to help you save money that week.
  • Then in the bottom section for each day you will write in the food that you will need to buy in order to complete your meals.
  • It is that easy. Now you have your shopping list for your “need” items. I am sure that your “need” is probably a lot smaller than you thought. The savings will add up because you will always use what you have at home first.
  • Now head to the store, to buy those few items that you need. You will also save time at the store because you will know exactly what you need.

More tips:

  • Remember, just because you planned to have enchiladas on Wednesday doesn’t meant it is set in stone. This is to make sure that you have all the food to make a full week’s worth of foods. You can easily switch days if you need to.
  • Maybe you forgot that your kids have a T-ball game on Thursday, so you would rather have pizza that night instead of Friday night. The point of the form, is to help you decide what groceries you actually need that week instead of overpaying at the grocery store because you bought more than you actually needed.
