Why meal plan?

Meal planning saves us a tonne of money (because we only buy what we need, we “shop the pantry first” and we aim for no waste)

Meal planning saves my sanity (you know … the dreaded “What’s for dinner” question)

Meal planning frees up my time.  I know what I need to do each day & I often plan at least 1 bulk meal so we can have leftovers in the freezer.  Sometimes, I will even cook ahead of time, particularly if I know I have a busy week ahead.  It’s easier to avoid the Drive-Thru if you know you have dinner ready at home!

What’s on the menu at your house?
