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?
