I did it! I have never gone that long without being online in a very long time. I enjoyed a much needed break with the family in a cozy little cabin on a lake. No phones (not even cell phones) and no computer and it was absolutely wonderful and relaxing. Let’s just say I did a lot of sleeping and a lot of reading….5 books and 12 magazines to be exact. I’d almost forgotten how much I enjoy reading.
The beautiful lake we were on.
Now here we are home and I’m trying to get all my ducks in a row. Most importantly on the list is menu planning for this week. I will never put that off because the benefits of it far out weigh the amount of work it takes.
One other thing I want to get back to doing is maintaining a price book, a place to track the lowest price on the foods I buy. Most things I can remember off the top of my head but I have trouble knowing what is a good price for the various types and cuts of meat. I’ve purchased a new notebook and hope to start filling it in this week using the current sale flyers. I write in pencil and over time as I find a lower price for the same item it’s easy enough to update my notebook with the new price.
I’d be interested to know how many of you use a price book and whether or not you find it helpful.
Thanks again to Laura for handling MPM in my absence, much appreciated!
