Hello my menu planning friends! Got your menu plan done for the week? I’m sure you do because if you are like me you’d be lost without one. However if you still struggle with getting it done for whatever reason I can understand. I’ve been there. I actually didn’t start menu planning until after my third child was born. I didn’t even know menu planning was a thing. I really just thought you went grocery shopping and randomly grabbed ingredients that you hoped could be made into something later. Of course that never happened because by the time dinner rolled around, I was too tired and hungry to try and figure it out. Can anyone relate?
That’s where menu planning saved my life. I now only buy the groceries I need for actual recipes I’ve picked ahead of time, I save money planning around sales, I can prep recipes earlier in the day when I’m less tired and I throw less food away. I saved my sanity no longer having to panic at 4:00 wondering what I was going to do while the kids melted down around me. Such a beautiful thing!
There is a great menu planning eBook in the Conquer Your Clutter bundle sale I’ve been telling you about (sale ends tonight by the way) that walks you through how the menu planning process works. It also includes many tips for making it as easy as possible to get dinner on the table each night. Another eBook that’s included in the bundle that you might like, especially if you are short on time, provides you with all you need to know about freezer cooking.
For more information on the bundle and the other 36 organizing products included, check it out HERE. Remember this bundle, at the 95% off price, goes away tonight at 11:59 pm EST.
