A Step By Step Guide to Menu Planning

Have you ever wondered why you struggle to master meal planning?

I’ve had the same challenges, in fact I only discovered the many benefits of menu planning after having my third baby 11 years ago in my thirties. I didn’t even know menu planning was a thing before then. Instead I thought walking around the grocery store aimlessly putting things into my cart was the way to do it. Then I’d go home and I’d never have the right ingredients to prepare a meal that I felt like eating. So meals were primarily from the processed frozen foods section of the store because that’s how I thought you got dinner on the table fast and then of course no extra ingredients were required at all. That worked for awhile but definitely wasn’t great for my bank account or my waist line.

That’s why I’m so passionate about sharing my love of menu planning with the world now. It’s changed my life. That and the way I do laundry. Life changing for real! No joke! It can be hard though when you are first starting out and trying to get the hang of menu planning. Trust me, I know!

So I’m always looking for resources to share with you which is why I’m excited to introduce to you a menu planning resource that walks you through the menu planning process step by step. Erin Odom and Holly Dvorak have just released a brand-new eCourse called What’s 4 Dinner Challenge Meal Planning eCourse.

What's 4 Dinner Challenge eCourse to help you finally figure out menu planning!

I’ve gone through the course myself to make sure it’s something I would recommend to you and I liked it. In fact I can’t figure out which parts I liked more:

  • printables to help keep me organized?
  • meal planning hacks from other moms?
  • access to weekly menus that other moms post?
  • FB live coaching calls?
  • email challenges?

I think it might be the awesome printables which will totally save you time in the kitchen and the store, cut down your food waste, and save you some money. In any case, when you finish the course, you’ll have all the tools you need to help you get dinner on the table each night with much less stress and chaos.

Normally, this course sells for $47, but I know a way you can save over a third of the cost. For the next couple of days, you can grab this awesome menu planning resource for $29.97 instead.

Yep, and in addition to the menu planning eCourse you can also get 105 (seriously!) other resources for the same $29.97!

All these resources are inside The Ultimate Homemaking Bundle (affiliate link) that I mentioned to you the other day. If you’re looking for help to run your home more smoothly and with less stress, you’ll find eBooks and eCourses covering all sorts of topics from dating, motherhood, self-care, creativity, recipes, organizing and so much more.

    Wow- I just clicked on the laundry link out of curiosity and had to laugh out loud! I have always done laundry one kid at a time and have always washed in cold water! Learned this way from my mom- had no idea others did all that sorting! Also- my kids started being responsible for their own laundry at around ag 8- great thing to teach them for their own independence!

      Isn’t that funny? Yes so many families spend so much time sorting and sorting and sorting. So unnecessary and makes laundry such a chore. Most people think I’m crazy too until they try it for themselves lol. And yay for kid helpers!!
