Meal Planning Monday #1



Happy New Year! Are you ready for the start of 2015? My new year’s resolution is to help make my family life a little easier. This means I’m going to be planning our meals on a weekly basis to help reduce the cost of groceries, the amount of waste, and to provide better meals for the family. I started doing this a few weeks ago and found that we would save (on average) about $50-$75 per week on groceries, eliminated the amount of food we were just throwing away, and we were eating better meals and less fast food. Sure, it takes some time out of the day to plan but it only takes me about 20 minutes to decide on what we’ll eat. I’m not super strict about it either. I use this plan as a guideline for what meals we’ll eat that week, not necessarily on that day. For instance, the dinner I have written down for Monday night may not be prepared and eaten until Thursday night. I will also state, this is in NO WAY a cooking blog. Most of my recipes come from other bloggers or websites because I’m not always the best cook. (Just ask my husband!) I won’t be posting the recipes, but feel free to ask about them in the comments and I’ll let you know where I got my recipe from and/or I’ll post the recipe. 🙂 Happy Meal Planning Monday!!
