Meal planning can save you the hassle of having to figure out each day what you will be making for dinner.
Not only will this save you time it will also save you money. Instead of wandering aimlessly through the store, you will know exactly what you are getting.
If two weeks is too ambitious start with just one week. You know what works best for you. In our family, planning just three of four meals for dinner is enough.
Grab a piece of notebook paper and ask every family member what their favorite meals are.
Once you’ve got your meal plan for the week look through your pantry, fridge, and freezer to see what you need and what you do not need.
