Planning the grocery store visit

I have found that when I take a few minutes to sit down and plan the meals I want to make for the upcoming visit prior to the grocery store visit, I spend less money on non essentials at the store and I have less wasted food. Planning the meals in advance also helps me to see which ingredients i can get multiple use from.

I have been doing this to in order to curb our spending and waste.  I printed out a blank calendar and plan out meals for the upcoming week, and then make my shopping list.  Being able to see what will stretch 2-3 meals also helps.

A site I found that helps when I run out of ideas or am tired of the same old thing is .  They have a section called Menu Plan Monday where people submit what they are having for the week, and some have links to the recipes.

I also like using the site to get new recipes and ideas.
