Menu Planning & Grocery Shopping

Carol - posted on 02/04/2009 ( 1 mom has responded )




My husband gets paid once a month, so I try to do the bulk of our grocery shopping just after he gets paid. I only go back to the store for perishables like milk, eggs, produce, etc. When I do, I make a list and ONLY get what's on the list.

I also do "make-ahead meals -- I freeze them for those nights that I REALLY don't feel like cooking and would swing through McDonald's or somewhere if i DIDN'T have them!!

It's amazing how looking at a fast food restaurant can be a "solution" to making a meal for our families. Really, for me it comes down to not taking the time to take out some frozen meat in the morning so it has time to defrost for when I make a meal later that day. It's amazing how much money I can save by just doing a little planning. Afterall, how long does it take to open a freezer and pull out some frozen meat?? :)
