So, I did it. For a while. On & off, but wasn't really consistent with it. Well, about a month ago I decided it was time again. I needed to plan, so that I could better budget grocery planning, etc. So I started planning 2 weeks at a time. Then, my friend Julie & I were talking one day and she mentioned that she would be interested in doing a menu.
So, we started. We get together every 2 weeks for about 1-2 hours and plan 2 weeks worth of menus. This way, we know our schedule. We know what days we need to have easy meals planned etc. I am so thankful for this. I am thankful for the friendship of Julie to be willing to do this with me. I am thankful to Sarah for helping me originate this. As difficult as it is sometimes, I am so thankful to have this menu for when I am planning my budget, for when I am planning my grocery trips and for when I am looking at my week. What a blessing.
Last week, Julie & I got together & planned 4 weeks out. Simply because of the holiday season. We knew that life would get crazy & it would be easier to have 4 weeks planned out. Perfect!!!!
So, today, I am thankful for Meal planning. Lame, you say? I say, NO way! Try it!!! It really is great!!!
