I am HORRIBLE at this!! Why? Because I can sit down and write out a plan for the month; but when it comes to that day...what if I don't want what's on that day's menu? I know just switch it with something else. Yes I can do that; but I don't.
I had an idea...starting today. I am going to write down everything I fix this month on a calender and then use it for next month. I really want to know if this will help when I go shopping by decreasing the number of times I have to go and the amount of stuff I have to buy. I know by others that it will; but I am actually excited to try it this time. So June will be my prep month and July will be my trial run. I also have a twist...my husband works crazy shifts so I have to plan around that too.
Any suggestions on this? Or advice?? Pleeease!!!
How do you guys prepare a grocery list??? How do you keep from cooking the same things over and over??? Do you ever get frustrated doing this or has it been a life saver for you???
