MENU planning for busy bee Moms!
Ah… plannng… meals!
Do you gals do it? I like the IDEA of it… but I only have a husband to really try it out on at the moment :) We did have a niece stay with us a week last Summer and it was fun to try out meal planning on her — it let my creative side come out!
Here are a few thoughts on making it not so daunting perhaps...
— plan a week ahead! set aside a Sunday night or Saturday afternoon to get the groceries, plan, prep and make! It can be simple easy lunches, frozen meals you can reheat through the week… anything you like
— saves money! this is obvious :)
— saves time! doing it in one chunk can really save so much time during the week!
— saves SANITY! I seriously think it would cut down on stress, confusion, commotion and issues during the week if you knew what was happening when!
— leftovers… this always leaves room for something added leftover :)
— teaches kiddos importance of priorities and organizing — this is kind of obvious, but valuable in the long run!
Do you all plan meals ahead? Of any sort? Do you have a schedule or do things as they come? I would love to hear!
