Momversation Monday is one I can really relate to! So here it is! Karen Walrond of chookooloonks ask how far in advance do you plan your meals?
FIRST please watch the video, or you will miss some great moments. Alice Bradley of finslippy and I are very much alike. A year? Who does that? She's right though! I feel bad my house is a case for "Clean Sweep" (OK it's not that bad!), or that I'm not the world's greatest organizer, budgeter, house wife (I know what some people think!). So why add another "F" to my mommy report card?
I've managed to plan a week or two in advance, but a year? That's planning even I, the minister of planning, has never thought to accomplish.
But what if this lady Karen was talking about who is the topic of this Momversation had it right? I mean, she cut her yearly grocery bill in half, putting food on the table for a family of 6. She's not asking the most famous question that everyone has asked in their house" What's for dinner?". She buys in bulk to save money, stockpiles when items go on sale, sounds good to my wallet!
Could I do it? I don't know....
Here's a challenge: I'm going to menu plan for the month of March post how much it cost me. Join me if you want and let me know what your results are!
What about you? Is menu planning for the year a great idea or is an unattainable goal?
