I feel like there should be a meal planning for dummy’s handbook. I have tried and while I am totally a rock star at making lists, the planning and executing actual meals never really happens. Moving to a new state and starting new jobs has put a serious hurt on our finances. We had to revisit the amount we were spending weekly for food and the number was crazy. I love to cook why are we spending so much on things I could make. I know its because after work I can say I will cook but depending on how my day goes my will in the kitchen goes right out the window. But I have decided that if can just plan one day to get all of the prep and cooking completed we can totally have yummy meals for the week. So I am planning a big shop today and a big cook. Bring on the granola bars, breakfast wraps, cut up veggies…etc.
