Ok, so you are thinking, "But Sherri, I don't have the time to plan menus". I didn't think I would either! It's getting easier. I worked up a master list of easy, good meals we love. I use that for ideas, plus I am finding tons of tasty meals off blogs I follow and input from the TONS of menus posted weekly at I'm an Organizing Junkie. I would estimate it takes me about 30 minutes. I bookmark recipes I like, that are easy and I want to work into my plan. Working up my menu from Sunday to Saturday. Usually I plan next weeks menu on Friday evening or Saturday morning while sipping coffee. That way I can shop sometime over the weekend. I'm NOT a fan of grocery shopping after working all day. This is JUST what works for me. If you have time saving ideas and money saving tips, Please leave me a comment.
