Menu Plan January 2013

As we set off into a new year, I want to refocus on menu planning. Having  a plan saves money, time and stress. I am less likely to grab pizza on my way home when I have a meal planned out and the items purchased. I will stick to once a week grocery shopping which helps reduce extra spending by grabbing extras every time I go to the store.

I have a plan for dinners. Breakast in our house during the week is always something quick. I do cook a family breakfast on the weekeends but always have the items on hand for that unless its something special. The kids eat lunches at school and I will pack leftovers, soup or salads to work for my lunches.

I did make out a 3 meal plan for now until the first though. With all 5 of us home for 4 days straight meal planning is a MUST.
