monthly menu

for those who know me, know that i am really into meal planning. big time. i feel like it cuts down on a lot of stress.

marital and financial.

hubby knows what is for supper weeks a head and can tell me if he likes or dislikes what i have planned.

i can plan shopping trips according to my menu instead of heading to the store several times a week. i usually do one big monthly trip and then weekly little trips for perishables.

the biggest help is on the budget. i plan the monthly menu according to first what is in the freezer, second what is in the pantry and third what is on sale.

which is exactly what this site recommends. they also have a calendar you can print off for the next year.

give it a try!
