I am so sorry my posts have been so random. Since I shared my last menu plan with you waaaayyy back in December 2012 so much has happened!
We celebrated Christmas, rang in the new year and somewhat unexpectedly moved house all within just a few short weeks!
As if the holidays aren’t crazy busy enough without the whole moving house thing . . . we then had to wait 2 entire weeks to have our internet re-connected! say what?! Who knew it would take so long? I sure didn’t.
Anyways, I’m back now and ready to work.
How was your Christmas and New year celebrations?
I know many people make a new years resolution to eat better, save money etc and I honestly find that menu planning helps with reaching both of those goals. I aim to please people
Seriously, if you plan your menu you know what you need to buy at the store to prepare your weekly meals which means you are less likely to –
1 – Buy extra food you don’t need
2 – order pizza or pick up thai food on your way home from work, school, running to kids to dance class/basketball practise etc
3 – all of the above.
I also noticed since I started really menu planning and taking a list to the store with me we were spending less on our weekly groceries.
Like at least $50 less a week!
Are you thinking what I’m thinking? a monthly treat . . . maybe a mani-pedi and/or massage with the money saved? Or maybe some new shoes? Or jeans? Or all of the above?!
