Why Should I Meal Plan?

If you haven’t tried planning your meals ahead of time, this is going to be a game-changer for you! Here’s why I swear by meal planning:

  • Time Saver: No more 4:00 PM panic about dinner. With a meal plan, you know exactly what’s on the menu, what you need, and how long it takes to cook.
  • Money Saver: Prepare to be amazed – meal planning works wonders for your wallet. When you organize your shopping list for the week, then you’ll easily spot opportunities to buy in bulk and creatively repurpose leftovers for future meals. It’s a clever approach that keeps more money in your pocket.
  • Bye-Bye Takeout: When meals are planned and groceries are stocked, you’re less likely to hit the drive-thru. That means more savings and healthier eating. Win-win!

Each menu plan has a grocery list that is easy to print and convenient for taking with while grocery shopping. Simply cross off or check mark each grocery item as you go!

Side Ideas

Want to add some sides to your dinner? Here are a few that go great with this weeks meals!

Meal Planning with Leftovers

I only meal plan Monday-Friday because we sometimes have plans over the weekend or I have leftovers that we can have to finish off the week! If you do have leftovers, make sure to store them properly in an airtight container in your fridge.
