Let’s be honest. Who exactly likes planning out meal time? Sure, we all like eating the food, but making a plan for how it’s going to get into the house and onto the table is a completely different matter.
Up until recently I found myself flying by the seat of my pants when it came to planning meals, especially dinner. On the good days I usually had a general idea about I was going to make, praying the whole time that I actually had all the ingredients in the pantry.
The not so good days would find me rummaging through the pantry and fridge praying that by some small miracle I could come up with a creative and nutritious meal for my family.
Honestly, there were days it came down to serving cereal for supper. Yes, I’m one of those mom’s too.
Over the years I have tried a lot of ways to map out and schedule meals. Printables , menu planners, list for recipes, list for shopping – but nothing every really worked well for me.
Then I found the one tool that has revolutionized how I plan meals and shop. I promise I am not being dramatic. It truly has changed how we plan our meals and shop. The biggest difference? It saves our family time and money.
No more wandering the isles of the store hoping I remember everything on my list (that is STILL stuck to the refrigerator door) and over-purchasing “just in case” I need it.
No more hitting the door at 5:00 and wondering what’s for dinner, who’s going to get it on the table and wondering if I will have all the ingredients for it.
Instead we now use this great tool called Plant To Eat *
I actually discovered Plant To Eat about a year ago but never implemented it. Then about a month ago I went back to take a look at it and decided it was time to jump on board.
Now that I have been using Plan To Eat for the past month I honestly wish I had jumped on board sooner. It has made that much difference for our family. It has simplified my meal planning and helps us make much better use of our time and resources along the way.
Some of the things I love about this meal planning tool:
So you may wonder – what does it cost? You can either do a monthly amount of $4.95 or 39.00 for a whole year. To me that is very do-able and well worth the cost for the time and money it saves me each month on my own grocery bill.
