Plan Your Meals

I find that my life to be sooo much easier when I plan a little bit!  I keep a 3 ring binder to organize my life a little bit!  It includes my calendars, my budgets and financial planning, my menu planning, and my coupons!  I keep this with me or at least close by just about all the time. 
I use a meal planner and grocery shopping list every single week.  We may not always stick to it 100% but it helps me to eat healthier and spend less money on eating out and junk food!  I guess I should call it more of a guide!  Usually on Friday, I try and fill out my meal plan for the next week so I can go grocery shopping on the weekend.  It lays out everything for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks so I don't have to buy a bunch of food at the grocery that I know I won't eat and helps to see where I might be needing to eat lighter one meal to allow room for a bigger meal I have planned.  I then transfer my meals to my grocery shopping list so I can lay out all the ingredients that I need and make my trip to the store a little more efficient.

Simple and Efficient!
