I did a live video in my group on Facebook (Be Unapologetically Yourself), but not many people watched! So, I decided to just write about how I meal plan.
A couple of things makes this super easy: 1) Notes on my phone, and 2) My favorite cookbooks. I’m not a fan of Pinterest most of the time (it can be overwhelming to me), but I do use it on occasion.
I keep a running grocery list in the notes of my phone, then I add to it as I make a list of meals.
I make a list of meals in the notes of my phone as I go through recipe books.
It all comes together when I use my list to order groceries for Walmart Pick Up! I love that I know how much I am spending before I spend it! I keep our grocery budget between $400-500 for the month!
After I make a list of meals, I transfer that onto this blog and organize it based on the dates. Then I transfer it to a document, print it, and hang it in our kitchen to follow!
