Two Week Meal Plan and a Little About HOW I Meal Plan

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!
