What do you make at meal time? Do you plan your meals ahead of time? There are people that plan their meals a week at a time or a month at a time. If I am lucky I will plan my supper meals for one week. Sometimes I do not always cook the meal that is for a certain day but is still in that week. It is posted on a meal planning notepad with each day on it which is on the refrigerator. I try to plan the meals when I am the get the groceries based on what is on sale and what coupons I can use. I plan my meals on certain days. Like if there is going to be leftovers it should be on a day before my husband has to work. That way leftovers can go with him to work for his lunch. There are also meals that you can use the leftovers of that meal for other recipes. This is a very frugal idea of saving money with food. Planning meals is a great idea so then it saves time and the stress of thinking what I am cooking today for supper. My son is notorious for asking that question each day. I get so tired of hearing that question as well.
It can be so hard sometimes finding new things to make for supper. Or it can be hard to find meals that happen to be frugal for family as well. I love checking in with Meal Planning Maven on Facebook some nights. She asks the question what people are having for supper that night. Some will share links to the recipes and some just post what they are having. I love to see what others are making as it can give me ideas for meal time too. Check out her page if you get a chance.
