Meal Planning / Menus for the Week

With two birthdays this month, one party, Mother's Day, driver's ed, and an unexpected washing machine repair, we came to the end of the money in the grocery envelope, with several days of the month left to go, and no available envelopes to "rob" from.  I love challenges like this!  Last weekend I spent considerable time preparing the food we did have for future meals, so as not to waste any.  Also, this makes dinner preparation go much more smoothly during the week if some of the steps have already been done.  I enlisted the children's help, and we got a lot accomplished!

Today, people are in tight budget to save more money in the future. Meal planning is one of the best ways to save money without sacrificing any health benefits. Me as a mom of two children and a housewife to my beloved husband, I practice a typical meal planning to save more money. This is one of the basics I need to learn since only one of us is working for the family. Aside from my own way of meal planning, I also rely on http://mealplans4thefamily.com/ to learn more ways in meal planning. I'll tell you, it's really effective.
