Organized Home Challenge Healthy Meal Planning & Creating Grocery Shopping List

Standard

Welcome to my second week of the Organized Home Challenge.  I’m eager to see how this challenge will go.  I’ve been wanting to do this for a while, but since Mike does the shopping, it’s a little trickier to make sure this all goes to plan, but we’ll try it out 🙂

Step 1:  How often will you make a mean plan?I’ve decided to do this on a weekly basis.  This way we only go shopping once a week.  I can look through all the flyers once, and work this into our “budget”.  Yeah, that’s our first problem – we don’t have a grocery budget 😦  Mike is in charge of the finances, but I’m sure he’d love it if I’d be proactive about contributing to cutting the fat on our expenses 🙂

Step 2:  Which meals and snacks will you plan for?I’m going to start by planning for each meal and snack.  That may change when summer vacation and homeschool begins, but for now, all meals are being planned.

Step 3:  Decide if and what kind of assistance you’ll need with meal planningI’m going to just do it on my own because I know what my family’s likes and dislikes, and how to hide what they don’t like :)I am however using the Pantry Inventory List and Freezer Inventory Form.
