Why Plan?

There are so many reasons to plan your menus ahead of time.  Whether you do it weekly or monthly, it can be a lifesaver.  Here’s a list of the reasons I do it:

Save Time

Less time in the kitchen will mean more time with your family.  When you plan your menu in advance you will NOT need to do any of the following:

  1. Waste time figuring out what to eat.
  2. Go on small grocery trips to buy the forgotten ingredient you need.
  3. Spend as much time cooking.  If everything is planned, then you can do some steps in advance and budget your time as needed.  No need for the mad rush to get your dish in the oven.

Make Healthier Choices

No need for take-out or junk food when you’ve already planned what you’re going to eat.

Save Money

If meals are planned and shopped for in advance, you won’t need to buy expensive convenience items or ingredients last minute.  You can also take advantage of sale items and incorporate them into your menu plan.

Stress Less

When your family comes home famished and must. eat. now. you won’t have to scramble around looking for something to serve.
