Kait recently left a comment on an older post with her new monthly planning system. It’s such a great idea that I wanted to be sure everybody else had a chance to read it as well:
I just came up with something that totally changes the game for my meal planning! I have a full-time job, so planning is essential
for me, otherwise…hello $5 hot’n ready from Little Caesar’s.
I like to shop once a month for all non-perishable stuff and then once weekly at the farmer’s market for fresh things.
Today I created stores in Plan to Eat and titled them by week for the next month. Then I selected each week to display in the meal planner tab and drug all the produce items to the appropriate “store” that I had created.
Wah to the la…one shopping list for an entire month with produce listed weekly! I nearly cried…
I don’t know about you, buy I can’t wait to give this a try for August!
Do you plan your menu weekly or monthly? Have you ever tried shopping just one time and picking up the remaining perishables as needed?
