As a working mom, wife, and a bunch of other things I call myself, I don’t have the time to stand looking in my refrigerator every night for inspiration on what to make for dinner. Additionally, my husband does most of dinnertime cooking even though I do the grocery shopping and meal planning. Without a system, we would both be extremely frustrated and end up eating out more than necessary.
A good meal plan starts before you go to the grocery store. It starts with The Plan (in my house it has the extremely creative title of Meals for Next Week). I always arrange my grocery delivery on the weekends, so I need to make my grocery order mid-week to ensure I get a timeslot that works with my schedule (for more benefits on grocery delivery services, see my post – The Financial, Health, and Time Saving Perks to Grocery Delivery). So I need a plan, to make this grocery list.
