Meal Planning

Meal Plan and Home Organizers

Soooo… I’m back on the meal planning and organizing my chores thing.  I waver on this especially since my life was consumed by “South Pacific” for 2 months.
I used to plan each day of the week, but sometimes it doesn’t work out.  First, you want to use up a piece of produce that might be going bad.  Second, you feel like eating something else instead.  Or third, you don’t have time to make that item, but you do have time for another.  That is why each category is listed and not the dates.  Since I get my produce box on Tuesdays and the grocery store ad on Mondays, I do most of the planning on Wednesday by default.

I found quite a few home check lists through Money Saving Mom.  She has a 4 weeks to a More Organized Home list.  There  are several meal planners.  There is also a chore checklist that is pretty generic enough to work for me.

Here is my Freezer Meal Planner that I created to help plan and fix freezer meals or snacks.

      We have to have a balance too between eating late. It is really hard when hubby gets home late especially when he says he is going to be home on time and then doesn’t arrive for 4 more hours.
