Meal Planning

I have so many people ask how I plan out our monthly meals and go grocery shopping. So here it is, the answer to all of your questions:

1. I first make a list of 30 + meals for the month.
2. Then I write down everything that I need for those meals.
3. Next, I check out the pantry and freezer at home and cross off everything that we have at home. This usually ends up leaving me about 1/2 of the items that I need for the month.
4. Then I check the sales for each week and only buy what is on sale each week + items for my stockpile (usually items that are $0.50 are cheaper).

I will be posting soon a meal list for next month to give you an idea on how to start this process. If you have any questions, please let me know.
