Somewhere along the way, I got out of the habit of planning meals in advance. I found myself asking ‘what’s for dinner?’ upon arrival home from my Uni commute and more often or not the answer involved quick cooking carbs. Lots of stuff purchased with the best intentions never made it onto a plate. Which, when I think about it, is probably the reason we’re both spending more on groceries and wasting more food.
I’m seeking to remedy this and make menu planning a priority once again. I figure if I get back in the habit now, when both the Boy and Hubby are still at school and work it will carry forward to next academic year when I really must do it. Do you find it hard to stick to a meal planner when your life gets hectic? I imagine it can’t just be me…
