Let me tell you a story.
I never made a menu plan up until a few years ago. Typically, I would “plan” based on what sounded good that night. Being transparent as well, I like making lists, I don’t always follow them.
Hearing about menu plans, I knew I should give it a try. Why? There needed to be a way to cut back on my grocery budget. As our family grew, our cost at the grocery store grew. And grew. And grew. When it was just the two of us, I could stop by the store on the way home from work and pick up whatever I wanted.
Cannot do that now, as I would over spend my grocery budget. Major wrong since I would rather spend our hard earned dollars on vacation or a pony. 😉
