Monthly Plan and Shopping- Month 2
I meal planned more thoroughly this month using a template I got from the Money Saving Mom 4 week meal planner vertical. It doesn't have a lot of space to write but has breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack for everyday. I usually put the ingredient that I will need in my meal plan, but couldn't with this. It definitely made me realize that it really is ok to buy 4 loaves of bread and 3 dozen eggs because we really will use them. Also helped me to get a realistic picture of how much of each fruit and veggie I would need. I am also trying a few simple meals I found on www.myfrugalfunlife.com. I was referred to this blog by the lovely Amy Horst (responsible for breaking my paper towel addiction- go Amy!). I like this "frugal fun life" lady- she is a real mom. I think we would be friends. She makes snacks and freezes them...hmmm I need to do this so my Hubby doesn't go to DQ every time he needs a little sweetness. She also makes her own waffles and freezes them..I totally need that -we burn through waffles like nobodies business.
Well little man is napping and I have a Stella and Dot Trunk Show at 3:30pm so I better bust a move!
HAPPY FRIDAY FRIENDS!!
You all learn anything new and exciting from the blog world lately? I would love to hear about it!
