Eliminate the 5 pm Dinner Chaos
How many nights a week do you end up eating out because you don’t know what to make for dinner?
Here's a few tips to help you meal plan...
- Write down what you will have for dinner each night and create a grocery list as you plan each meal. This will give you a realistic grocery list of things you actually need for the week.
- Post the plan on the fridge or another place everyone can see it. Having the list in a public place will eliminate the "What's for dinner?" question.
- Take advantage of online shopping and curbside pickup to keep your food budget on track and end impulse or “hangry” buys at the grocery store.
- Don't be afraid to adjust the plan. If you get home from work later then expected and Tuesday's meal is faster than Monday's switch them. Make your plan work for you.
Having a meal plan will help eliminate the 5 pm chaos of what’s for dinner and save you money each month!
