We filed our tax returns this week, yay! It’s a chore I love checking off my to do list as D-O-N-E! I do enjoy making lists. They keep me on track, and way more efficient than I would be otherwise. It also frees up my mental space, so I don’t exhaust myself trying to remember everything I need to. Meal planning is another one of those tools that makes my life easier each week. By planning and shopping ahead of time, that 4-6pm window of time goes so much more smoothly! If you’re in need of some planning tools, I have several printables to help.
This one is a grocery list and menu planner in one, and is my favorite. I love having my shopping list categorized by section of the grocery.
This style lets you plan all three meals and a snack for 7 days.
Now for some scrumptious dinner ideas and recipes:
Western Omelette Frittata from New South Charm
Slow Cooker Garlic Balsamic Pork from Jonesin’ for Taste
Slow Cooker Baked Bean and Sausage Stew from Budget Girl
