I would love to know, do you meal plan? I mentioned in my 5 tips to make meal planning achievable a few days ago it’s one of my sanity savers which helps me to feel organised knowing that I have all I need to cook dinner on hand and not be wondering what to cook for dinner and having to duck out to the shops last minute. Plus it also helps me keep on top of the family budget and reduce grocery costs. Thank you to reader Emma for sharing her families meal plan below.
MEAL PLANNING TIP
Meals don’t need to be extravagant -keep your meals simple, you don’t have to make several gourmet dinners every night. It’s some of these super simple meals that the family really like best. One of our favourite meals is meat, mashed potato and vegetables with BBQ sausages or chicken schnitzels from Woolworths Deli.
