Floral Meal Planning Printable
If you’re not used to meal planning, you may need to get into the habit of writing it all down before you head to the store. I like to base our meals on what is on sale at the store when I get there. But if you know what sales are happening ahead of time, you could do this beforehand.
This means that you don’t deviate from your plan and you can create a budget and stick to it. Because when you shop on a whim, you will waste money and forget the stuff you really need. How many times have you gone to the store for paper towels and come out $100 later with stuff you’re not sure you really need.
This can definitely happen if you shop on an empty stomach. I’ve had a ton of impulse purchases where I’ve regretted them afterward like that quick salad or frozen dinner that did not turn out the way I wanted it to.
Had I just grabbed an apple beforehand, I’m sure I could have calmed my hungry shopper demons.
Make a plan, write down all of the groceries that you need, then stick to it. You won’t forget a thing and your budget will thank you.
Is meal planning hard to do?
It’s actually not..but for some, it’s a process to learn. In the beginning, you might feel as though you want to give up, but dno’t.
The thing about meal planning is the more that you do it, the better you’re going to get. And just like anything in life, the more that you do something, the more that it turns into a habit as well.
What might feel difficult at first will prove to be worth it later on down the road. This is because meal planning can help free up time and money, too.
