On a Meal Planning Mission

Monday is the start of the All You Grocery Challenge. I’m playing, are you?

One of the keys to staying under the budget for this game ($25/person/week) is to have a meal plan and stick to it. In fact, I think I need a meal plan and then some. Just in case Plan A backfires on me. That means I’m planning extra meals for the week, just in case. I’m also mentally preparing to make a lot of things from scratch over the next month — unless the coupons and deals are extra sweet.

    How fun! What a great idea!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
