Buy Prepped Ingredients

You know that I’m a DIY girl at heart. I know that homemade is better and often cheaper. I also know that buying convenience items can help you out if that’s the season you’re in.

Let me tell you, with my back in as bad of shape as it’s in, filling the freezer with TV dinners doesn’t sound like a bad idea!

I also know that there’s some middle ground, too. That middle ground would include things like:

  • baby greens
  • boxed broth
  • rotisserie chicken
  • pre-prepped veggie trays
  • store-baked bread
  • pre-shredded cheese

These items are more ingredients than they are meals. And they can help you save time in the kitchen. Can you make your own vegetable broth? Absolutely. Is there a time to buy it already made. Yep, there sure is.

Buying pre-prepped items can make your dinner preparations go by more quickly. If you can make them yourself in advance, that works as well.

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."
