{31 days of easy organising solutions} – menu planning

Menu planning is undoubtedly one of the quickest and easiest ways to save time and money in your home.

If you don’t already do this, I want to encourage you to just try for a week  and see if you don’t love it.

One of the things a lot of people say is that menu planning prevents spontaneity.

I overcome that by doing my menu plan for the work week (M – F) and then on the weekends we finish everything else in the fridge 🙂

I also swop the days around if I don’t particularly feel like the Tuesday meal on a Tuesday.

The point is knowing that you have the ingredients for 5 meals and not having to waste time and energy making decisions.

Do you menu plan? How has it worked (or not worked) for you?

My book, Live Organised, will help you to find your organising style so you can put systems in place to get more organised.

  1. Menu planning has saved my sanity!!! I plan all meals except any baking stuff and leave that for spontaneity :-). It saves time, money, stress and also helps organizing healthy meals throughout the week. And like you, I leave aside a day for leftovers too!

      oh yes, you’ve got to have some baking spontaneity. I never plan baking – if I feel like eating something, I bake it

  2. I menu plan but I don’t get stressed if my meal plan for the week doesn’t happen exactly as I planned it. Actually, my plans seldom get followed exactly but it does help me have food on hand so I can actually prepare meals rather than us going out all the time.

      exactly – it’s more the knowing that you have food for those number of meals

        PS I don’t think in all the 6 years I’ve menu planned, I’ve ever followed my plan 100%
