When I started couponing I was amazed at how much money I could save on our grocery budget and I really thought I had it going on and had lowered expenses as much as possible. Then I was introduced to meal planning and was shocked at how much more it saves us each month because there is so much less waste since we’re planning our meals around things we already have on hand and not buying ingredients we don’t need. Honestly though, the best result that has come from planning our meals for the week in advance is the greatly reduced stress level. We no longer have to start worrying about what’s for supper right before picking up the kids from school, and stress over what might thaw out in time.
Well now there’s help for those of us who would really like to benefit from a weekly meal plan but don’t really know where to start, or don’t have the time to set one up. Or maybe you’re like me and just need some help adding variety to the menu! Toni Spilsbury, author of The Organized Cook, can provide you with weekly meal plans that will help save you valuable time and money while providing your family with healthy meals and reducing your stress level.
