Weekly meal planning
There are many different ways to plan your meals. How you plan yours depends on how much time you want to spend now to save yourself time later.
I plan my meals once a week. Because I have limited refrigerator/freezer space and a small family of three to feed, this plan seems to work best for me. I only go to the grocery store once a week. When I'm getting ready to go to the store, I sit down and starting planning my menu for the next week.
