As I’m sure you’ve heard so many times before, “If you want to save money on groceries, make a meal plan.” I can tell you for a fact, from my experience, that that is absolutely true.
Depending on what we’re having, I usually plan for at the very least one leftovers night per week. Even with eating leftovers for lunch, we usually have enough to get us through a dinner or two as well. I plan 3 or 4 of the recipes we’ve tried and loved, or recipes I’m 90% positive we will love. Then I like to throw in the 2 or 3 new recipes to try. Some weeks we have planned dinners at family’s houses or events that we know we’re going to be eating out. Meal planning helps us so much in this case because we dont buy a bunch of groceries that wont get eaten because we know exactly how many meals we need to plan.
