Do you menu plan?
I never did until I was home with my kids. I was all over the place planning ANYTHING when I was working.
BIG PROPS to all you working outside the home mamas!!! I say outside the home, because I know from experience commute time takes a CHUNK out of your life!! Here in the suburbs of DC, traffic is hectic to say the least! I don’t miss that AT ALL. At least if you are working at home you might have a bit of extra time to throw something in the crock pot or throw some marinade over chicken and stick it in the fridge quickly.
I thought I'd share our menu plan for June. We go with SIMPLE around here! I find just doing a simple, relatively quick plan helps us to 1) save money because we aren’t going to the grocery every few days for randomness and 2) ensures a bit of variety. I can say that with GREAT confidence because I haven’t been good about planning a menu since March and in the time between then and now our grocery bill was a bit higher AND we ate a lot of not only boring but also…shall we say “interesting” combinations.

A special shout out goes to Feeding My Temple & Eat Yourself Skinny for having fantastic blogs that helped me plan this month’s meals!!!
Oh and and FYI,,,you will also see tabs on the google doc for my ATTEMPT at a schedule! I am FAILING at this though. I will say i'm just NOT consistent and it's it's pretty much driving me nuts!
Anyone wanna do a guest post on sticking to a schedule SUCCESSFULLY???? Seriously, email me. I'd LOVE to have you!
