My Monday Ramblings #2

Hi guys!
Last time I chatted with you I mentioned my new grocery budget for the new year. Well it's been 6 weeks of grocery shopping and meal planning for me, and I'm happy to say it's been working out great!

What do you think of menu planning? Do you make one, not make one, sometimes use one?
When I'm planning my menu for the week I check my freezer and cupboards to see what I have that I don't have to buy or what I need to use before items expire. This helps me use what I have and saves me on my grocery budget because I won't buy things I already have. Win-win right?! I think so! :)
I'd have to say I've been enjoying menu planning and it totally works for my family!
Happy Monday!
