Do You Menu Plan? Would love for you to Share

Take Care


  1. Do you shop to your menu plan or do you menu plan to your shop? My wife usually shops against a menu plan but is beginning to menu plan against a shop - she thinks it is cheaper. I see merits in both....

    1. I shop to my menu plan. But I do stock pile, so if I see things (usually meat) at a reduced price then I can grab it and freeze for another week. I also check the specials in case there is something to stock up on.
      The problem I have with doing it the other way around is that if I find a great sale and buy the product I then have to be thinking on my feet as to what the ingredients I might need and make sure I get it. We have a strict food budget so I need to work within that. So if I forget an important ingredient and the budget has run out then it's just bad luck.
      The most important thing with menu planning though is to do what works for you.
