How do you stay organized during the week? These two menu and weekly planners will help you get your get your week on track!
Start with your weekly planner. Write down all of your family comings and goings, appointments, and to-do’s for the week. Keeping everything clear and outlined of what needs to take place during your week will help you to stay on task and organized.
Once you have your week planned out, you can schedule your meal plan for the week. It’s helpful to know your schedule before you start your menu planning, as that will allow you to pick meals that will work for those busy nights and plan more difficult recipes for the nights you won’t be running around in the evening.
I like to plan crockpot recipes for the nights I know I’m going to be really busy, it let’s me take care of dinner during the day when I have the time to do so, rather than trying to squeeze it in at night.
After you have filled in your menu for the week, assess what things you’ll need from the grocery store and plan just ONE trip to the store to fill out your supply with the items you need. The shopping list and planning just one trip will save you time and money!
