Everyone wants to save time. Everyone wants to save money. This habit can do just that for you and your family.
Every Sunday evening, I sit down with my computer and notebook and make out my menus for the week ahead. I decide beforehand what I will cook for dinner each night. Using my computer, I research quick, healthy meal options and then write down the ingredients I will need at the grocery store. This habit has saved me both time and money.
I didn’t used to be a planner. Going to the grocery store to restock the fridge was more of an afterthought then something I planned for. When I did, I always bought things I didn’t need and didn’t end up using. But now that I’ve made this a habit I waste less and have a plan for the week.
I’d like to thank my mother who taught me the importance of planning ahead. What are some of the things you do to save time and money?
