My wife Jenny and I have been married for 18 years.  Every one of those 18 years we have always made menu and schedule for the week before making a shopping list.  Jenny's parents did it before her. It just makes sense.

MY TOP REASONS FOR MAKING MENU & SHOPPING LIST

  • If you make a menu every week, you don't have think about what you are making for dinner every night.
  • If you make a menu, you know exactly what you need to get at the grocery store, so you save money.
  • You don't forget to pick up any essential items at the store.
  • If you stick to your list, you don't by stuff you don't need.
  • We include our schedule on our shopping list, so if we don't need to make a meal or we are on our own, that is on there too.
