Re: Meal Planning: What is your system?

I sit down on Sunday night with my 4 go-to cookbooks and make a meal plan. Then I go through each recipe and write down what I need to get at the store. After that I go through the ad to see what is on sale and might want to stock up on and add that to the list. Lastly I go through the fridge and pantry and add items to the list that I need. I find it helpful to write down things during the week that run out so I don't forget to add them to the list on Sunday. Then I shop on Monday. I go with a calculator because I also have a budget to stay under. I add things I want if there is money left over.

The meal plan goes up on the fridge for the week so dh knows what to expect and doesn't have to ask me.
