Menu Planning… Does It Save You Money?
Do you plan out your menu (primarily dinner, I mean) or just pick things up when you’re already in the store? If you plan, is it for a week at time…. or biweekly? Or maybe monthly? I’ve never had much luck with monthly and although I did biweekly for a while, I’ve found that weekly works better for me.
Do you think planning a menu is a money saver? I’m thinking if you buy too much, it just spills over into meals for the next week… but my problem would be in not buying enough and having to go to the store again mid-week which would probably result in spending more money in the long-run.
