Why am I planning my menu? Menu planning is both practical and frugal. When you do all of the cooking for your family, you need to stay sane. If you’ve planned your menu ahead, there’s no wondering what’s for dinner at 4:00. Menu planning also helps me keep track of my grocery budget by forcing me to plan meals around what’s already in my pantry/refrigerator and what’s on sale. I do the grocery shopping on Fridays and my menu reflects that. For almost 400 menu plans and meal ideas, check out I’m an Organizing Junkie.
