It’s time for another meal planning Monday! I have done my meal planning in many different ways over the years. These days I’m finding it easiest to plan 2 weeks at a time. It’s the best mix of fewer trips to the store (which always saves me money) and less work than monthly planning.
As usual, crock pot meals are ruling our days. But we are also enjoying more grill foods now, too. It’s nice to have less hustle in our days now that school is out!
If you’re too busy to do much meal planning in this season of your life, I hope that my plan helps to give you some options you can use.
If you want more choices than I’ve given you, I recommend a meal planning service like Relish.
Relish is a company that provides meal plans and grocery shopping lists that you can customize to meet your family’s needs. You can scale menus to feed your own family size. (That’s especially great for us medium sized families!)
I also love that they include ideas for freezer meals. And that it’s mobile friendly, which means you won’t forget the list at home!
This service is available starting at just $5 per month. And Medium Sized Family readers can get an extra 10% off by using this link here.
Try it for a month or two and see if it’s a good fit for your family. I’m willing to bet that you’ll save far more than $5 per month by using this service!
