Meal planning is kind of a boring chore.  So why not get more of it done in one sitting?

We both know that getting started is probably the hardest part of planning your menu.

So if you can do it fewer times per month, that’s a win!  That’s why I do my planning for two weeks at a time.

(Let’s face it…the thought of monthly meal planning is a chore.  But weekly meal planning feels like you just got done and now you have to start again?!  Two weeks is perfect.)

Also, who needs the pressure of making a particular meal on a certain day of the week?

Uh-uh.  In my meal planning world, I make a list of meals and pick the one that suits my mood on that day.
