top ten reasons i meal plan

And, ten reasons why you should meal plan too!!
(in no particular order)

10. It makes my Sunday afternoon grocery store trips so quick and easy.

9. I can come home from school late and still get a great meal on the table by 6:00.

8. I don't have to think when I come home what we will have for dinner.

7. I save money because I rarely have to make random trips to the grocery store to pick up a couple of things at full price.

6. We don't go out to eat much because I always have something planned.

5. We never end up eating crap for dinner because I always have something planned.

4. It helps me try new recipes.

3. It's one less thing I have to think about during the week.

2. I actually think it's fun!!

1. It gives me something to blog about each Monday, and now that I've added a MckLinky it gives me some great new ideas!!

Join in on the fun next week for Meal Planning Monday!!

I tried to meal plan last week and it went GREAT! I did it again this week and only spent $55 at the grocery store. WOOHOO :)
My future MIL gave me a meal plan cookbook that has 12 weeks of mealplans. I'm trying to get into the routine, so after the Wedding it's just natural for me :)
