As a mother of 5 it is hard to find time to plan meals and go to the grocery store. So I made a list of all the meals that I fix and then made a master grocery list from my list of meals. I saved my list on the computer so it can easily be printed off and adjusted as needed. I go on one big shopping trip every other month and buy enough to fix each meal twice (once each month). Before I go shopping I print off my list, look through my pantry and freezers to see what I may still have and cross it off my list. I also print off my menu and cross off the meals as I fix them. This has saved me tons off time and money.
