Re: Weekly Plan
My mum used to do this as a way of budgeting for the food shopping and i have started doing it too. i write a menu each week so i buy only what i need from the supermarket. as i used to go on the way home from work, i'd be hungry and end up back home with biscuits, chocolate, crisps and other nonsense i didn't go in for!! I've also started doing 2 weeks worth of food shopping and having it delivered - which is bliss. The only thing i now go to the supermarket for on the way home is fresh veg.
I don't stick rigidly to the menu in that monday = egg and chips, tuesday = pasta, repeat to fade...... but i have 4-5 meals a week set. I also plan out a couple of week sin advance when i know i'll be out for the evening to avoid having food in which then goes off and needs throwing away.
It's definitely working as i'm spending a lot less in the supermarket now.
