We are both absolutely passionate about meal planning.
For me, knowing what to make for dinner each night can be quite stressful: I have two small children and work part time. By the time I get home after doing the school and nursery pick ups, I’m tired, the kids are tired, and cooking is the last thing I want to do, let alone stressing about what to cook.
Meal planning is one of my key tools in The Organised Life Project. I know that meal planning is the only way to make sure you’re making healthy, economical choices. It’s the only way to make sure you have variety in your meals. We use up our leftovers, and plan carefully to make sure we’re not left with half a packet of feta cheese that hangs around for ages in the fridge.
For me, meal planning is win-win: it takes away the stress, it saves us money and it means we don’t throw things away. I’ve learned to plan quick, easy meals for the days I’m working, and to make the most of the days I have longer to cook.
But I know we all need a bit of inspiration and motivation when it comes to meal planning. That’s why we’ve launched The Meal Planning Linky. We’ll share our posts about meal planning, and you can link yours up too. Seeing others’ meal plans – and sharing our own – not only keeps us accountable but also will inspire us.
