Okay, learned a big lesson this week, but I knew I would. I didn’t meal plan last week, because I took a little break. Big Mistake. I way overspent and I was at the grocery way too much. Lesson learned. This week I am getting a great plan in place and doing one to two grocery trips. How about you? Ever learned that lesson the hard way? I would love to hear what you learned.
Also, let me know, what content would you like to see me provide around meal planning? What areas do you feel like you need the most help and direction?
