To be completely honest, I have done terrible this week at planning and grocery shopping. We way overspent this week because I could never get it together enough to get a list and head to the store. Being out of town for Blissdom and then sick with the flu has thrown me for a loop, and I can’t seem to get caught up. I changed all that today by heading to the store with a planned grocery list and pulling together a meal plan we will actually use!
How about you? What do you do on those weeks that you just can’t seem to get a plan together or even get to the store? As I told you last week, that is why I am so happy for my freezer stockpile. The weeks that I am unprepared, the freezer has my back!
The weather was 64 degrees here yesterday, so that is why you are seeing the grill meals. We love grilling, so if it is nice, we are getting started early.
