    Hey, y'all! In an effort to get my food expenses under control, I created a two-week meal planner that includes a grocery list. I just wanted to share it with everyone, in case someone could get some use out of it. Attached is mine for the next two weeks, and a blank one that can be printed...

    My DH is starting his first semester of college next month. He is resigning from his full time job and will be picking up part time work as he is able.

    I went to the local farmers market today which turned out to be much more abundant than I had anticipated. I mostly went to see what I could get there, so I didn't have a list or a plan. I did buy some honey since I'm almost out, but otherwise just picked some produce that looked good to take...

    I finally took the plunge and planned out all of our meals for this month. I was really against this before because I felt like I was limiting myself somehow. But I finally realized that I have a full pantry and freezer and that I have to start using that food before it goes to waste. I love...

    is how much money it saves us. Wow. I spent the last two months being lazy about planning meals. We homeschool our kids and DH works from home, so it's a three meal a day plan for us.

    My DH will be commuting on Sunday afternoons to Edmonton and will not be coming home until Friday nights.
