This is the last week of the month and the time when I sit down and do my menu planning for the next month and put together a shopping list for my big stocking-up grocery trip I take at the beginning of the new month. I'm not a huge fan of being in the grocery store and I've found the less I'm...

I was looking at Savingdinner.com and thinking how nice it would be to have the menus and grocery lists done for me. I was specifically looking at the frugal menu e-books. Does anyone use these? Do you like the meals?
It gets so hard for me sometimes to come up with ideas for meals. It seems that we have the same old thing over and over. I like looking at meal plans that others have come up with and I have looked here before but had forgotten about it. Maybe it will give someone some new ideas:

I usually don't post here in this area but I'm just having a dilemma. Doc has put me on Lexapro 10 mg (I'm starting my 4th week) and I can't seem to focus on anything anymore. I do my shopping on Friday nights and prepare and I can't think of ANYTHING! DH and I are starting a new eating plan...

Preparing your weekly menus in advance takes a bit of time, but once you do it a couple of times, you’ll realize how much time you save, and how nice it is not to think about what to have for dinner each night after a hard day’s work. You’ll have everything you need for the meal instead of...
