In the past, 5 pm was a horrible time at my house. When my boys were little, I was just in survival mode and not very organized so I would always wonder what to make for dinner each night. Then I decided to get organized and make a weekly menu. Having a weekly menu has helped out in so many ways around our house.
- Less stress and worrying each afternoon about what to make for dinner.
- Less going out to eat so we save money and eat healthier dinners at home.
- Less going back and forth to the grocery store since I shop once a week (with the exception of maybe picking up more milk or fresh produce during the week)
- Less questions from my boys since they can just look at the menu board and know what to expect each night for dinner.
Here is a picture of this weeks' menus. You can see it on my fridge along side our very full monthly calendar, birthday invitations, sports schedules and magnetic to do and shopping lists.
