Happy New Year! I didn't make any firm resolutions for 2011 because I'm on a continuous improvement schedule and I'm always trying to live better, whether it's January 1st or April 19th. I believe people change and improve when they are ready and we should all be looking for ways to make our lives better. (Plus, I'm a food blogger and enthusiastic home cook, so the typical diet resolutions are pretty tough for me!) Based on discussions with friends and family I know finances are on everyone's minds and this reader question deals with meal planning, which can have a significant impact on your budget.
Q: I know that you like to plan out your meals for the week. Would you consider sharing those lists with your readers on a weekly basis? Would help make meal planning a bit easier for me to bite off your list.
A: Absolutely! Now, I'm not perfect and I stray from our meal plan
sometimes. I'll start sharing our meal plan and our food budgeting
strategies in a series of short posts and you can take whatever tips
work for you. Plus, I'd love to have suggestions from readers about
what works for them.
I'm starting a new category of blog posts under the "Life" category. These posts will be tagged as "food budgeting" and I'd like to share tips on grocery shopping, dining out, meal planning, and any other strategies related to keeping our meal expenses under control.
