My Monthly Meal Plan

Life got crazy busy (in a good way) after having baby boy #5 and I failed to keep up with my menu planning for awhile. Not only did it drive me nuts trying to figure out what to make for dinner at the last minute, but I felt so much more stress and we started eating more unhealthy because I didn't have as much time to plan or prepare our meals anymore. I'm so done with last minute dinner planning. It's time to break out my menu plan again!

I finally took the time to plan out our menus for the whole month so I could do my shopping trip to many different stores (to get the best prices available) over a two day period. It was fun, but very exhausting. This is the first time I have ever done something like that. We will see at the months end if it was worth doing it or just plan for 2 weeks like I previously did. I'm thinking it will all be worth it since our weeks just keep getting busier and busier with 5 boys. The older they get, the more activities keep coming! SO, here it goes......
