It seems like every week I find a great reason for having a really simple menu. Currently, it’s that we’re still in recovery mode from our wonderful month-long house guests, and I’m sure that next week, there will be another reason. Such is this life stage. Such is the reason why I blog about simplicity.

Here is my family’s dinner plans this week. Do you menu plan in advance? I highly encourage you to do so – it helps 5 p.m. go much more smoothly. After my current series on Home Management Notebooks, I’m going to (finally) wrap up my series on Personal Finance 101, and then dive into a short series on menu planning. Stay tuned!

Head to Organizing Junkie for more menu plans for perusal…

    A friend of mine laminated four weeks of menus that included a shopping list for those items. [She didn’t like menu planning.] During that phase of her life, she would just rotate the four weeks of ideas. She could always substitute when she felt like it — but it wasn’t a drudge sitting down weekly to prepare her menu. And if you only eat it once or twice a month, you are miles ahead of the average bear. Katy
