I could write a whole blog dedicated to menu planning; the hows, whys and why nots! Forget coupons (gasp), put the deals aside and think about how much you eat out and what it’s doing to your pocketbook! I’ve been asked, interviewed and quoted on all the same thing..food matters and eating at home matters more!
If you don’t do coupons, could care less about snagging a deal that was live for 5 minutes (these are ridiculous anyways) just focus on cutting your eating out. You will save over $2,000 a year by just eating at home twice a week! It doesn’t come easy though. Planning, shopping, cooking are work…but it is SO worth it and guaranteed your family will love eating your tasty treats!
