Menu Planning update

As most of you know we are in the process of moving again. We moved into our current house temporarily while we sold ours and purchased another. So needless to say with two moves in 2 months and it being summer menu planning has kinda gone out the window. We should be in our new home by the end of the month and I can not wait! I am ready to get back to my routines and menu planning is one of those routines.

One of my goals this summer (yes I have summer goals…its an OCD thing) was to have on paper 30 meals. Well, I have been keeping a list of meals that we like and when I sat down and counted it up and I have 37 meals! That’s more than a month and with leftovers and ordering out on occasion and those rare nights when I am the only one home I think I have 2 months worth of meals with no rotations. Between menu planning and stockpiling my groceries I think that I will really see a huge difference in my food bill.

I’ve been doing the coupons and stockpiling and some menu planning but I think having 6-8 weeks worth of meals is now going to drop my bill even lower. I am ready to get moved and get back to a normal life. Or at least my version of normal.

What about you? Are you a menu planner or a dinner on the fly mom? Or do you fall somewhere in between?  What are your biggest dinner challenges? What are you doing to help with those challenges?

WFM Wednesday 7/11/12

Today’s Works For Me Wednesday is all about grocery shopping. I took the time and made a pre-filled out list and broke it into sections. I have a space to mark down the amount of each item we need and I put a C next to the item if I have a coupon. I keep a highligher in the kitchen so the kids and husband can just highlight what we need or what they want. I also have a  blank space to write in items that I may need just on occasion or if I am trying a new recipe and need a rare item. I like having this already pre-printed….it makes it easier to read rather than my kids horrible spelling. (Or my husband’s…lol) And I can update the list as needed too. Below is my master grocery list. I put mine in excel form. Do you use a pre-made form or write it down or do you have it in your smart phone or ipad?

Summer Schedules

    This summer is the first summer in six years that my oldest hasn’t been in summer camp. This means I have both girls home ALL DAY LONG. Which means my house is a constant disaster in the making. I try, really I do. I get up in the morning and straighten up and pick up throughout the day and at night before bed but I swear I am just spinning my wheels.

    Now I have tried so many things. Flylady, lists, schedules, yelling…wait…I can’t admit to yelling on a blog can I? Anyway, nothing seems to work. Also depending on what I do during the day with the girls sometimes I am to tired to pick up in the evening, which just sets myself up for disaster tomorrow.

    Whats a mom to do?

    Seriously? What should I do?

    Right now I am thinking I should just let go and let God for the state of my house this summer.

    Thoughts? What do you do in the summer time if all of your children are at home?
