Let’s get real!
Do you do the 5 o’clock scramble?
You know when you realize that you need to feed the little people in your house.
You run into the kitchen to figure out what dinner is going to be.
Then you realize you don’t have anything to cook, so you order take out.
You spend more money than you should, feel stressed, and overwhelmed.
One very simple system you can put in place and practice is meal planning.
And when I say meal planning I am not talking about cooking a month’s worth of meals at one time, oh no.
Meal planning can be simple and a good habit.
