Ready to get started? Jump to our four handy templates below. Organize your grocery list, sort out everything that's in your freezer, stock your kitchen like a pro and plan your meals for the week!
(Tip: Laminate your meal planner and use a dry erase marker to write in your meal plan. This will save printing a new one each week.)
Go to the grocery store with purpose, stick to your list, save money and decrease food waste. With a list, trips become faster and you buy only what you need. Fact: University of Pennsylvania research shows people who can avoid impulse spending can save up to 23% on their grocery bills!
When was the last time you did a freezer inventory? Probably not recently! Without a doubt, there is food lurking in the back corners that has become freezer burnt and sadly ready for the garbage. You should do a freezer inventory every six months to stay on top of what goes in and out of your freezer.
Having a well-stocked kitchen helps busy people whip together meals without a
trip to the grocery store. This leads to less stress while enjoying more home-cooked
meals. When you always have certain items available, making simple meals is
easy. Bread in the freezer and eggs in the fridge make a quick 10-minute fried
egg sandwich. Now that’s faster than take-out!
Have you ever noticed how a little time spent can reap BIG benefits later? Meal preparation (or 'meal prep') is the action of preparing foods or components of meals in advance. This includes tasks like cutting vegetables, cooking rice and preparing proteins in advance. Creating a meal plan for the week eliminates the hassle of figuring out what to cook each day. Quit wasting time and plan ahead!
