Meal Planning Monday

Want to see what everyone else is eating ? Head over to Meal Planning Monday at Mrs M's blog !


  1. I love the meal plan idea, especially as you can then plan ahead and only buy what you need, rather then going into the shop with no idea what you want! Doing it that way I always seem to spend much more money lol

  2. I love this idea, what a great way to plan ahead, so you only buy what you need, rather than going to the shop with no idea what you want and spending a fortune! :)

    1. It cuts down on food waste too - now I've got into the routine,I can't believe I never used to do it!
