I see what we are eating for the week and it gives me time to plan out the rest of my meals. I then add my menu items to my grocery list:
Other things I add to my list are items that I am going to need and want for the week. This has really been beneficial when we go grocery shopping as it helps us stay on track. This might seem like alot of work but it isn't really at all and once you get used to it it's nothing. Planning is key to being successful to anything!
