randomcreativity said… Looks neat, I will have to get the free version. I love it when I have meals planned, since it means I will have all of the ingredients! I usually plan my meals around whatever is on sale 🙂
Mariel said…Meal planning is really the best! It really makes cooking so much easier because you are not standing in the kitchen stressing over what to make for dinner an hour later. We too have a “notebook” ours is more a piece of paper. On the weeks we actually do it my week seem so much easier. This website seems like a wonderful way to stay organized and encouraged. I’m heading over to sign up now!
Emily Williams said…OK as an engineer-type who is married to an engineer-type, we absolutely have been doing meal planning JUST like how you described (even down to the little details of making a list of some of our favorite meals in a little notebook). So, yes, every week we keep a running grocery list to add things like staples/toiletries/home care products that we’ve just run out of, and then at the end of the week do the meal planning and add those ingredients to the list. It’s amazing! One thing we’ve learned, though, it to NOT plan every single day. We often leave 1 or 2 evenings totally unplanned to account for those nights when we simply may not feel like making what was on the list…it gives us room to shuffle stuff around if need be. However, right now we do all of this planning manually, so it would be quite fun to do it on this site and have it on my iphone!
She’s crafty, and she’s just my type. said…Oh I need this so badly!
