We just spent a few days camping with G-ma in her motor home so I planned the menu carefully, taking everything we'd need and not much more. It actually worked out pretty well and made me think about meal planning for real at home. I compost too much produce as I try to buy everything we might possibly need on our weekly shopping trips. I can't get to the grocery store often so I tend to over do it and then waste happens. It's not good.
I'm going to try a little menu planning and see how it goes. I'll make sure good snacks are included, that's where people tend to fall off the wagon I think. Meandering over to the corner store for a little sugary something is an easy habit to fall into.
I do this , I write a menu for the week ahead, and buy in the food I will need for it, I only buy so make 'treats' and once they are gone they are gone for the week.
I make sure the fruit bowl is full, and only buy in fresh produce through the week, milk bread and such like, I save a lot of money now, as before I shopped blindly lol just throwing stuff in the shopping trolley
