2. I don’t waste money having to eat out as a last minute solution
3. I can ignore my children and point to the fridge when they ask “What are we eating?”because the menu is always posted on the fridge
4. I can cook ahead and freeze extra portions
5. I can make an accurate shopping list and not end up with wasted food and money
6. I can make healthier meals by planning ahead
7. I know in advance what is coming up, which allows me to prep one meal while making another 8. I can have dinner organized and on the table at the same time each night
9. I can allow others to help cook by picking something from the menu to work on
10. I have one less thing to worry about during the week

  1. All of these are such good reasons for women to make meal plans. It does take practice if one has never tried it, but I think the benefit to the family is almost immeasurable. I know I’m also showing a good example of thrift to my children….I hope they will follow my example in their own homes one day!
