I have recently decided that this summer shall be dubbed “The Summer to Get Organized” (I was going to call it “The Summer to Get My Act Together”, but “The Summer to Get Organized” has a more positive ring, don’t you think?).
What’s in store to get organized? Our house. Our stuff. My systems for organizing said stuff in said house. My systems for cleaning/laundry/etc. Schedules. Communication. Etc. Etc. Etc.
Oh yes, and the fun task of food planning/shopping/etc.
Bottom line: I need to come up with a system for planning/shopping that is somewhat simple *and* cost-effective. As much as it pains me to say it, having my groceries delivered to my door, while handy, is proving *not* to be the most cost-effective option each week.I definitely need to tighten up the ship in that area…but I don’t know how.
So I’m wondering…What Do YOU Do?
Do you plan meal menus? If so, how far in advance (a week? 2 weeks? a month?)
How do you handle your grocery shopping (how often to you go; do you get your dry goods at one store & produce/perishables at another, etc?).
Have you found any good, healthy (read: safe), reasonably-priced options for organic food (produce, etc.?)
Do you utilize coupons?
You get the picture.
Now I turn it over to you, and I BEG you for your answers encourage you to tell me true:
Just What Do YOU Do?!
