  1. Yum! I might have to steal some of those meal ideas!

    1. Glad you found some inspiration! Thanks for stopping by!!

  2. I am truly envious of your ability to meal plan so thoroughly. It is a goal of mine.

    1. Awww thank you! I've been meal planning since I got married at 18 (14 years ago), it was a necessity I be organized enough to plan so thoroughly otherwise it was not good for the budget! ;) If you look under my meal plans tab I have a couple of posts where I explain my process. I've found it's actually easier because I can prep & even make stuff ahead on Sunday & get it all done in one day then that way all I have to do is heat up my breakfasts and lunches & throw the kiddo's stuff in her lunchbox and she can even heat up her own breakfast and has since she was in 1st grade! The first few times will feel overwhelming, but after a bit you get into a groove ;)

  3. Wow! I've tried meal planning, but I get off track and stop. I wish I could keep to it. I did however make different flavored meatballs and homemade larabars ahead time for the kiddos' school lunches :) I'm quite proud of myself for that!
