Grocery & Menu Plan {Week 3 & 4}

Tuesday, April 7, 2015

This is one board that I couldn't live without: my grocery list and menu plan board. I asked my dear husband to put it up as soon as we move to our new place.

On the top, I wrote down the grocery places and what to buy from there. I write down what to buy as soon as I realized we ran out of that item that way I won't forget. Before I go grocery shopping, I would take a picture of the board with my phone then I am off to the market with my "grocery list".

At the bottom, I wrote down our menu plan/ what to cook right after we went home from the market that way I know that we already have all the ingredients at hands to cook certain meals.

I prefer listing down weekly menu instead of daily menu because this allow some flexibility for our family members to choose what to eat as long as it's in the list.

My Week 3 & 4 Grocery Shopping & Menu Plan:
