(These tips are sure to save you just that, trust me)
Plan out all meals for the week ahead
Ever hear the saying if you fail to plan, you plan to fail? Well if you have an idea of what you’re making you’re less likely to just grab whatever out of (h)anger or frustration of not knowing what to eat for dinner. Plus, by planning out your meals you will know exactly what you’ll need from the store, saving you not only time, but also money through strategic meal planning.
Organize shopping lists by layout of store
Once you know what items you need to make your ~planned~ meals, organize your grocery list in order of the store to be IN & OUT! This way, you won’t miss an item or get distracted by other unnecessary groceries, once again, saving you time and money.
Prepare fruits & veggies ahead of time
Save some time during the week and chop up your fruits and veggies as soon as you get back from the grocery store. This way you are ready to go come mealtime! Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week and thank yourself later.
Get to know your slow cooker
Slow cooker, instant pot, pressure cooker — throw all your ingredients together and forget about it for hours. These appliances do a great job with producing delicious meals that your family will think took hours of work to prepare (but joke’s on them).
Store individually portioned meals
Batch cook your meals, protein sources, or veggies and store in individual portions in the freezer. Pull containers out when ready to eat!
