How I Plan Our Menus
Menu-planning is something I highly recommend for anyone and everyone who wants to save money. Not only does it greatly reduce or even eliminate the need for quick stops at the drive-thru or last-minute trips to the grocery store, it also makes life much easier, organized, and sane--at least for us!

Some just make sure and always keep their pantry stocked with the necessary items to make their favorite meals.
