    We use cash for our grocery budget as that is also the only way we have been able to put a hard limit on how much we spend.

    As far as eating the same 7 meals… you may be onto something there.

      Cash is IMO the easiest way to limit your spending. There’s just something about handing over bills vs a card.
      And we’ve been doing the 7 meals for over a year now and it’s been great!😀 Thanks for the comment.

  2. This past year I got into food prepping big time! (We are talking 30-40 freezer meals at a time). I was a little overboard at first, then learned what my family and I would like to eat from frozen, vs. what we should prep Sunday for the week. I’m big on leftovers, perfectly happy eating the same meal 7 days in a row. My family = not so much. So, my lunches are taken care of eating the same thing every day, and then we try and make an effort to make a night meal that will serve as their lunch the next day, and go from there. Crock pot is frequently used!

      That’s great. Meal planning always seemed to be too much of a hassle for my wife and I. Crock pot meals are great though. One of our 7 meals is a crock pot meal.
      Thanks for stopping by. 😎

  3. Dear Chris,

    We often eat meals that resemble the meals from the week before but I’ve never actually thought of PLANNING it that way. I always just have certain staples on hand so that I can make our favourite meals when dinner time comes. Lately, I’ve found that deciding what to have for dinner takes up a fair amount of my mental brain power during the day and it’s weighing on me.

    Since reading this post, I’m going to pick our 5 favourite meals (allowing two days for leftovers). Then, depending on our schedule, I’m going to look at our calendar and plan our meals a week early. Then, I know what’s for dinner before I even wake up in the morning.

    Thanks for the idea.

    Besos Sarah.

      Great! Chalk one up in “I don’t have to worry about that” column. It’s worked famously for us.
      Thanks for the comment and for stopping by. 😁
