The second step in getting organised is planning your meals.This will allow you to shop more thoroughly and be prepared. Not having to make a decision about what to cook for dinner at 5pm reduces the risk of desperately needing that pasta sauce when every shop, other than the supermarket is closed.
Find a time which suits you before you do your weekly shop and sit down with a cuppa. Check the calendar and what your upcoming schedule looks like, it doesn’t make sense to plan a roast on the night when the kids have late afternoon activities.
Once you have a list of meals for the week you can write your
shopping list (we’ll make a shopping list next).
