Menu planning is a great way to save money because it gives you a plan. And so, you know that when you go to the grocery store and you buy these items, you are actually going to have a plan for using them. And so, this keeps you from succumbing to that pizza or going through the fast food lane or getting take out. In addition, if you can plan your menu based upon what is on sale at the store and what you have on hand, you will significantly lower your grocery bill. And one way that I like to is to go to allrecipes.com and I type in what ingredients I have on hand and it will generate a long list of all these recipes that I can make just based upon what I have on hand. And so, that is a great way to get menu items without even having to go to the store.
