Weekly Menu Planning

A delicious-looking meal

Image via Wikipedia

Have you ever came home from a long day at work, kids nagging and you have to get dinner ready? You look in the cupboard and refrigerator and you have no idea what to do. I have been in this situation many times in the past, but I had to take control of the situation. I was spending more money per week, whether it was buying ingredients I needed at the last-minute or buying take out. I was spending more than $500.00 per month because I wasn’t planning  what to do for the week.

Living in a city where basically time is money, you have to move at a fast pace. Every bit of time is precious and a little planning can go a long way. First, take out some time on the weekend, or before the start of your work week and plan out what you are going to cook that week. Write down for each day the meals you are going to do each day. Also, it is helpful if you write out the ingredients you are going to need for each meal. Next confirm you have everything you need for all the meals, if not make a list of the items you need to buy to complete the meals. You can begin to prepare the meals on the weekend also to save more time during the week. Whether its cutting up vegetables or seasoning meats, you can do these things and place them in freezer bags, label the bags with the day you are going to use them and place them in the freezer.

The less you have to do when you come home from work the more relaxing your evening will be. Since I don’t have to rush to get things done when I get home, I am able to spend more time with my girls. Real quality time because I am stress free and the girls really appreciate this. It took me a while to get used to having a plan and sticking to it. I still have moments of weakness and order out, but it’s not like before where more than $500.00 was being spent monthly!

THE BENEFITS OF A PRICE BOOK

Last week I wrote about the benefits of having a stockpile. The benefits were not only in weekly savings when I shopped, but I was also fully stocked and ready for Hurricane Irene. In order to get the benefits of huge savings at the checkout, you must know when an item is at its rock bottom price. To know what the rock bottom price is at your stores, you have to compile a price book. I compiled more than one because each store has different prices and they tend to have different items on sale at different times. You do not have to be as detailed when starting off, its best to work with two (2) grocery stores and (2) pharmacies until you get the hang of it.

A price book takes several weeks to assemble, buts its benefits are invaluable. The book contains a chart of the weekly sales prices for your stores. Every week you go shopping, take your notebook with you and jot down the price of an item you buy frequently. Over time, you will see a pattern developing, showing when the item is at its lowest price. Knowing when an item is going to go on sale helps you prepare to stock up. Knowing sales cycles, clearance sales, special promotions, and combining them with coupons will help you score loads of groceries for little out of pocket, if any at all.

If you are new to couponing, you might not be aware of when items are at their rock bottom prices. It takes time to develop a working knowledge of when to stock up on an item. Last we spoke about price books and their benefits. Now we are going to use those prices to analyze what the lowest price was for an item over time. Every store differs a little, so it is best you perform your own analysis after a couple of weeks of price entries into your price book.

BENEFITS OF A STOCKPILE

Hotcouponworld Member Mi5zonsn1 gets her groce...

How’s is everyone doing in light of the storm? How are your preparations coming along. Since I have been stockpiling for some time now, my preparations are very minimal. When I first began to stockpile, my mom was wondering where were we going to store all that food. I prepared a pantry in my laundry as to keep everything out of sight. I received jeers for looking “retarded” with all that stored food and household items.

How foolish do I look now??? I have everything I need for the hurricane and I have to buy is milk and bread. How sweet is that, while everyone else is doing big shopping trips expecting the worse, I’m in the express checkout lane with less than 10 items!!! Having a stockpile enables you to be prepared when you least expect it as well as cutting down on your grocery bill. The benefits of having a stockpile are numerous, so why don’t you start your stockpile today. I did, and now I can relax with the kiddies while we await the arrival of Irene.

STAY SAFE EVERYONE AND HAPPY SHOPPING:-)

WHY USE COUPONS

For many years I’ve had my weekly shopping circulars delivered to my house but, like many, I would discard them without glancing at anything inside the little package. The same went for the Sunday newspaper, I would discard all the inserts, since to me it was all a waste of time, paper and money. As the years went by and I came to be more in control of the family finances, I had to find ways to save money and still be able to feed my family. It was getting harder and harder to feed everyone and pay all the bills which kept rising, while our pay remained the same with no prospect of increasing. I began researching methods on how to save money, live “ghetto fabulous” and still be able to enjoy everything this city has to offer. As I drew up our family budget, I noticed that I was spending around $1,000.00 on groceries and household items for a family of 5 every month. YIKES!!!  I almost fell out of my chair as this outrageous number looked back at me; I was hoping this was an error and the correct, lower number would appear at any moment.

This was a wakeup call for me and I knew I had to find ways to save money on groceries and household items. I was amazed to see their were communities of people that dedicated themselves to blogging on how to use coupons effectively in cutting down spending budgets in half. Knowing that I can get $300.00 worth of groceries for $100 or less got me involved in couponing immediately. The notions of stockpiling at first were daunting but slowly as my stockpile grew, I understood the concept.

Coupons are available for just about everything and can be found everywhere. When learned how to use correctly, coupons can be used to lower the price of an item 50 – 75%, maybe even more! The ultimate goal of a couponer is to use a coupon to purchase an item at rock bottom prices. You don’t have to wait for “Black Friday” sales to get a good deal. More than likely you can get the same sale price or even better throughout the year using coupons without having to stand in line at 2AM.

It’s only been a couple of months, but I have been able to cut down my grocery and household budget down to $450.00 a month and I’m still trying to reduce that number even more.  I know I’m setting the bar real high but with a little penny pinching and planning it can be done.

Please feel free to post your comments on how you started couponing or if you plan to start and need help on how to begin.
