August is here and for our family, that means returning to our crazy schedule of school and activities. We start school in two weeks and I am already trying to ease myself back into the schedule of morning routines to prepare for the brutal reality that is soon to come. In honor of this season in our lives, I thought this would be an excellent time to revisit menu planning for this month’s m challenge. A good menu plan really has been essential to our family over the years to help us save money, has helped us eat healthy, and it acts as the glue to our family in the evenings as we gather around the dinner table
We will be revisiting a few strategies I have highlighted over the years as well as new ones that I plan to implement this year in our home!
For our book selection this month, I have chosen, Plan It, Don’t Panic by Stephanie Langford ($4.99). This is my first time selecting a digital book, but I think this book will be an excellent inspiration to us to get our menu plans back on track! Here are some of the highlights of our book selection this month:
-Find the method of meal planning that will suit you and your family best
-Tweak and perfect your meal planning style with unique tips and strategies
-Make it easier to work around special/restrictive dietary needs
-Become a grocery-shopping ninja and never go to the store without a genius plan in place
-Learn how leftovers and batch cooking can become your best friends in the kitchen
-As well as how to store your recipes, easily find your favorites, plan for hectic times, and even what to do when you mess up…
-4 weeks of real, whole food meal plans, complete with breakfast/lunch/dinner and recipe links
-11 printable planning pages including 3 different weekly planners, 3 monthly planners, a seasonal menu planner, grocery shopping checklist, pantry and freezer inventories, and a freezer cooking/baking day planning page.
Stephanie also is the creator of Keeper of the Home where I am sure you will find tons of valuable information on her website as well about this very topic!
Don’t forget, we also have an amazing Home Management Binder FREE for you to download when you sign up for our newsletter. You can read more about what is included (including our menu planner printables for this month), over here! I look forward to another challenge month with you!
