In each weekly section of your Hustle Daily Planner, you will find an area for a weekly grocery list and budget. Also, on each individual day, there is an area designated for meal planning and/or eating out. These sections are specifically designed to help keep you on track with your food planning and your budget.
Now usually you are pulling your hair out every night looking frantically around the kitchen for something to shove into mouths so they stop saying “What’s for dinner?” Am I right?? Not any more!!! Now you are a planner!!! Let’s play out a few days in a meal plan. According to your planner, Monday is a regular day with no special activities. You can plan a normal weeknight meal. Tuesday evening is soccer practice and you know you will need something pretty quick so you plan a crock pot meal that will be ready when you walk in the door.
The idea behind all of this is to match your schedule with your meal plan. On a night you have late meetings or practice, do not plan a meal requiring lots of prep or cooking time. It is too stressful. Work smarter, not harder, ladies.
Food planning also helps tremendously with the budget. If you stop at the grocery store three times a week, you are impulse buying way more than you should. If you meal plan for the week and buy what is needed for all of your meals, I guarantee you will spend less. Put your Hustle Daily Planner to work organizing your meals and saving your sanity! You can even add a Fancy Pants Clear Catch All to your planner for coupons to save even more. Happy Fitness And Happy planning!!
