Meal Planning or Leg Waxing?

Everyone I talk to or watch on YouTube says the best way to save on a grocery bill is to meal plan and I agree.  So why do I avoid it like the plague?  Why does this conversation go on in my head?

I need to get May’s meal plan done.

First, though, I think I’ll scrub all of the grout in the bathroom.  It really needs it.

After that I need to wash windows they are dirty.

Does the house need painting?

Even now, I came into the office and sat down at the desk to finally get my meal plan done so I can shop.  Instead, I’m writing a blog about meal planning.  O_0

It’s crazy!

There are two ways to think about planning meals and shopping.  One is to plan exactly what you are going to eat for breakfast, lunch and snacks and make a list to get all the stuff needed for just those meals.  The other is to buy a bunch of stuff to stock your pantry and just cook what you have.  I guess you could do a combination of the two also.  The problem always is that when it comes time to cook the food, I don’t want anything I’ve planned or have in the pantry and just want to drive to Chickfila and get grilled nuggets with a side salad.  Keto Approved!

Do you meal plan?  Do you stick to it?  Let me know I’m not alone!
