When & why I started meal planning
Used to work in theatre during university and had limited availability during the weekdays and nights
Was tired of eating rubbish when I got home late at night from work
Fast food (even healthy salads and sandwiches) were expensive
When living alone, or cooking for one, organisation is important. If you make things in bulk and freeze them then it’s cheaper and there is less wastage
How to put together a plan
Before you start with your meal plan, it really helps to sit down and check when you or your family have busy days/evenings, as this will help determine what you will be cooking or if you even need to cook
Doing your first plan will take a little time as you’ve got to create your template and spend time finding recipes, but the more you do, the easier it gets
I start off in Excel using a template I’ve created. I have the days running vertically along the column on the left on the screen and the different meals running horizontally across the top (heading up each column)
E.g. it will read Monday – Breakfast, Morning Snack, Lunch, Afternoon Snack, Dinner
I then start to fill in the meals for each day. On busy days, I’ll either have leftovers from earlier on in the week (things like chilli or casseroles tend to make 4 portions) or do something quick and easy like a stir fry. On days when I have more time, I’ll do something a little more adventurous and time consuming
I use a combination of tried and tested healthy recipes and seek inspiration from cookery books, blogs and websites
Usually I have the same thing for a couple of meals so remember you don’t have to cook something new every day!

Finding the right wedding favors — neither too cheap nor too grand — can be difficult. With wedding favors, the line between cute and kitsch is hin. If you either can’t or don’t decide to spend money on favors, then you should forego giving anything at all — it’s not necessary. With a little creativity, however, you can probably find or make the perfect favor.

Strategies take our vision and create an approach that will enable us to realize that vision. A strategy is a way to create value and leverage to achieve out outcome faster with less effort.

Things have to be done in a particular order to achieve the best desired results. A critical component of getting the results we want is planning.
