This is exactly how I do it, too! It is just too easy and organized to not do. lil3002angel on August 23, 2010 at 3:33 pm Great video! I need to start doing something like this. I’m not a very good cook so any advice is helpful. lol ArmindaHeart on August 23, 2010 at 4:09 pm I like WinCo. Don’t know if you have this where you live, but they have a lot of stuff for very cheap. They even have bulk bins filled with various things like flower, spices, beans, cereal, etc. It’s really neat. I live in CA. We don’t have a Winn-Dixies or a Bi-Lo’s : ( It’s funny because we have a Save Lot, similar to the name of your store, Save A Lot lol. I guess the point is that you save? haha! TiffanyPanini on August 23, 2010 at 4:15 pm No, but I will have to try that out! Thanks! TiffanyPanini on August 23, 2010 at 4:36 pm I worked at Save A Lot for almost 2 years, so I really like their stuff. They’ve gotten real good with the variety and coupons. I’d like to try Aldi’s though, only the closet one is like 40 minutes away We have Winn-Dixie’s in my area and I like them too. They are kind of like Bi-Lo’s in the South! Where do you like to go? TiffanyPanini on August 23, 2010 at 5:24 pm I don’t care if you do one too; I’d love to see!!! Any new ideas would be great! Especially from a mom my age 🙂 TiffanyPanini on August 23, 2010 at 5:53 pm I always fall in and out of doing it! Some times I have “great” ideas that don’t ever make it on paper, know what I mean? LOL Hoping to get that video up Tuesday! TiffanyPanini on August 23, 2010 at 6:08 pm I understand what you mean! When I was working last year, I don’t think I could have had a menu plan each week. I’m always trying to find ways to stay organized in the kitchen, because when I was working, I knew how daunting it was to come home and have to make dinner! ArmindaHeart on August 23, 2010 at 6:58 pm oh yeah! another thing: Have you ever tried using whole wheat pasta for your fettuccine Alfredo? It’s pretty tasty, and good for you too. Your son might like it : ) ArmindaHeart on August 23, 2010 at 7:20 pm where are some of the places you like to shop for the best prices? jillian5891 on August 23, 2010 at 7:34 pm That’s great that you do that! I wish I could, but I work 12 hr shifts so it’d be hard. Maybe I’ll try it on my days off… dreamflight6000 on August 23, 2010 at 7:45 pm Nice video! JeniProkop on August 23, 2010 at 7:54 pm Great vid! I totally want to do this! I just need to do it (-: lol- that’s the hard part!!! I’d love to see how you do your tator tot cassarole! (: Y3llowPineapple on August 23, 2010 at 8:40 pm OMG! that is crazy i do this EXACT same thing!!!! execpt i do mine a little different but pretty much the same. i was going to do a video about it but now i will feel like a coppy cat lol. maybe ill do it and just show how i come up with whats for dinner and stuff! oh and also another thing thats different is that i do sat. and sun. too! aacosta26 on August 23, 2010 at 9:15 pm Great idea!! Hopefully I will be able to start a weekly menu for my family. I love the shoping list idea. I’m looking forward to your dinner videos!! I really want to learn to cook lol! TiffanyPanini on August 23, 2010 at 10:11 pm Yea, that’s why we kind of stopped meal planning. Sometimes I just like to cook whatever I feel like at that time! Having a couple of “go to” meals is a good idea too, like spaghetti (you always have noodles, sauce and beef on hand). Having a couple of ideas to choose from for 1 week is a good idea too! You will still have a couple of things to buy ingredients for the week! LadeeSlimster on August 23, 2010 at 11:08 pm I just cook whatever I feel like having for that day. I just now got an erase board so I can write down two meal ideas and pick out of those two. good idea. I’ll see if I can make my menu to see. I was thinking about having a menu for thanksgiving. this will be the first time i’m going to have it at my place. Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
