  1. My menu plan strategy:
    Put dinners in the calendar. When I go to plan the week, I just move things from the past into the future. The meals keep rolling forward until I get sick of them, or they go out of season (soups get punted from spring to fall). It’s really really easy to keep doing it, and it takes a lot of stress out of “what’s for dinner”.

    My grocery shopping tip: Shop online. OMG, I shop so much smarter on the internet and just doing pickup than walking through the store. Even if pickup costs a couple bucks, I’m ahead. Plus my time is worth the three bucks to save an hour.
