Benefits of Monthly Meal Planning?
There are SO many benefits to using the monthly meal planner. As soon an I started using the binder, I saw a huge difference in my grocery bill. I was impulse buying less at the grocery store because it was not in the meal plan that I created before I went shopping. 

With a built-in day to eat leftovers, I have been saving money on food waste.

Tips and tricks to meal plan in under 30 minutes Place all your monthly activities and dates on the printable calendar first before you start planning out your meals. You don’t want to plan to make a 30-minute meal when you have hockey and dance practice on the same evening.  Keep a list of your family’s favorite meals to always go back to when you are stuck coming up with meals or making sure you have them planned throughout the current month’s meals. Have weekly themed meals (see below) that you can rotate through every day of the month. For example, meatless Monday, taco Tuesday, etc. Always use a pencil because life happens and you will need to make changes to your monthly meal planner. Use the season to help you plan out your meals and what is considered in season when planning your meals. Not only will it be cheaper, but you will find what you are looking for in the stores faster. I love watermelon in the summer and hearty crockpot meals in the fall.
How is a monthly meal planner different than meal prepping?
Meal prepping is different than a meal planner based on the words “prep” and “plan.” That is exactly it. 

One is a plan for your meals and the other is prepping your meals. First comes the plan then comes the prep. 

The benefit that meal planning and meal prepping is both make your life super easy!

A step-by-step guide to meal prepping will help you get started with the “prep” side of your meals.
