If I had unlimited money one of the many things I would do would be stop cooking. Yes, I know that’s probably really bad. But in all honesty, I not only dislike cooking at home, I also tend to eat healthier when I’m eating out. That being said, I do not have unlimited money, so cooking at home is something I’m stuck with doing. I’ve realized that one way to make that whole deal go a bit smoother (and minimize food waste and last-minute takeout orders) is to start meal planning.
To make meal planning easier and prettier—because I do really love being surrounded by things that are both functional and well designed—I ordered this beautiful meal-planning notepad from Jack and Ella Paper and I’m already loving it.
In addition to using this new notepad (and hanging it up near the fridge so I remember why I got all the groceries I got), I also rely on Pinterest and some select cookbooks to keep track of recipes to make. Whenever I’m stumped, I just open them up to get inspired.
Are you a meal-planner? How do you make it easier and more fun?
