  • I do the meal plan about three weeks ahead, and shop one week in advance.

  • I do a weekly meal plan.

  • I shop fortnightly so I do my meal plans fortnightly. If I shopped weekly, meal plan would be weekly. Not sure what I would do if I shopped monthly…..a monthly meal plan, not sure I’m that organised

  • No but I plan to start this year. I will be doing a 2 weekly rotating meal plan. 5 kids it’s hard to do but will be gib ohm it a try!

  • Yes I do a weekly meal planner but it depends on when you do your shop, weekly, fortnightly etc. Fresh fruit and vegetables are bought weekly as is milk and bread (I don’t have a chest freezer so this works for me).
    I shop every Thursday so my planner starts on Thursday. I try to make the meals family friendly as possible but still healthy.

  • I try to do a weeks worth and buy on a Saturday all the veggies and fruit needed meat j get either that day or day before (I’m a bit fussy for my meat)
    alsi my fruit is normally finished by Wednesday but don’t mind as long as it’s eaten and not wasted.
    Hope this helps.
    I normally let the boys pick meals 1 night a week but have to give me 2 days notice or make it a Friday night boys choice. 1 normally picks subway other 1 veggies or wraps
