Quick Tip: Plan Meals AFTER You Shop


Sounds strange, doesn’t it? But hear me out.

I don’t always shop with a list, especially if I’m on a tighter than usual budget. Why? Because I can shop, finding the items with the best prices, and create meals from those foods when I get home. If I only have $25.00 to spend, I take it to the store and challenge myself to get as much as I can for that price.

I know the basics: Vegetables first, protein sources second, fruit third, and a healthy fat if I have nothing at home. My basic shopping list literally has these four things – no specifics.

Also, I don’t leave for the trip not knowing what is in my pantry, refrigerator, and freezer.

On the occasion I want something specific, I do add the specific ingredients I will need to my shopping list.

Happy cooking!
