Ask Anna Pearl – Meal Planning 101 – WHAT DO YOU ALREADY HAVE?

One of the major parts of an effective meal planning program is proper grocery shopping habits. The goal of of meal planning is to save money, time, and to provide healthy meals to your family. One way to start at accomplishing theses goals is to determine what food and supplies your currently have in your pantry.

Your challange for today is to clean out and inventory your pantry, fridge and freezer. Throw away any food that is too old to be eaten. Put away the guilt for having wasted this food. If you follow your plan, this is the last time you will have to do this!

As you clean, inventory the items that you have. Make a comprehensive list of all food, spices, and food storage supplies. Include how much of each item is in the container. For example, Under Spices Heading, I would write Nutmeg: 1/4 container.

When you are all finished with the list, attach it to your refrigerator. You will use this when you are grocery shop in the future.

On, Tuesday, we will consider what you family likes to eat.
