Meal Plan #18

A key thing that I do to write my meal plan consistently is checking what’s in my fridge! Our fridge is the key to consistent, homemade meals. I take out everything, wipe down the shelves, and take note of what I have prior to planning my meals for the week. If there is something due to expire, I set it aside and plan around it to ensure it’s eaten. This means I’m not buying food I don’t need, minimising waste, and saving money.
