Thanks to all the women who wrote in on social media with their meal planning and organizing tips! Here is a list of useful tips from our listeners:

Use a 3 column spreadsheet: meals in the first, grocery list in middle and notes in third (like which cookbook the recipe is in, defrost chicken, if we have something special that night)

Sit down to plan once a week or every other week, then shop 1 or 2 times a week

Use Community Supported Agriculture (CSA’s) or co-ops

Pick your top 10 meals – buy the food to make those and then rotate
