Being prepared is the key when it comes to controlling your family’s expenses, but how do you manage that? One great idea is to plan your meals a week in advance, then use the set menus to prepare your weekly grocery list.

You can find free menu planning tools on the internet – some even create your weekly shopping list automatically. If that sounds easier for you, go for it! But if you’d rather keep to pen and paper you can download our easy Weekly Menu Planner sheet below. Use it to write down what you’ll be feeding your family this week and then take it with you to the grocery store to keep you on track while you shop.

Spending five minutes planning meals can help you cut down on impulse and last-minute shopping – saving your family money and helping to ensure that you eat nutritious meals.
