Back to school means, back to routine! Time to live up to a summer of over indulgence of ice cream cones and drinks with fancy umbrellas (although I could go for one of each right about now). Time to get back on track, mentally, and physically.
Many people make New Year’s resolutions in January. However, I’ve always felt like September was the month to make significant changes happen. September for me is always about getting back on track and diving into a new routine with sharp focus and drive.
Let’s talk about meal planning.
Alright, I will be honest, I’ve always struggled with meal planning. I can give you my thousands of reasons why, but that won’t help either of us.

If I had a magic wand, I’d dreamed of an online tool that produced meal plans for my family based on our needs and tastes.
I’d ask for it to populate serving sizes based on the size of my family or more.
If only it would have a grocery list that I could check off what I have on hand and magically it would email its self to me!
Now that would be my dream!
I found what all of us women dream of, and you won’t believe how affordable it is!
