About this Project
If you have kids, food is a constant.
Going to the grocery store without a plan can be overwhelming and expensive.
Planning your meals out for the week is key to winning with your budget and being prepared through the week.
We tend to choose from the same several recipes to make meals every week, and every family has their own flavor.
