I love to make lists and plan ahead ..not really sure what it is about them but I find it’s a way of organizing myself. So if eating healthy is my goal (or sticking to a grocery budget) I find I need to make a plan. I love this because; a. I am a hopeless type “A”, b. if I don’t plan I don’t have any thing healthy to eat and then I don’t eat but then after.. I eat really not so good 😉 & finally c. then my grocery budget is much more manageable. Each time I get into the store I buy ..and typically not just what is on the list.. so.. yea..
