I find menu planning is working really well. I might swap meals around a little if unforeseen events occur, but I stick to the menu otherwise.
Planning a menu means that I shop to that menu, so there's no last minute searching for some ingredient.
It also stops me buying things I think I might use and then find in the bottom of the fridge all mouldy weeks later.
Do you Menu Plan?
