Benefits of Meal Planning #EveryDayCare

October 23, 2015

*I was part of the Every day, care™project with Whirlpool® as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #EveryDayCare

I’m still wrapping my head around having a five year old and a newborn. Balancing two kids I’m quickly reminded how much is needed to run my household. Most of the tasks I take on around the house like doing laundry, washing bottles, baths, making lunch and dinner may seem minor but Whirlpools’ Every day, care™ project reminds us these tasks make a big impact on my family. What if I didn’t wash and pick out Peyton’s clothes? Peyton wouldn’t have cute outfits to wear and more than likely be late for school. What if I didn’t make lunch or dinner? My family would be forced to make unhealthy choices and spend insane amounts of money.

Cooking is one of the areas that I always struggle with. For one, I can’t stand cooking. My new kitchen has made this task more bearable. I also started meal planning to take the stress out of dinnertime.

Meal planning saves time, money and sanity! With a baby less than a month old, I don’t have the luxury of running to the store multiple times a week. After I write down the meals for the week, I create a shopping list in my phone. Making a meal plan also saves money. Eating out can get crazy expensive. It’s has been proven that meal prepared at home are healthier. I only eat fried foods when I eat out (go figure). Stay home, save money, and eat healthier by meal planning.

    I also need to do better when it comes to meal planning. Some weeks are better than others but it is still a struggle. I have begun the process of creating a cookbook so I can always have the best recipes at my fingertips instead of raking my brain for something to make, can you tell me where you found the red “My Family Cookbook” in the picture above ? That book is soooo cute and would be great to put all my recipes in, does it come in other colors?!

    Hello Krystle,

    It’s called My Family Cookbook. I was sent to me as a gift from a brand, so I don’t know much about it. I think it’s from the UK from a company SuckUK. Good luck with your cookbook!
