I'm talking about grocery shopping people.
I have a little problem with grocery shopping. My problem is that I go to the grocery store EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
I'm very very interested in meal planning and absolutely LOVE the idea...in concept.
When in comes to actually DOING it, I fail miserably.
For example, I've been here for 4 weeks now...to the day, and I have done a BIG grocery shop, ie. spent $200 and stocked my pantry with essentials, exactly once.
I have things like tomato sauce and corn that I stocked up on, but no matter how hard I try I end up at the grocery store once a day to pick up the little odds and ends...ok the majority of the ingredients because stocking up to me is 2 cans of tomato sauce and thus I'm always out of that too!
I want to break this terrible habit of mine.
But my NYC/Sydney mentality of having no car and thus no way to carry more groceries than I can carry has not left me.
Enter what I hope to be the solution - MEAL PLANNING.
If you know what you're cooking for the week you can theoretically buy everything all at once, right?
Who out there does meal planning? Does it work? Do you stick to your plan? Any tips?
