More Meal Planning

If my last post on meal planning seemed overwhelming, here are a few helps.

Feeling overwhelmed?:
Take one tip and use it, you don't have to do it all.
Slowly add in the other tips if you want
Just know - the getting started is more work than any of the planning. It will save you time in the end

Can't decide what to make?:
This Week For Dinner - weekly menus (both hers and in the comments)

Don't know what to do with your ingredients?:
Allrecipes.com - use their advanced search, you can type in ingredients you want or don't want. The ratings are a great help.

Help with couponing:
Pinching Your Pennies - a great link to organize ads and coupons for various areas
Savvy Shopper Deals - a great link to organize ads and coupons... but mostly in Utah County area; anyone can benefit from her video tutorials
Coupons.com - print online coupons
Boodle.com - print online coupons
Check the manufacturer's websites for coupons

What resources do you use? I would love to add them to this list!

I love hip2save.com I check it daily for coupon deals and all kinds of other deals on the web that I normally would miss. Great resource to have.
