Hope you don't mind my two cents on the issue... I've been meal planning all two years we've been married, and I have some things that work well for me.

When we lived in town and I could easily do my shopping the day ads came out, I would always look at the ads in the morning, then plan the meals. That way, I never had to worry if what I needed was on sale. I'd plan around the sales! Also... I always stocked up on certain things when they were on sale: hamburger, chicken thighs/breasts, spaghetti sauce, (and chips/pudding for DH's lunch.)

My second tip is to be flexible on the schedule. It got to where I would resent what meal I planned for that day. So now, I have a variety of options and then in the AM, DH & I talk about what he wants for dinner that night. It works so much better for us!

Good luck! Meal planning is a lot of work, but oh so worth it!!!
