How do you plan your dinners?

do you have the same thing each day of the week?

How do you grocery shop, coupons, by what is on sale, etc?

make what I feel like, DH works nights so he gets what I make one night the next night for dinner

nope

make a list, and get what coupons I can, we normally wait untill safeway sends a spent $50 get $10 taken off in the mail every other week, but we get much of our stuff (toilet paper, non parishablbes) at costco

Usually just make what I have in the freezer. For example, I had turkey wings in the freezer, so I took those out to defrost. I'll make veggies, a salad, and rice or potatoes. No rice or potatoes for me though. I hate my body right now and am determined to get back into my prepregnancy pants!

We don't have the same thing each day of the week.

I don't use coupons. I just use my rewards card.

I try to switch it up. I buy just about all of my meat at BJ's and then just seperate into our portions. So I always have just about everything we eat on hand.
Then we just decide what we want and I make it. Today we're having chicken breasts w/ mushrooms and artichokes.
Either tonight or in the morning I'll decide what to take out of the freezer for tomorrow.
I buy the same things, but I make different things out of them. Like porkchops, we have them a lot but I have about 20 different recipes I use so it's never "the same".
I use coupons if I have them but I don't buy something just because I have a coupon. I use coupons on diapers and wipes as much as possible and cat and dog food, dishwasher tabs, toilet paper and paper towels, tooth paste, etc... I get all that from BJ's.

We have a list of heaps of meal ideas. I just pick from there for the week ahead. We try to mix it up each week. We might have stir fry 2 weeks in a row but change the meat/veggies in it for example. We shop by getting what we need.
