I am using Trello for my meal planning (and general life organization) video that I am sharing today. It’s free, there is also an app you can use and it is magical!
If you are not using Trello yet, I highly recommend it! It has become an important tool for time management and implementation strategy when setting goals and creating the activities for those goals.
Trello has become my best friend as I get my life in order. You can create customized boards. I have quite a few specific to my business and my home. I break things down by month in my business to keep me focused and organized because I know what’s coming every day, week, and month.
As I plan weekly meals, one thing that has helped a ton is for me to set aside some time on Saturday or Sunday. Sunday seems to work the best for this. I find that it’s a more relaxing time to figure out what we are going to eat for the upcoming week.
I like to have dinner and breakfast options planned out for the week. However; in my case, for my family, dinner is probably the most important to plan. When it comes to breakfast in our house, we tend to keep some quick things on hand. We prepare breakfast burritos to freeze and boiled eggs ahead of time or my kids just grab a bowl of cereal or toast and a boiled egg. I make myself and my husband a green smoothie every morning (one of us likes that more than the other, I will let you guess who doesn’t. HINT: the answer isn’t me).
In the video below I am sharing tips and trick about meal planning. I am sharing my meal options and how my grocery list became smaller and more organized. Typically, you go to the grocery store and forget most items because the list you wrote out is on your kitchen counter (or is that just me?), you impulse shop, and you wander aimlessly because you don’t exactly know what to prepare everyday.
Enter the ever-amazing Trello! (I can’t sing the praises enough)
I am showing you how to create your own organized grocery list on Trello.
I break down the list by:
You have everything in one place. You look for a recipe, add the ingredients and even the link you got the recipe from. This is really helpful in case you forgot to add something. And remember how I said there is an app? Now your list and meal plans are mobile!! Cue the singing angels!! 😇
