It's a chore that I hate, but admittedly, Meal Planning saves me the most grocery money. I use recipe sites to decide dinner for the next week or two, saving the recipes to my Bookmarks. I make enough of one meal to have leftovers for another day at least, saving me electricity and labor to boot. Having staples on hand for breakfast and is easy enough. Cereal, waffles, eggs and frozen sausage make up quickly during the work week for breakfast. And leftovers are effortless lunches which can be packed the night prior. Then I just include some sandwich fixings and my list is complete.
Since I've done this for a year now, I know most of my list prior because of staples. Then it's just a matter of sorting through my saved recipes for the rest.
