Nada’s tip for meal planning: living in the country for most of my life, I learned pretty quickly that you just can’t whip down to the store to pick up that forgotten ingredient to make dinner. So, I instituted a “back up plan” for all non-perishables: pantry items, cleaning and hygiene products, and even frozen items…have a second item in the cupboard as your “back-up”. Once you start using the back-up item, add it to your grocery list…then look for specials for that item to restock the product. You’ll lessen your frustration level when you reach for a box of Kleenex or condensed milk and it isn’t there.
