We are a big family. I have six boys at home. They are 2, 4, 9, twins who are 12 and a 17 year old. Plus my husband. I do a lot of cooking each week. I am a busy mama from the time I get up until the time I go to bed.
If you ever wonder what large family meal planning looks like, you have come to the right place.
Each week I prepare a meal plan for my family. I have created a process that works effortlessly, and I could do it in my sleep at this point.
Then I order my groceries online. This is a HUGE time saver for busy moms and it helps me stick to my budget. No impulse shopping and I can see my total as I add things to my cart.
Then each day I know what needs to be prepared for dinner simply by looking at my meal plan.
I rely on freezer meal recipes a great deal. They have honestly taken so much frustration out of my life.
And I love to share ideas and encourage mamas over in my Facebook group Get Dinner on the Table.
Large Family Meal Planning
I have been sharing my weekly meal plans on my site since 2009. Here is an ongoing list of my meal plans each week. Enjoy!
Here was my very first meal plan to share on the internet… as well as many ramblings. This was September 2009 and this blog was very new. Wow, how things have changed. I went on to share a new meal plan every single week until about year 3 when I took a break. In January 2018 I missed sharing my meal plans every week and here we are. I will slowly get all the weeks of meal planning shared here from 2009 to 2018, but…. time. It will certainly take some time. It is fun to see how my meal plans have changed over the years.
