It can feel mundane or frustrating even because sometimes it's just hard to plan.
For me, I have to do this. Normally, I have four individual schedules to work around. And for me, I really like to avoid the last minute decision of what to eat. It usually ends up being expensive, something that I don't really want and probably unhealthy.
Our weekly menu chalkboard is my absolute favorite thing we've created. Sure, I love our "We Hate Everything Together" stuff, but I use our menu boards every week. I am able to create my grocery list based on my menu plans. This helps me not starve my family. Or want to strangle them when I'm asked 40 times a day "What's for dinner?". Bonus! If there's a clear laid out menu plan, anyone available to cook is empowered to do so!
