And we are already going into week two of January. For real? Time flies when you are having fun or keeping busy. Do you ever get tired of meal planning? I admit I do. It sure does help keep me on budget and a little more organized, though. My husband will tell you that I need all the help I can get.  We’ve reached week 9 in our frugal meal plan and I have a few things in the works for the next few weeks that I can’t wait to share.
