Product Description

Product Description

Once I started planning both my menus and my shopping list together, I found that I saved myself not only a great deal of money, but also a great deal of sanity. Dinner time is no longer quite as stressful as it once was. Not only saving money and sanity, menu planning also saved me time.
I discovered something very important: a little bit of time spent planning my menu and shopping for the week ahead saved me around an hour each day, not including the time it would take to run to the store for a missing ingredient.
Since beginning to get serious about menu planning consistently, and using these principles I'm going to share with you in figuring out my grocery list and menu plan, I have saved myself more time, money, and stress than I ever would imagined. Yes, my time and money went up, while my stress went down, all from spending a little extra time planning.

Although many of the stores are different here the principles are the same. It has inspired me to be more organised and use coupons better and also use my slow cooker more. Thank you Kimberley.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Dinner & Budget Saver 10 Sep 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on

This book is wonderful. Unlike most menu planning books, it TEACHES you how to plan. It doesn't just tell you what to cook.

We have already saved so much money and time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Overall, I liked this book with a few caveats 31 Mar 2013

Overall, I liked the Saving with Menu Planning book by Kimberly Eddy. In her book she offers some really good ideas on how organize your menu, stock your pantry and save money at the same time.

The things I really liked about her book included:

How to create a Master Price List
The We're Out of Something List
How to schedule menus based on time committments

The things I did not like included:

I don't like cookbooks that link to an author's book which you can buy for more information. Eddy suggested buying one of her books to supplement how to save money by shopping long-term.

I'm not fond of books that link to external websites for more information. The reason being is you are not always going to have access to the Internet. Eddy provides a link for printing and downloading a seasoning guide. The link is found at location 721 of her book.

Finally, she gives some really good ideas on how to protect your well-used cookbooks. While her ideas are excellent, I would suggest purchasing either Mastercook 11.0 or Macgourmet Deluxe 3.0 as both software programs will allow you to type in and save your favorite recipes. Both programs offer easy menu planning too. In particular, MacGourmet will export your menu plans to the Mac calendar making it easy to find what your meal plan for the day is. In fact, you can even set up a reminder, if you like using the Mac calender.

Overall, this is a well thought out cookbook. Recommend.
