Today is the first day, my childhood friend and I are moving forward in setting our menu planning in motion!  We collaborated on the phone and created a menu for both our families for seven days.  We are starting on Thursday to plan, giving us the end of the week, before the circular date runs out. So that's by midnight on Saturday.  Sunday we begin cooking our menu.  

Since our family activities and schedules are different, we use the same 7 dinners, and move them around within the week, but still make the same dishes.  We will compare with our local circulars (she in NJ and me in PA) and see who saves the most that week.  We will save those recipes with the dates and... eventually... our goal is to have menus built up for a year spending no more than $100.00 a week!

Keeping you posted!

Well, I sure hope you keep us informed about how that goes! I'd like to hear about it, and especially thoughts about how to deal with menu planning and crazy schedules! Good luck!
