Meal Planning - Why I'm Quitting!

So I tried out "meal planning" for 2 weeks.  Yeah, it's not for me.  I'll add meal planning to that long list of things that I'm not good at.  I think I actually stuck to my game plan 3 out of 14 days.  That's failing no matter what system you use.  To think positively though, I see that one of my strong suits in life is being able to open my refrigerator and cabinets everyday and magically have something for dinner without any prior planning.  And worst case?  Our pizza place is speed dial number 5 on my cell phone.

So good-bye meal planning.  It wasn't nice to know you in the short time you existed in my life.  I admit defeat - but to make myself feel better, I'm going to run to Shaw's tonight after my husband gets home to redeem myself!

Meal planning doesn't work for me either - but like you I'm pretty good at pulling something together at the last minute with no prior planning. Although I resort to frozen pizza about once a week...

Becky, I too find it fruitless to plan meals so far in advance, too many things come up, but I am always able to make a dinner dish without too much planning.

I find my cravings get in the way of meal planning. If I plan for chicken, I want beef. If I plan for beef, I want spaghetti. Oh well.
