    I’m so impressed. I have never been organized enough to do menus for a week!

      Hi, Shanda. You can do it – friend!!! I recommend starting out by planning just 2-3 meals a week. Once you get comfortable doing that and seeing the benefits, it will be much easier to progress from there. Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! Blessings, Kelly
