Have you heard of Pocket Full of Posies yet??
Now I believe I have told you before, but I'll tell you yet again... I don't like to cook a whole lot. Anyone who knows me knows that and the reason why is that I hate it when 3 or 4 o'clock rolls around and I stand frustrated in front of my cupboards and fridge trying to scramble to put a decent meal together for my family.
UNTIL NOW. This monthly pocket system has done All of the work for me.
First, you start with a lovely packet like this one:
It has sectioned off weekly pockets and it sticks right on your fridge.
Their are 2 ways to use it and I choose Option 1. It goes like this:
1. Create 4 recipe packs: (everything is included-40 recipes total)
-Choose 4 ingredient lists and the corresponding recipes.
2. Put 1 pack in each pocket.
3. Each week:
-Pull that week’s ingredient list
-Create a grocery shopping list
*Remember to buy everything from the ingredient list that you don’t already have, plus anything else you would need for the week. For example, I wouldn’t put spaghetti sauce on my list if I already have it on hand.
4. Do your grocery shopping.
*You will then have everything you need to make 5 meals for the week.
5. Each day:
-Choose a recipe and make it!
*There are 2 open days a week reserved for leftovers, eating out, etc.
Here is a video tutorial so you can see how it works first hand:
SO EASY!! I think my favorite part is that each week has an ingredient list of all the things you will need for all the meals that week and they all correspond. No crazy weird ingredient that you will only use once. You grab it and take it to the store with you, simple as that.
This Pocket Meal Planning system is designed to save time and money and keep your family consistently fed.
Here's how to enter:
Did I mention that they fold up! This is how small they get. I love that I can snap it and toss it into my purse. I was also very impressed at how large it is when it is opened and that the handles can go up on my shoulder and leave my hands free to wrangle my children. No other reusable bag I have ever used has allowed me to do that.
They have a super cute kids bag line that not only makes my kids want to go to the store just to use it, but it has also become a sleepover sack, a church bag and baby doll carrying purse!
Some of the awesome things about their bags are:
*Tested for strength & safety
*Super strong, holds 44lbs
*Fully washable - won't fade
*Super convenient & water-resistant
*Fashionable & fun - a great gift idea!
*Solution to one-use plastic bags
I love ours and hope to see these fun and fashionable Envirosax in every checkout line!
