This is a very high tech system so please pay attention. Take a piece of paper, a ruler (if you are OCD) and a crayon or pencil. Draw a line down the center of the paper. Divide the left side into 6 squares. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Sat/Sun. Get your calender. Look at your week. If you have plans Tuesday night write it on the bottom of Tuesdays square. Do this for each evening activity you have. Next, write in the dinner's you want for each night. Use the right side of the page to list your things you need from the store.
Keep a running Wal-Mart list on the fridge so you can quickly jot down what you need to get. Keep the next week's blank menu behind this week's so if you run out of a staple like sugar you can jot it down.
Menu planning is the biggest thing to do today as you start out. We'll talk about more things to do in Office Day next week. (a little sneak peak: Thursday is errand day, the day to go to the grocery store for the week)
