  • I plan 3-4 days ahead so I don't have to make short runs to the store. It is easier this way for me so I don't have to think about it at work.

  • Both. I plan 5 meals a week and use that list to shop for groceries. The other 2 days can be whatever but at least then, I have a list of options to choose from that I know I have all the stuff to make.

  • I do not plan. I'm good at stocking up on random things and making meals either last minute or planning a day or so ahead (if I need to use the crock pot, for example).

  • I do not plan. Some nights I eat at my parents when I pick my son up after I am done with class.
