I'm torn. I've gone through and made 4 weeks worth of menus that I think I could repeat over and over with a few minor adjustments (adding/removing seasonal items or produce when appropriate). It looks alright, and I came up with 28 different dinners to use so I'm not always eating the same thing and I even went through the back of each menu and made a grocery list.
I think this would help me stay on track with a grocery budget and cut out the extra dining out if I didn't have the "what's for dinner" question looming over my head all the time.
My question for those of you who have menus is this: Do they work? Do you stick to them? Do they save you any time or money? Do you like it?

who has time??? We fly by the seat of our pants - of course I try to use left overs for new dinners - we just eat as healthy as possible and play it by ear - i try to plan at least a day or two ahead with defrosting meats, etc - sometimes that doesn't even work out our schedule is always changing

I used them for awhile and it totally messed up the routine, with the time in making them. My husband loves cooking so when he is home he does it. It didn't save us any money at all if any it set us back at least £40.
