 week by week or spur of the moment

how do you decide what to make for meals?  do you plan out menus daily, weekly?  do you just fly by the moment with what you have at hand & are in the mood for?

We plan by the week, but I always make one shopping trip to SAMs to buy in bulk things we will use all month.

We do a weekly menu so I only make one shopping trip. But as far as what we actually eat, that's more day-to-day. I just choose a meal from that week's list that sounds good on a particular night.

Week by week. We used to do a fly by the moment and then I got a kick in the beginning of the year called "No Repeat March". And I made it a plan each week for the whole month to do a new recipe. So for the whole month we had no repeat recipes which required planning on my part each week.

Every since then I refuse to go by the day. Saves us a bunch of money to plan week by week.

I have a bunch in the freezer. Some cooked and then some not. I just pick what I feel like that day.
