 I usually get off 1 or 2 days a week. Mostly because of leftovers

I'm on track 95% of the time.   I'm lazy and meal planning eliminates quite a bit of work and worry.

I am on track most of the time. I buy only what I need to cook the things on my meal plan when I go grocery shopping.

 I meal plan for seven days a week, I usually end up shuffling the days around as a I see fit, and maybe one day a week we eat something that was not on the meal plan at all. Perhaps two times a month we eat take out because I forfeit dinner and it's easier to order in or go out.

I only buy the things i need for what is on the plan. I may not have it on the day it says. I switch around a lot. But i always have the meals i planned...if that make sense.

Usually. I try to eat leftovers for my lunch, but sometimes there's too much and we have to make a dinner of it, or I plan a night of leftovers and we end up eating it all the first night. I really hate that!

I am good staying on my plan but I only plan about 4 meal per week. Our schedules are all over the place and I do account for leftovers or simple things like spaghetti night.

 When I do meal plan, I typically stick with it.  Where I tend to fall down is in actually making a plan.

Me too. I just add what I didn't make to the next week
