Right I have everything I need to make the meal but I dont have it set up where Monday we eat ___, Tues ___ and so on. It often depends on what is going on, who is home, what everyone wants to eat, etc. 

Quoting hugss:

Do you mean you know what you'll have for the week but can whatever any day right ?

Quoting MamaMandee:

I do an overall menu but things are not set for certain days.

 I do. On Sunday I get the paper and make my list according what is on sale and go shopping on Wednesday at about 4p.m. Because at that time is when the manager's specials are put out to get rid of the expiring great buys before the shipment for the sale the next day!

So since you make your list first .. do you then decide what meals to make ?
That's a great plan you have & bet it saves money as well :)

 I plan a menu with, fish , chicken and meat a bit vague, usually with vegetables and some sort of grain, then tweak it while shopping. This way I can make sure I utilize my coupons and shop what is on sale.
