I'm having such trouble getting my act together, do any of you have any tricks you use to put together a weekly menu and shop list? I always end up spending gobs more money than I should and I'm back at the shops to buy things I forgot, I'm just basically chaotic. I'd love to have some inside information on a system that works and isn't too hard to work up??

Buy as much frozen as u can, its a lot cheaper for eg chicken pieces/fillets, the same for fish and seafood. Tesco are good for the 3 for £10 on both fresh meat and fish. When u get to cruise get in loadsa frozen veg, already chopped and doesnt take ad long to cook!

It is easy to forget things, you find u run out coz the dates in dairy etc isnt brilliant. These are just things i found!

with dairy I find that the Total yoghurt has quite lengthy dates? But I always reach for the ones at the back or underneath lol for long dates :)

At first I used to prepare a menu plan for the week and then do my shopping list from that. Now I've found what I like to eat best so my shopping list is the same most weeks.

Thanks for the replies everyone. It looks like I'll feel better about it once I've got 7-10 days of cruise under my belt and I've found out which recipes I like, etc. Wouldn't it be nice if someone just brought your cooked meals round to your house every day??? :)

Add some flavouring? There's some pretty yummy ones on lowcarbmegastore apparently, or some of the Dukan ones sound good - passionfruit might be nice in yoghurt. I like to add SF jelly crystals to greek yoghurt as I find the taste so grim!

I check offers on mysupermarket and try and base meals round those, when I'm being organised :D
I dont plan a full week of meals as it makes me feel too hemmed in, but make sure I have enough breakfast, lunches, dinners, plus a spare or 2.
