I Am One Big Frugal Flop

I can’t make menu planning work for me. This past week, my failure to follow up my plan made me throw in the garbage three pounds of ground beef that I took out of the freezer to turn into meatballs but forgot to do.

I don’t understand why I can’t make menu planning work for me. Somehow I feel that the plan of Monday we eat X, then Tuesday we eat Y, and so on and so forth is too rigid for me. What happens when it’s 4 pm and I forgot to take the meat out for Tuesday’s meal? or what if I just don’t have time to make it?

I wish this entry was about how I found a way to make it work, but I haven’t done that. I don’t have the answer to this riddle. Meanwhile I’ll stick to defrosting meat in the microwave I guess.
