December is historically a busy month, so I wanted to be on it this month. I don’t want the budget or my sanity to suffer, because we have more things on the calendar than we normally would. When you’re putting together your December meal plan, try to add in days you’ll have stuff going on. Also, try to have some non-perishable items so if you have a last minute event come up, you can host friends for dinner or you’ll have dinner on hand. Be sure to schedule in some movie nights or game nights or just lazy nights to recover as a family throughout the month, too.
