World Vegan Month Tip #2

To avoid that "It's 6:00: what's for dinner?" panic that many of us face, it pays to be organized. Often the meals we choose at the last minute aren't the healthiest, just the quickest. When you're trying to eat more healthfully and save money by eating more at home, keeping a binder full of your favorite recipes is a smart idea. Go through your cookbooks and copy your favorite recipes; print out the ones you like online. Having your favorite vegan recipes in one spot saves time and money

Good call. I keep meaning to do something like this but just never get around to it, and then get annoyed when I can't find my favorite recipes! I think this will be my weekend project :)

Thanks, guys. I've found that when I'm pressured for time, I make decisions that are not great all the way around. Devoting a little time to organizations definitely pays. It does not come naturally to me at all but I'm trying to train myself. :)

I torment my husband by making him pick recipes with me before our weekly trip to the grocery store. That way, we spend less money on random stuff and know what we'll be eating for the week, which means less reliance on takeout or spaghetti.
