Myth 5: Meal Planning is Expensive
We are still trying to wrap our heads around this one! In reality, Meal Planning does not have to cost more than what you can afford. With Meal Planning, one has the ability to buy only what is required and prevents excesses even in cooking.
The leftovers can be incorporated in the next couple of meals. A bigger batch enough to cater for two times can be cooked in a one-time effort. The perishables can be bought only as required and be used prudently.
The non-perishables can be bought and stored for longer durations. Here, one can even take advantage of deals and discounts on volume purchases being offered in stores. With Meal Planning, you can plan really nice meals within your budget and even save some resources from there.
