A weekly meal plan, good or very boring?

At this time in my life I am on a very tight budget, with not much work around for freelancers and with having to look after my 11 month old son any extra pennies I can save is a grand thing.

My friend told me once that his sister has a weekly meal planner, its up on her fridge. To me at the time this seemed very dull, if not a bit anal. Why would you want to have such structured meals? No room for creativity, fun or spontaneity, just quite b o o o r i n g really. Well thats what I thought I thought, until i came across an article about family meals, it sounds like having a predictable weekly meal plan really could make life on a budget much easier. Well, we are all allowed to change our minds aren’t we…

…i’ll let you know how I get on.
(And please share your own results!)
