Charlene grew up watching all the classic Disney movies and dreaming of being a princess but only recently became a full-fledged Disney Fanatic when her Prince Charming finally talked her into taking their family of seven on a WDW vacation (after 10 years of begging). Now, Charlene is often found pinning Disney tips, reading Disney blogs, and strategically planning out their next Disney vacations. Out of their five children, there is only one little princess, with whom Charlene can live vicariously through, meeting Disney princesses and watching all the magical Disney fairy tales together. Charlene is also an independent travel planner with Ears of Experience, contact her for all your Disney travel needs at www.charleneplansthemagic.com

We all have places to be, kids to cart around, and laundry to do. What if meals didn’t have to be such a stress factor?

They really don’t!

It goes a little like this…spend some time on Saturdays making your menu for the week. Write it down and make a plan. From there, you make your shopping list and hit the town.

Set Sundays aside for prepping food in advance for your week. Make a big salad. Put several chicken breasts in the crock pot to shred and use for salads and wraps. Roast a few pans of veggies. Make a batch of quinoa. All of these foods can be portioned out for lunches and/or dinners throughout the week.

I like to use these containers from Amazon for packing lunches ahead of time for easy grab and go. (This is a non-affiliate link. Just sharing, because it’s the nice thing to do!)

Planning out your meals in advance helps simplify your life and saves time during the week.
