Menu Planning Basics Revisited

I’m reviving posts from over the years with tips and tricks to help you get started, or refine your planning.  I still use these, with a few learned techniques for dealing with teenage appetites and schedules.  At CheapThrillsInOmaha, we provide a lot of info to help you enjoy life in the Big O more frugally.  And sometimes our best info gets buried by current deals.  So we’ve dusted it off for you.

Check out these posts, and let us know what works for your household.  We’re all about sharing the love here.
