Meal Planning & Freezer Cooking Class in Raleigh Tomorrow!

Today I am getting ready for my Meal Planning and Freezer Cooking class on Tuesday night. As I have gotten better and better at meal planning myself, I have tweaked the class. Tuesday night's class has all new handouts.

Come learn how to save money, time, and sanity at my Meal Planning and Freezer Cooking class tomorrow night! Class is in my home in Raleigh from 7-9:15pm and there are still 4 spots open. I do not know which I want more of. . money, time, or sanity. What about you?

Not only will you learn how to maximize your savings, but you will learn how to transform that hectic, rushed, stressful dinnertime into a time to come together and connect, a peaceful gathering, a time to bless and enjoy your family and friends. Really!

My goal is for you to go from overwhelmed and frustrated to empowered and confident, to equipped when you hear that question, “What’s for dinner?”

 We’ll cover:

-How to inventory your stockpile. I'll take you on a tour of my stockpile. But don't worry, if you are not a couponer and do not have a big stockpile, you will still benefit from this class.

-How to organize the stockpile and shop from it

-Crock Potting, Freezer Cooking, Batch Cooking, Once a Month Cooking

-What freezes and what does not and the best way to wrap food to avoid freezer burn

-How to keep fresh produce from going bad so quickly

-Sale Cycles and more details on that price book (what is the target price you should aim for for certain items)

-And the best part: how to build sweet memories around the dinner table and perhaps a trick or two to get the kids to eat what’s put in front of them. But even if you do not have kids, there will be plenty of “secrets” shared to make your dinner table a fun and special place to gather.

I’ll also share:

 -My weekly meal planning worksheet and make sure you leave with plenty of copies

-My favorite websites and resources

-Everyday emergency recipes

-Tricks and Tools of the Trade

-And more!!

Here is what others are saying about this Meal Planning & Freezer Cooking Class:

Your planning sheet and grocery store list that I got at the meal planning class have been a huge help for me. I have such a great stockpile of meat that I now cook most of my meals from what I have on hand. These tools have been great! Last month, I was able to save $100 MORE from our grocery budget and I can't wait to see what I save this month! –RB

Just wanted to say thank you for the information shared at the meal planning class last night. I am still trying to process it all but am so excited to be able to implement several of the ideas into my crazy life ASAP. With a 2 ½ year old and 9 month old, I feel very blessed to have this information now because I know that our “stress/ excitement” level is only going to go up as they grow up. -MH

Thank you so much for all you do! Your Meal Planning class was such an encouragement to me (and to my family!) Not only do I have meals planned for this week (using your easy handout), but I also spent 30 LESS minutes in the grocery store! Thank you so much. I'd recommend this class to anyone! -BC

Thanks so much Su! My husband and I have a 9 month old so I was really interested in all your ideas for kids and trying food. I also liked your ideas for sharing around the dinner table as well. -SK

Thanks for the great class! The meal planning and grocery list worksheets were worth every penny of the class charge. -MR

There are still  4spots left in the class. Class fee is $20. If you would like to come, just shoot me an email at and I will get you on the class list and send you all the details.

I believe this Meal Planning and Freezer Cooking class is even more valuable than my couponing class. Everyone loves to save a buck and our culture values money. Unfortunately, connecting with family and friends over dinner is not high on our culture's priority list. But just like we are different with our grocery shopping, let's be different with how we fill the tummies in our house. You can so do this!!

  1. Hi Su
    I have just discovered your blog and I love it! Living in Australia we don't have a lot of coupons - especially in rural areas but that doesn't mean we can't save. We have Flybuys at one supermarket chain which I accumulate and the twice a year I redeem for gift cards to spend at that store. I can usually buy everything I need for Christmas - food, drinks, cards, wrapping paper etc with one of these cards.
    We live in the country so I have a big vegetable garden and orchard. We eat seasonally what is growing and I preserve, dry, freeze or make jams and pickles with the extra surplus. So we really eat out of the garden all year round.
    I always plan my weekly menus around what is in season. I often cook double quantities and put one in the freezer for those busy days 9and it saves on electricity which is soaring in cost here now.
    I make my own cakes, slices and cookies so I always know what goes into them. The same with pizzas - my family love homemade pizza with lots of veggies out of the garden.
    Another great tip is to barter with friends and neighbours. Someone always has a glut of something that can be traded for what you have. We got a bike for our son by supplying milk from our house cow for a few months. Clothes are always passed down, Books bought on market stalls do the rounds and then are retraded at the stalls for more.
    The list of ideas is endless - you hit the nail on the head when you called your blog the Intentional Home. You just have to think and act smarter in these tough times. Sharyn
