There are many things that I am just not good at. Laundry, specifically putting my laundry away, tops my list. My closet is incredibly embarrassing. I’d show you a picture, but I can’t bring myself to let everybody know the extent of my issues in the closet. My poor grandmother would be horrified.

Bookkeeping is also a nemesis of mine as I would rather stick red-hot pokers in my eyes than detail and categorize expenses in Quickbooks. Good grief, my anxiety is through the roof just thinking about how far behind I am in my bookkeeping right now. Glass of wine me – stat!

Apparently I’m incredibly lacking in all things wifely because I also am 100% unable to plan meals and build shopping lists. Oh I can fake it pretty well at this point, but when dinner time rolls around, I may be just as likely to declare a “fend for yourself night” over trying to piece together a healthy meal with the random assortment of edible goodies that did make or list or more likely were an impulse item at the grocery store. Ah my poor family. Oh well we can’t be good at everything right?

Enter PlateJoy – my newest meal planning savior! I owe somebody HUGE for coming up with this idea allowing me to maintain my with-it motherly facade!

PlateJoy Review:

Your ingredients are automatically entered into a shopping list that remembers what you have in your pantry.

You can then send the list to an online grocery delivery service in many cities or print the list and take it your grocery store.
