Mason Jar Meal Planning

I have a special guest for y’all today.  Laura with Laura Bray Designs is here with some fabulous advice on how to use mason jars for meal planning.  I love creating freezer meals for my family and I can’t believe I have never thought to use jars for my meals!  Read along below for her advice.

In an attempt to save time, money, and my sanity, I’ve developed the habit of planning out my family’s dinners for the week. It’s a housekeeping habit that has made a huge difference in my stress levels. Today, I’ll show you how I use mason jar storage as an important part of my meal planning process. An important part of making meal planning easy is to cook double recipes for meals that freeze well. If I’m going to make homemade tomato soup, it’s just as easy to make a double batch as it is a single and then I have the joy of knowing I’ve got a quick, homemade meal sitting in my freezer waiting for me.

  Masno jar meal planning -- use mason jars in your freezer to store ready to serve meals that will be ready in minutes!
