Meal Planning

How many of you plan what you are going to eat each day ahead of time?

I know we don't do it too far in advance. A perhaps little known fact about us is that we (beyond the basics*) plan everything we eat around what is on sale. For example: whole chicken was on sale for 79 cents a pound? We roasted a chicken. How much in the way of leftovers we get effects what we eat the rest of the week.

So, for those of you who are better planners, does it work? Do you stick to it?

*Like flour, cocoa, milk, sugar, yeast, chocolate chips, butter, eggs all of which we stock up on as much as we can when they are on sale.
