I always think before I open the refrigerator to start cooking or even making sandwiches. I try to take eveyrthing out at 1 time that I will be using for that meal. That way I am not opening and closing the refrigerator a bunch of times.
It is easy to visualize chicken, mayo, butter, bread, soy sauce, milk, or whatever. It saves me a ton of time.

Want an easy way to: Clean out freezer Organize pantry Clean out cupboards Save a ton of money
Join a Pantry Challenge and eat down everything you have, stop eating out, homemade from scratch saves you so much money, calories, space, and organization. To save time and energy, use a crockpot which is very inexpensive electrically.
First, plan on cooking extra with the idea you will freeze some. This saves time and energy later, make you less apt to go for pizza, burgers, or take-out. You can eat healthier when you can control the ingredients. Second, if you are tempted to go back for seconds, or more, be sure you plan to portion that out for future meals as well. You could use these for lunches or dinners, possible even for breakfast sometimes.
