No one thinks they have enough time in the day! Do all your cooking in one batch on the weekend. Make enough for lunch and dinner for 5 or 6 days of the week. This free's up a TON of time in the week, and leaves you with one "play" day to eat something different.
Involve the family to make this more fun. Get the kids in the kitchen and involved in picking and shopping their meals. Make bigger batches and freeze them, so you can be prepared for weekends when the unexpected happens and you can't cook! This makes SP tracking a TON easier too!

If you live a busy schedule like me this may help a lot with time management. Grouping some of your favorite meals has a couple of benefits. One, time management. Two, the grouping becomes a recipe holder. Three, its quicker than looking through your favorites.
In a time management course that I took my first semester of college, we were taught to only touch it once. When the bill comes in, pay it now. When the children bring homes notices that need your signature, sign it now. RSVP as soon as you get the invitation. And so forth. A great time saver!
