The first few weeks of a new school year can be CRAZY. Regardless of how or where you’re schooling, it’s tough to get back into the swing of the school routine. Between pick-ups, activities, and homework sessions, afternoons/evenings require a special kind of adjustment.
Which means you need a dinner solution that will ease the transition. And I have just the thing!
I wrote a meal guide a couple of years ago to help moms (or parents, in general) feed their families well in less time, with less energy, for less money. It’s called The Every Mom’s Meal Solution Handbook: A Comprehensive Guide to Feeding Your Family Well in Any Season, Budget, or Lifestyle, and it is perfect for times of transition such as the return to school.
Here are 7 ways The Every Mom’s Meal Solution Handbook can help ease your back-to-school dinners:
7 Ways The Every Mom’s Meal Solution Handbook Can Ease Your Back-to-School Dinners
Want to know what The Every Mom’s Meal Solution Handbook can do for you? Among other things, here are seven ways it can ease your life and make back-to-school dinners better, easier, and MUCH less stressful!
The Every Mom’s Meal Solution Handbook…
1. Teaches you how to meal plan in a way that works for YOU
My #1 tip for getting a decent dinner on the table when life gets wild is to plan for it. You know how bananas that hour before dinner can get, so don’t wait to figure out what you’re making when you’re in the middle of crazytown!
Having a tentative plan, at least, calms the crazy and significantly decreases the probability of emergency fast food runs.
But every mom is different, every family is different, and every season is different. That’s why there’s no one-size-fits-all for meal planning!
Working from that premise, The Every Mom’s Meal Solution Handbook doesn’t simply prescribe a meal planning method, but rather guides you in creating plans that work for your family and lifestyle.
2. Shows you how to simplify your meals
If I could shout one message from my rooftop when it comes to dinner, it would be that it does not have to be fancy to be good! (It doesn’t even always have to be good, for that matter. Fueling our bodies is the point. But being yummy sure does make it more fun!)
TEMMSH shows you how to simplify your meals to save time, energy, and money WITHOUT sacrificing quality and taste.
3. Provides easy meal ideas and shows you where to find new inspiration
Let’s be honest, half the battle (at least!) of making dinner is coming up with what to make night after night, week after week.
TEMMSH guides you in building a repertoire of recipes your family loves; offers easy ideas for breakfast, lunch, and dinner; and shows you where to turn for fresh inspiration. You’ll never be at a loss for ideas again!
4. Equips you to juggle last-minute schedule disruptions
It takes a few weeks to settle into a new routine, especially if extracurricular activities are involved. So, you can expect some bumps along the way that may put a crimp in your dinnertime plans.
Add to that the inevitable, “Hey, can so-and-so come over tonight?” and “Oh, I forgot to tell you…”, and you’re going to have to be flexible when it comes to school year meals.
TEHMMSH not only teaches tons of great strategies for making dinner, it also shows you how to beef up your back-up game for those times when your meal plans go awry.
5. Is filled with valuable time-saving hacks
The school year gets B-U-S-Y. Carpooling and activities, homework and family time, and lesson plans, if you’re homeschooling. So, you don’t have time to spend hours in the kitchen. I get it! Most of us don’t have that luxury even without back-to-school craziness.
That’s why I filled The Every Mom’s Meal Solution Handbook with TONS of valuable time-saving hacks, so you can spend your precious time on what matters most.
6. Guides you in stocking your kitchen so you always have a dinner option
How many times have you wanted to make dinner, but had nothing in your house to cook? Prevent that from ever happening to you again by learning how to effectively stock your pantry and freezer!
Having a well-stocked kitchen not only prepares you for whatever unexpected surprises may come your way, it also saves you money and makes meal planning easier.
The Every Mom’s Meal Solution Handbook guides you in this process, explaining how to stock up and what to stock up on for your family’s particular needs.

7. Offers tons of money-saving tips and tricks
Back-to-school shopping is expensive. (SO expensive!) So, I bet your budget could use a little rest and reprieve right about now. TEMMSH has an entire chapter (and then some) devoted to tips for saving money on groceries. In fact, it has so many strategies, you’ll probably save the cost of the book on your first grocery run!
Every family is unique in its mix of personalities, seasons, and lifestyles. So, what works well for one family may not work for another. That’s why I wanted to create a guide that would give you the tools you need to create systems that work for you — your season, your lifestyle, your family.
If that sounds like something you could use — especially in this crazy back-to-school transition! — I encourage you to check out The Every Mom’s Meal Solution Handbook.
