10 reasons why menu-planning is a good idea and a sample menu. by Pink Lemonade .. Patient Expert Posted Tue 08 Sep 2009 10:30pm I never used to plan my menus and when we were on a tight, tight budget sometimes we had some interesting combos near the end of the month (we were AF and paid once a month).
