Meal Planning Printables

I have come to LOVE meal planning.  I learned how much I loved it this week when I caught the nasty cold that the rest of my family has already had.  I was able to quickly assemble my meals and head back to bed.

Once a week I sit down and plan out a week's worth of meals.  I look at those meals and write on my shopping list page the ingredients I need to get.  Both of those pages then go into a page protector and in my menu/coupon binder.  Since they are in the page protector I can keep it and re-use that plan a month or so later and I already have my shopping list to grab!  I use a dry erase marker on the page protector to cross out items as I shop.   Keep an eye out for a blog tour of this binder, where I will explain more how I use these pages.  In the mean time, here are my meal planning pages that you are welcome use.  I have made available a one week page, a two week page, as well as my shopping list.  Share, print and enjoy!

Be sure to come back each Monday where I share my own weekly plan which includes a shopping list for you to follow!  Don't forget to subscribe to Mommy's Time to receive the weekly meal plans in your RSS feed or email.

  1. Reusing menu plans and shopping lists is the way to go! Anything to simplify, I say. I'm working on a 6 week rotating plan myself. We'll see how I like that. :)
