I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July weekend!!! I feel like I have been so busy with summertime activities, birthday parties, and BBQs that I have been slacking at meal planning, shopping and sticking to the plan. In an effort to once again focus on meal planning I created this weekly menu & shopping list free printable. I am a H U G E believer in meal planning!
By meal planning my family wastes less, we are more organized, we eat healthier dinners and I spend less at the grocery store keeping us on budget. There is nothing worse than the clock nearing 5 o’clock and you having no idea what you will be serving for dinner. If your kids are anything like mine they get HANGRY and you have NO time to spare!
There is one thing that never fails….dinnertime rearing its ugly head E V E R Y single day!
I searched high and low for a free printable to make my meal planning more efficient but couldn’t quite find one that fit my exact needs.
So when all else fails make your own! I came up with this simple yet efficient printable and decided to share it…
It helps you to not only plan what to serve each day… but get the shopping done with all the items on one list preventing you from duplicating items. Just make sure you give yourself a free day and/or a leftover day… we all deserve a break :).
I wish you the best of luck with meal planning….so far it has helped our family waste less, spend less, stay on track with healthy eating and have a plan and avoid the 5 o’clock Hangry games!
