A while back I made a meal-planner. I liked the original design and it was working for me for a while, but I haven’t needed to plan breakfast or lunches as consistently anymore so I decided to redesign the planner and just include space for the dinner plan.
I printed the planner and trimmed it to 8×10, then found an empty frame hanging out in my stash. (Collecting inexpensive frames from thrift shops and yard sales is a weakness of mine!)
Now instead of printing the the meal plan every week, it’s reusable. Write directly on the glass with a whiteboard marker, and wipe off to use again next week.
Weekly meal planning has become a priority to me. When I have a plan, it saves me from wondering what to make when that “evil dinner hour” hits. It helps me stay on budget because I like to plan my meals around sales and coupons, and when I have a plan we are less likely to grab a pizza or run through the drive-through on a busy night.
