Weekly Meal Planner
If you’ve never used a weekly meal planner, you don’t know what you’re missing. I was really into it for awhile and loved coming up with all kinds of new meal planning ideas every week. Unfortunately, life got really busy and I fell off the wagon. I stopped planning and felt the stress of having to plan too many last minute dinners. Now that the new year is here, I want to turn that around.
Planning ahead just makes me feel more organized, especially when I use this meal planner template. On Sunday morning, I put together my meal planning ideas for the week and make a grocery list. Then (ideally) I only make one trip to the grocery store the entire week. I may end up going in for something small at some point but it’s not the almost daily trips I make when I’ve done no planning ahead of time.
Feel free to join me in getting organized for the new year with my weekly meal planner template! It’s always more fun when I’m not doing it alone…
You can even let the kids help! Give them each a day where they plan their own menu for the day. It’ll be fun for them to be in charge and it’s one less day that you have to plan. I’m all about letting them do the work!
