House Manager: Weekly Meal Planner

Jayna’s new catch phrase is “Speaking of _______….” and she will insert something random, that no one was talking about.  So.

Speaking of planning out meals, here’s something I whipped up to {hopefully} help!

House Manager: Meal Planner Template from Palmettos and Pigtails

This little gem will be part of our House Manager, but I love how functional {and pretty!} it is, so I plan on using it more on my fridge than in my house binder!  Do you need an example?

House Manager: Meal Planner Example from Palmettos and Pigtails

Now, we subscribe to Emeals  {and LOVE it}, which means we get 7 meal plans based on Publix’s sales emailed to us each week.  So I just input those meals into this weekly meal planner template and viola!  I have my meal list AND my grocery list in one place!  I love that it has a shopping list for staples {which I add to as soon as something gets a little low so I can start looking for coupons}, and then a regular grocery list too.

Notice above too, that my days of the week don’t match up.  That’s because I knew we had choir on Wednesday {and would be eating at church} and that we would be going out on Saturday as well.  So, I just skipped those days and extended my meal plans into next week!

Here’s a blank copy.  You can click on any of these pictures to get to my document to print.  Please feel free to PIN and SHARE on Facebook!

Here’s my little disclaimer:

Because I’m making these for my own personal use, I’m gonna give you access to the files, but unfortunately, you won’t be able to edit them.  But feel free to print them out and use them for your own personal use!  I got all the little buttons as free downloads from the digital scrapbooking site, Shabby Princess.  And I got the fonts (Pea Johanna) from Kevin & Amanda…also free.  So technically, you can make your own version of these as well!  And if you decide to pin them, please link them back here!! Thanks!

What section should I work on next?  Do I need to add anything?

  4. LOVE this format, Shara! Meal planning is something I’m trying desperately to get better at, but … not doing very well. I need to print out your template and USE it!
