I had a system I used to plan out my grocery trips, sitting down before I head to the store and planning my meals for the week and adding the ingredients to the list. Recently I realized I needed to tweak it a bit because I was forgetting to add things that I realized I needed during the week so the practice of sitting down to make the list all in one sitting wasn’t working. To fix the problem I created a printable meal planner and grocery list all in one that I can keep handy in the kitchen all week long!
This printable helps me to plan not just dinners but all the meals my family will eat for the week. I can also add items to the list for my next trip as I realize I need them. It also helps when I’m scrambling to figure out what’s for dinner each night-just reference the shopping list from my last trip and voila-problem solved!
I’ve been really trying to plan my breakfasts and lunches lately as well as snacks so I included all of those on the printable. Planning what I’m eating all day helps keep me on track with healthy options (hello bathing suit season!) and keeps me from getting bored with the same old meals week after week.
