Freebie: Weekly Menu Planner Download

Does anyone else hate that time of day, around 4:30pm, when you have to start thinking about what to make for dinner? By that time it's too late to start something too labor intensve because the kids have already begun the downward spiral that continues until bedtime. So, you need dinner asap!

How much easier would it be if we just planned ahead?! I think that might be the story of my LIFE!

To give us all a little boost... I created this cute weekly menu planner.



With a spot for the date of the week at the top, and spaces for not only each meal of the day, but two snacks this printable is perfect if you are like me and have little ones who aren't in school.... or for yourself! It's been said many times that it's healthier for us to eat a couple smaller meals throughout the day. Even if you are a hard workin' mama, you should still treat your body right... so... plan some healthy snack food for YOU!


Here's a great organizing tip! Fill out a couple of these ahead of time and number them weeks #1-4 (or 5 or 6). Then file them away. When it comes time to plan the menu for the week, just grab one of your pre-created menus and you save yourself some time! Plus, if you fill the menu in with meals you KNOW your family loves then you are ready for the week!

Use it to create a recipe binder! Print out a couple menus, fill them out, and stick the recipes for each meal behind it's corresponding menu. No more digging around for grandma's meatloaf recipe.... or how to make Chex Mix.

  2. THANK you for this beautiful meal planner. I've been searching all over the web for a meal planner that is weekly and includes two snacks, since I have a 2 year old at home. This one is perfect AND it's cute to boot. Awesome.
