Meal Planning Printables and Tips

I am not ashamed to admit that one thing I am simply not good at is …. Meal Planning! I like to cook, I just don’t like planning all of it! So this school year I am going to attempt to work on this and I thought I would help you as well. Here is a collection of Meal Planning tips, tutorials, and printables

Menu Planning System

This Menu Planning system by The Homes I Have Made is just fabulous! She will show you how to both make it, and how she uses it! Love!

Now, I am a list maker, and this printable by Life in Yellow is great! She includes 4 days, to allow for leftovers and nights out! 

I am all for beautiful Meal Planning! This simple, but oh so functional, chalkboard weekly menu by Whipperberry will help answer the…”Mom, what’s for dinner?” question! And is becomes part of your home decor…bonus!

How cute is this menu board from Oh So Chichi! Love that you can rotate in new and favorites! The little pockets are perfect!

My children take their lunches to school and these fabulous printables by A Little Delightful  are perfect! My children are old enough to not only help me fill them out, but also to use these to allow them to pack their own! Sweet!

Finally, are you like me and need a total makeover? Well, I Heart Organizing will show you how she does it all! From organizing to planning! Sigh…

Weekly Menu Plan Printable

As I begin this task, I decided to create my own little printable for our family and for you too! This Weekly Menu Planner includes all three meals…breakfast,lunch, and dinner. It is very basic but will help me get a jump start! 

Seriously, there are so many options and ways to personalize your Menu Planning for your individual family. You can even bring out your creative side and make it a part of your home decor! 

So who is going to join me in attempting to become a better meal planner?
We hope that you will click on over to see the rest of this post!

I am a wife and mom to 2 fabulous children. My love for creating crafts, home decor, seasonal decor, and sewing has led me to my desire to share that with you here at Uncommon Designs.

  1. Wouldn’t that be wonderful…I’d love to be a better meal planner…I start it and then it falls to the wayside. I love all these ideas but starting out simple is the best option for me so I’ll be using your Weekly Menu Planner — thanks for this! Have a great Sunday!

  2. This is great!! I cook and bake all the time but am terrible at making a plan for it and these are a great assortment of tools. I’m following your great blog–I always stop by but didn’t realize I wasn’t a follower until today.

  4. Love the printable with the grocery list! I don’t think I could do a month at a time but a week at a time I could do!
