Y'all know me and my organized chaos. I found a ton of the menu planners (super cute) that planned each day of the week. Our life doesn't work that way. We have a routine, but that routine stays flexible.
I needed something where I could plan enough food for the week, but I wasn't stuck to a messy planning page because I had to move things around.
Sometimes I planned to grill outside, then cold wet weather came through and we decided to make chili instead, ya know?
I created this, and it simplified my life so much! I have a plan at the store, so I'm not randomly buying 800 things I don't need and I can't make a meal when I get home.
This guy works. I plan a weeks worth of food, and when we make something, we just cross it off the list. All my kids cook, so if they're gonna take over dinner one night they can look at the list and know what options they have. We are a homeschool family, so Home-Ec has been a big part of their life since they could stand!
Happy planning y'all!
