{NEW RELEASE} Weekly Menu Planners!

 

I hate the 5 o'clock "what's for dinner" panic and have been REALLY excited to get these done so I can be more motivated to plan ahead.  Let's face it.  If it's cute, I'm more likely to use it and so far I am LOVING this new printable... probably my favorite collection so far! 


I've got my October one framed and already in use at my house and it's working like a charm!  I've had a much smoother transition from the homework rush to dinner this week and I don't feel nearly as frazzled.  I left room for dessert/snack suggestions - as well as designed a space for attaching a post-it note pad for your shopping list.




TIP:  I don't really like dry erase markers on projects like this... they aren't very bright and they smudge easily.  Whether you decide to frame your planners or laminate, I recommend using "wet erase" markers (I bought mine at Staples).  They are crisper, almost like a Sharpie and it doesn't wipe off unless your cloth is damp.  LOVE IT!!

For now, I'm releasing a Fall Bundle with Sept/Oct/Nov/Dec planners.  I'll release a second set as we get closer to January.  For super easy storage, just print them all off and keep them inside the frame... then just swap them out as the months go by!

These are perfect!!! I like to involve my girls a little in planning the menu. They each get to pick one meal a week, it is amazing that it isnt the same thing over and over!!

So excited to put these to good use! Thanks for being so on the ball....maybe a little planning will help me save on my monthly grocery bill. thanks

Just a question. I clicked the link yesterday when there was still the freebie link and I saved it to a yousendit.com file storage place but when I went to download it today it wouldn't let me because it said the file download had been reached. Can I do anything about this or not?

Thanks,
Janet

Miranda said...

Are the rest of the months available for download as well? Think you'll come out with a bundle package with the whole year? I think my family will fight for this at our family reunion auction!

Colette said...

Hi, Miranda... I am planning to release the rest of the months in 2 additional 4 month sets. I'm planning to have the next set available within the next month or so. I'm so glad you like them! :)

Robyn said...

Yes, please release the rest of them! I have a couple people who would LOVE these as a Christmas gift!

Lacie said...

I am loving my menu planners. So to my older kids who can read. I don't head this..."mom, what's for breakfast/dinner?", every 20 minutes :-). Since mornings are so crazy in our house I printer double copies so I have one for breakfast too. They are awesome :-)

These are so cute! I especially like Decembers. I can't wait for the festiveness of Thanksgiving and Christmas!
