meal planning template

i love menu and meal planning. it makes shopping so much easier, and having it written out on the fridge so everyone knows what we’re eating every night is so much better than hearing “what are we having for dinner?” over and over again. it also helps me to know what kind/how much meat to pull out of the freezer to defrost in the fridge the night before.

since i happen to love sharing as much as i do meal planning, here’s a free printable meal planning template for you all. (click the link below the graphic.)

  1. Hi Katie

    This menu planner is great! I was wondering what program you used to create it. I simply wanted to add a few lines so I could clearly separate Breakfast, lunch and supper. if you had a soft copy that you could send that would be fantastic. Thanks so much and Merry Christmas!

  2. Hi Katie, thank you for putting this up for moms like me who have a lot of people to feed everyday. Could you send the program you used so I can add space to Sundays as that day is like Thanksgiving every Sunday at our home.
    Have a good day!

  3. I’m just getting into meal planning, this is very helpful! Pinning now :-)
