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.) *i also have even more free printable weekly meal planners – in 11 layouts and 6 different colors for each layout!*

here’s another meal planning template you can download for free! it basically has the same stuff as the one above, but uses a different layout. AND it makes it easier to plan out EVERY meal – breakfast, lunch, & dinner (B, L, D) so you won’t miss out on a single thing when you go shopping this week.

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!
Hi Shelley! I’ve sent you an email…
I wanted to do the same thing. Would it be possible to get a copy as well?
Thank you in advance!
Hi Shelli! I had emailed the other commenter just so that we didn’t have to continue our convo via the comments section 🙂
My email basically said that I don’t give out the raw files/templates. Thanks for understanding!

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!

Love your BLD meal planner, but is there any way to get it set up as a regular week; Sunday as the first day of the week? Thanks!
Thanks, Annette! Right now I’m swamped with other projects, but I may be able to switch it at some point. Thanks for the suggestion.
Thanks so much!
