This free meal planning printable will help you get organized by planning out your family’s weekly meals.
You’re busy, you’re tired and you’re overwhelmed. The last thing you want to do when you get home from work is cook a big family meal.
But there isn’t a magic fairy who will come round and do it for you! (oh, if only….). But you can meal plan ahead of time to make your evenings easier, save money, and ensure your family is eating good healthy meals.
Meal planning is the only way to stay on top of the big monster that is the family evening meal. If you meal plan ahead of time you will:
Have more time in your day to do what you really want to do
Save money, because you know exactly what ingredients you need and will use, so you will waste less
Ensure that your family eats healthy, good meals
I have a great free download for you here – a printable Meal Plan sheet. You can download this sheet and plan all your meals for the coming week. Plus it has an added grocery list, so you can plan your meals and write all your ingredients needed out at the same time.
How to use the Meal Planning Printable
Write down the meals you have planned for your family in the column on the left. You can write out meal ideas here for every day of the week.
In the column on the right there is a shopping list. Write out all the ingredients you need for your meals that week.
Once you have completed the meal plan, written out your shopping list, shopped for ingredients, and possibly prepped meals ahead of time, you can display the meal plan prominently, so that your family always knows what for dinner.
The meal planning printable will help you always know what is for meals, and you can plan ahead and get far more organized.
