Here’s something to make life a little easier!
My Meal Planner!
I have everything I need to plan meals (even take out meals) with this new notebook set up just right for our family. Sometimes there are organizational gadgits for sale that are supposed to help you out, but they might not work just right for you and your family!
Take a look at what I did…
I started out with an old take out menu folder that was falling apart and a recipe book with recipes stuffed inside it in a not so organized fashion.
When you open my meal planner up there’s a great little pocket for extra recipe cards or coupons. This is a Post-It Pocket and I think it works out perfect for this spot!
Then I have a Menu page so that I can plan ahead. Tim made me the coolest pages in the perfect color! The month and days can be added along with your meals for the day.
There’s a shopping list right there to keep it all in one spot!
Now for the recipes!
I printed out blank recipe pages (that I designed) onto card stock paper. The card stock should help keep the pages nice and sturdy. I plan on keeping all my recipes in here to make meal planning easier. I took printouts and copies of recipes from my old book and glued them on the pages.
Then I used clear plastic sheet protectors for each menu and put them all neatly in a “Take Out” section in the back. Maybe it’s more like the “Last Resort ” section?””
This book is all I need to help keep my meals a little more organized and I should be able to find my favorite recipes for years and years! No more flipping through 3 or 4 cookbooks trying to find what I made a few weeks ago.

Recipes to Try
With all the new recipes that I’ve found through the Tasty Tuesday links, I thought I better get a little more organized!
Customize it to fit your family’s needs and save money by making it yourself.
