I am so excited to share my meal plan system with you. If you only do one thing to be more organised, it has to be to a meal plan, I promise they are worth their weight in gold.
I finally had enough and decided to make the meal plan to envy all meal plans.
First I went through all our recipes and collected everything that we eat regularly, would like to eat regularly and new recipes to try. Then I made a list of all the recipes and their ingredients, I think we ended up with about 60!
I used Microsoft Word to make a table and put the name of the recipe on one side, and all the ingredients used on the other side. I also made another smaller table for sides. I included take out and ‘whatever’ cards as well.
I used different coloured card stock to print out the recipes then cut them up into little cards.
I found this great magnetic tape in the scrapbooking section of Big W. I had to cut it in half so it wasn’t so wide then stuck a piece to the back of each card.
What do you think so far? Come back tomorrow to see part 2 of my Meal Planning Board.
