Menu/Shopping Planner

This is a cool find!  I was surfing around, just looking at stuff, and came across this menu planner idea and tutorial by Paper Clutch.  CHECK THIS OUT!  She has a free printable menu and shopping planner and it is awesome.  Here is what I did with her design...

 I used some older papers I had, and Kraft cardstock for the book.  I had some 7Gypsies elastics that I used for binding and for closure of the book.  This way, I can remove and add pages as needed.  I haven't figured out what to title this yet, so the cover is still "blank".  If you have any ideas, let me know!
 I added an inner pocket.  I was thinking that recipe cards could go in here as I plan the menu and shopping lists.
 I printed up multiple pages, double sided, so that I have several weeks in the book.  This is showing the back accordion style pocket.  It is hard to tell, but I added a punched border in Kraft cardstock to the flap. Coupons go in here.
 Now, this is a neat idea!  I found these by accident at the craft store...super slim velcro closures just for scrapbooking projects!  You have to get these, they are AWESOME!
Okey dokey, now I am off to plan my menus!

Stay Crafty, my friends!
