I have also been wanting to plan out my menus and get more organized about shopping and dinner planning. We have recently changed from a low carb diet to a Mediterranean/lower carb type of diet, and it has really changed what we are eating. I need some help to get my brain readjusted to it. I came upon this GREAT idea by Ursula, here at her blog, Home Made by Carmona. IT TOTALLY ROCKS! Here, let me show you.
That's mine in a nutshell. It's an awesome system. I love that you can move things around at will and rearrange and reuse everything. It took a little bit to set it up, but now it's totally piece of cake to use. I pulled out the weekly meal plan page, went through my categories and matched what I bought at the store. As I go, I will figure out what I want for the rest of the week and make a shopping list accordingly. I'm thinking Spaghetti Squash Boats are in my future. I am going to add some paper for lists so that everything is in one place.
GO CHECK OUT HER BLOG!!! She has the post, a video explaining the system, and all of the printables you need. I think you'll like it!
Stay crafty, my friends!
