daily menu

most people think i'm super organized - the reality is i'm super lazy and have a horrible short term memory. just ask my husband. if it isn't written down it doesn't get done and i'd rather sit and read a book than grocery shop.

one way i've simplified my life is writing out a weekly dinner menu - usually on thursday. then i go to the grocery store just once a week and buy groceries. it also makes dinner time easier because i know what we are having so there is no thought involved. see lazy!

anyhow, here's a free printable weekly menu planner - i'm printing out a few and hanging them on the fridge. i figure i can add meal ideas throughout the week. go me!

What a fabulous idea! I am the world's worst wannabe when it comes to organization... maybe this is a good starting point for me.

I do the exact same thing and even on the same day, Thursday! Those forms are really cute!

me too, girl! except i'd rather be sewing ;)
when i shop week-to-week (sometimes i'll do OAMC), i do the same thing for the menu!
those forms are awesome!

You are not lazy

Seriously, I learned this from watching my mom manage a home and a career!
