Free Menu Planner Printable


“What’s for dinner?”  I bet I get asked that question at least 42 times a week.  For some reason my family wants to eat every day.  Annoying, right?

Did I mention my husband is the type that likes to go to the store daily to get what we need for dinner?  Originally I tried to break him of that and shop for the week all at once, but I’ve found that unless we write out a menu plan it just doesn’t happen.

And of course with everything else we have going on writing out a menu is at the bottom of my list.  Which means we go to the store every day.  Which means the Kroger employees know me by name.  Which means I have to get better at planning in advance.

I’ve created these cute little weekly menu planners, complete with space for grocery lists, to help me with this.  I know some of you weirdos, like my husband, think that the new week starts on Monday… but for me my calendar week starts on Sunday.  And I know some of you weirdos, like me, prefer the boxes to look like a calendar, so I’ve created two different templates.

  1. Love the planners! I’m hoping to hear back from you about trading the Kindle Fire for your iPhone and portable DVD system. Unless I get a better offer tonight, I might take you up on it!

  2. Hey Cathy, thanks for visiting! I just e-mailed you back about the Kindle. I would love to trade! :)

  3. What a great set of printables!! Thank you! Finding the right thing to make and stick to it is what our family needs. Every day its a constant question– what’s for dinner, lunch or snack. AGH!! Thanks for linking up with me!! I’m your newest follower!! xoxo

    • Thanks girl! I feel ya- my favorite is “what’s for dinner” followed with “ok, then can I have a snack?” haha I’m so glad my daughter loves yogurt & fruit because that’s my go-to snack

    So cute! I get asked what’s for dinner all the time. I ended up making a dry erase menu board. I wish I’d had these first, I would have put them in the frame!

  5. Oh that is an awesome idea, I can’t believe I never thought of doing that. Thanks for sharing the free templates! This would definitely be very helpful, I have a tendency to mull over what is for dinner and can never decide. Haha! Thanks for sharing :)

    • You’re welcome! I know exactly what you mean, and then for me it’s always so much easier to decide to “pick something up” instead… this has really helped save us time AND money! Thanks for stopping by!

    Thank you so much for the menu planner/shopping list! This will help me so much using from my “stash” when planning my meals for the week. I can make my menu,list what I need and check off what I have so I don’t buy duplicates and only buy what’s needed. Also will post on fridge so I don’t have to answer “what’s for dinner?”…Thanks again!! :)

    Having a plan for the week helps for sure. I always say I am going to make a menu plan, but never actually do it. Your printables look great and actually make me want to plan a weekly menu!
