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 of this free menu planner.

Feel free to print these off and use them for personal use. Pin them now to remind you to start fresh next week. I hope they help you plan ahead and conquer the daily battle of “what’s for dinner.”

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!

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!! :)
