Quick tip for using free printables

I love printables as much as the next person, but I’ll admit they can drain your ink if you’re printing often. Laminating your printables is an easy way to make your ink last a lot longer.

Self-laminating sheets make this very easy to do. All you’ll need is a dry erase marker to reuse them!

Printable Recipe Card Templates

Weekly Meal Planner Template with Grocery List

A weekly meal planner with grocery list template is one of my favorite meal planning printables.

This design makes it super easy to get a grocery list together because you can jot down the ingredients you need as you’re planning your meals for the week.

And once you’re finished, cut or tear off your grocery list and head to the store.

Monthly Meal Planning Calendar

Once you’ve been meal planning for a while, you may see that you’d rather plan your meals by the month rather than weekly.

A monthly meal planning calendar/monthly menu planner can help!

I left this one undated so you don’t have to worry about it expiring. 🙂

Family Favorites Tracker

Keeping track of your family’s favorite meals is one of my biggest meal planning tips for busy moms.

If you’ve found that it takes you forever to get a plan together for the week, a family favorites tracker will help simplify the process.

All you need to do is set aside a few minutes to sit down and brainstorm some of your family’s current favorites.

When you try a new recipe/meal that’s a winner, add it to your list.

It’s much easier to come up with a plan when you have a list to pull ideas from that you know everyone will actually eat.
