Free Meal Planning Printables
Quick tip: Laminating your printables is an easy way to save on ink. Self-laminating sheets make this very easy to do. Then– All you’ll need is a dry erase marker to reuse them!
Weekly Meal Planner with Grocery List
A weekly meal planner with grocery list template is one of my favorite meal planning printables.
This one 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.
Weekly Menu Planner
Are you meal planning more than just your dinners or want a weekly menu for your fridge? The weekly menu planner has space for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks.
Grocery List by Category
A shopping list that’s organized by category will make your grocery trip much easier.
This has separate categories for household items, dairy, beverages, pantry items, meat/fish, frozen foods, produce, and an “other” category for any misc. items you need.
Monthly Meal Planning Calendar
Once you’ve been meal planning for a while, you might see that you’d rather plan your meals by the month so that you only have to think about it once per month.
A monthly meal planning calendar/monthly menu planner can help you do this. I left this one undated so that you don’t have to worry about it expiring.
Family Favorites Tracker
The secret sauce for fast and easy meal planning? Having a list of tried-and-true favorites to pull ideas from.
Use the favorite meals tracker for the meals you struggle the most to plan.
For example, if you’ve found that it takes you forever to plan your dinners for the week, 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.
As simple as it sounds, this tip alone can shave hours off your meal planning time because you won’t be starting from scratch every time you sit down to plan.
Instead of flipping through recipe books or scrolling through Pinterest to find a certain recipe, you can copy your favorites onto recipe cards for quick an easy access.
For recipe cards, I recommend printing on cardstock because it’s sturdier than regular paper.
Rather keep your favorite recipes on your phone? You can create a digital recipe box with the Cozi app!
