Fresh and Organized Meal Planner Review and Giveaway

I had the opportunity to review a printable from Fresh and Organized. Monica, so graciously sent me a Weekly Meal Planner.

This is a LIFESAVER! I mean it too. Before I had this, most nights about a half hour before supper time, I'd be meandering through the kitchen trying to figure out what to feed my family. Most nights, it would be spaghetti (oh so easy) or Bupper (what my husband like to call Breakfast for Supper.) So, you know, not the healthiest meals.

However, with this planner I've come up with a system to feed my family that's not all carbs thrown together at the last minute. On Fridays, when I get all the grocery store flyers, I go through what is on sale. After I see what is priced best, I go to allrecipes.com and search recipes by the ingredients. Then I fill it in the meal planner. So easy! There is even a side bar to add your grocery list to.

I do plan on laminating my meal planner and use a dry erase marker to cut down on the amount of paper we use. We'll probably use 2 so that we can plan the next week's menus while still using the current week's.

Fresh and Organized has so much more than meal plans too! Her shop is filled with awesome printable to make your life more organized.
