Our unique meal planner printable is designed especially for integrating principles like planned leftovers, cooking ahead for the freezer, and more. You'll also get our coordinating monthly and yearly calendars along with a weekly to-do planner.
The printable planner pages include a Weekly Planner on the right side and the Prep-Ahead Menu Planner on the left. The planner pages are designed to be printed double-sided which will result in the Weekly Planner being hole-punched on the left side of the page and the Menu Planner punched on the right side.
When your planner is open on your desk, the Weekly Planner page will be on the right, with the Prep Ahead Menu Planner and Grocery List on the left just as pictured above. The pages are all designed to fit in a standard 8 ½" x 11" three ring binder, and if you print the pages double-sided, your clip-off grocery list will be on the back of last week's To Do list. Another option is to take the pages to a copy center and have them spiral bound.
As you finish each week, copy any incomplete items from this week's To Do list onto the list for next week and clip your grocery list for next week off so you can start your week with all of the items you need for your menu plan.
