Sean and I are pretty good about planning our weekly menus in advance. We go grocery shopping every Saturday and we buy enough groceries to make meals for 6 nights during the week. Sometimes it’s hard to be inspired or come up with new meals to make, so there are a lot of repeat offenders. But, maybe it’s because I don’t have anything to write my meal planning down on.
Well, I found this on Ollibird:
You can download this PDF for free, here
So you’re thinking “Great, so now I have this, but I don’t want to have print one out each week, that’s a huge waste of paper.” Yes, I agree, but don’t worry I have an idea. On Paper n Stitch I found this dry erase board tutorial:
Materials: 1. Picture frame with glass or plexi insert (Ribba frame from IKEA) 2. Fabric or paper scraps 3. Heavy duty tape 4. Dry erase markers
Step by Step How To: 1. Remove everything from the frame (paper, mat, backing) except for the glass. 2. Cut a piece of fabric slightly larger than your frame backing (about an extra 2 inches all the way around). Whether your backing is hardboard or cardboard, this tutorial will work, so don’t worry. 3. Place cut fabric over frame backing and then flip over. 4. Fold over excess fabric and then, using heavy duty tape, attach the fabric to your backing. 5. Place the now fabric-covered frame backing into the frame and you are all done! You are ready to write notes all over your pretty dry erase board.
She used it for writeable art:
But you can also use it for your menu planning by just inserting that free template in the frame instead. Happy menu planning! 🙂
