One of the kids – I will not say who, so I don’t embarrass them – has a bit of a memory problem when it comes to personal care. Then again, proper personal care includes a lot of steps for someone just learning how to take care of themselves. We decided the best way to help them out is with a dry erase checklist….
After taking a look at our monthly spending, I was horrified to see how much we spend on groceries. It’s so easy when you own a business directly next to a grocery store in a super small town, but those quick and little purchases add up FAST. Great for convenience, horrible on the checking account.
The solution we came up with was a menu plan and grocery list combined. I’m still “old fashioned” and like my pen and paper when it comes to making lists. Sorry, I just don’t care to type out my list on any digital device. Although I did design the template on the computer, and have found it SUPER easy to print out just before I go shopping.
We started with a monthly menu plan, which did work for the most part. The end of the month got a little stretched, though, so we switched to a 10-day plan. This actually covers about 2 weeks worth of meals and snacks for us. It also limits our shopping trips to about twice a month, ultimately saving us from too many in-store impulse buys yet still leaving room for changes in the menu.
Since this has been so successful for us, I thought it only right to share with everyone. Click on the picture below, save to your computer, and print off on a sheet of cardstock or other heavier paper. We fold ours in half, so the grocery list is on one side and the meals on the other. It’s easy to stick in my purse, but then still stash it in the kitchen when we bring our groceries home.
The term “free” probably sings to you the same way it does me. You can’t go wrong with free!
These free printable recipe cards were made a few years ago, but are still just as popular now as they were then. Each of these cards are 3×5. Simply click on the image of the card you like the best, or simply right click and choose “save as” to save the image. Print from your own computer on any kind of paper you’d like, although I would recommend printing the recipe cards on card stock. You may also want to use a lamination of some sort to protect the cards.
