Simple printables to help you make meal time easy.
The two things I get asked about the most is how to save money and how to meal plan. And not surprisingly, these two things go hand-in-hand.
When my husband and I were first married there were two things I had to learn very well. He was working part-time and going to school, and after that, he was a teacher and still in school. Learning to meal plan to save money was essential.
It helped us save a lot of money over the years of grocery shopping. I was even able to cut our budget by around 25% while switching to an organic diet!
I've meal planned many different ways over the years but recently created printable sheets that I really like using. After being asked to share them I decided I should.
These meal planning printables will help you save money and meal plan, no matter what stage of life you are in!

One thing I like to do to save money grocery shopping is only grocery shopping once a month. When grocery shopping once a month you have to stay organized.
Having a good set of printables in a home management binder, planner, or even in a folder can really help you stay on top of everything for grocery shopping and meal planning.
Being organized is also essential for saving money. If you know what you have on hand you won't overbuy, if you have a meal plan you will have the correct food on hand, and these printables help you stay on track and organized.
With all of this in mind, I created a meal planning printable pack that contains my essentials for planning for my monthly grocery shopping trips. While I shop monthly these printables can be used no matter how often you grocery shop.
In the planner, you will find-
- Monthly Meal Planning Sheet
- Weekly Meal Planning with Shopping List Sheets (Monday or Sunday Start Day)
- Fridge Inventory Sheet
- Freezer Inventory Sheet
- Pantry Inventory Sheet
- Shopping List
- Add to Shopping List (perfect for putting on your fridge!)
- Favorite Recipes (makes meal planning faster!)
Since this planner is printable you can print as many of each sheet as you need or skip ones you won't use. It's very customizable. I believe the best planner is one you can easily change to make it work for you, that's what I kept in mind while creating this meal planning printable pack. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do!
