Getting it Together - an ebook by Kayse Pratt

While reading some blogs the other day, I clicked on other bloggers that were referenced within those posts.  One of those bloggers was Kayse Pratt.

I signed up for Kayse's newsletter and was given a code to redeem for a free copy of her ebook, "Getting it Together."  I was able to complete this process within minutes.

The one page in this ebook that caught my eye was the one entitled "Monthly Meal Planning."  I printed this one out as soon as I saw it.

While doing my grocery list last Saturday before going shopping, I used this Monthly Meal Planning sheet to write down the meals for the month.  I liked how the dinners each have a date by them.  The breakfasts, lunches, and snacks each have a few lines each.  I hardly ever plan breakfasts or lunches out for the whole month.  I usually just buy what we normally eat and then go from there.

When Hubby and I went shopping, it was great to be able to reference this meal planner.  I could just glance down the list.

I have a couple of other meal planner sheets that I like.  I have found those helpful for planning out a week of meals at a time so that I can see what meals I still need to figure out and put onto the menu.

This monthly meal planning sheet worked well for me while shopping.  It allowed me (and Hubby) to see all of my meals on one page, plus snacks!

I would love to hear your thoughts on how you monthly menu plan!  Please share in the comments below.
