Weekly Menu Planner

First I have a printable planner with the days of the week. You can plan up to 5 weeks on one label sheet. You see I designed my planner with removable label weeks. Then each week you just peel off the plan and put it onto my weekly menu sheet.You then have a place to drop in a shopping list for your week’s worth of meals.For this sheet, I am using OL7000WX labels from OnlineLabels. Then you can print the weekly menu sheet on plain copy paper.

The download also includes my free recipe cards that print onto an OL450WX label from OnlineLabels.You can then just peel these labels and stick them to a plain 4 x 6 index card wrapping under the extra height. I love these little recipe cards for organizing my massive stack of recipes.

The recipe cards can be added to 4 x 6 index cardholders that will also go great in a binder. You will have an organized recipe area in no time at all.

All printables you provided are so great. Thanks so much for sharing.
Hubs and I don’t really plan as we just go by what we’re doing, if we’re going anywhere or just have a quick easy meal, more spontaneous for sure. I did print out the recipe cards however, they’re great and will be very helpful.
I’m sure many people will have need of the whole system and use happily.
Happy New year
