Home Organization Binder ... The Sections: Menus

11.07.2011

We've come to the second part of my binder ... Menus!!

Well, it's been so long since I have posted because I have been messing with this section on how I want to get it set and what things I want in it! 


Would you believe after hours of searching for just the right grocery list or just the right menu planner, that I ended up finding something I was most comfortable with from a template in Microsoft Word ... no kidding!!  I did tweak it some, added some more columns, changed some subtitles, but I think I have what I want!  And I ended up with one single sheet of paper!!  No joke! 

I've made it available here for you to take a peek at!!

Once I have a chance to take some quick pics ... I'll post those too!




I am planning on making a similar Menu board as Jen from IHeart Organizing has for her kitchen ... so cute and so simple!! 

This is where I will post the menu meals planned, instead of having them tucked away in the binder, I want hubby and eventually the kiddos to be able to choose what they would like for dinner.  Plus, with my husband's schedule being so random, I don't plan meals for particular days!  I make a list of meals for a two-week period and then choose from there ... crossing off as we have them!  So ... I'm not sure how I will label my menu board ... maybe just cute bullet point shapes ... we'll see!  I'll post picks of my menu board when I finish up the project!

So literally ... this section ... for right now, is the grocery list in a page protector ... that's it!!  I'm sure it will change as I fully begin to use the binder ... but for now ... simplicity is key!!
