Get Your Menu Planned—FREE Worksheets Inside

Are you ready to start planning your meals?  You can do it!  Here are two worksheets to make planning your meals easier.

For Complete Weekly Menu Plans

Simple Weekly Meal Planning Worksheet: This worksheet will allow you to plan one full week worth of breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.

For each day you can write in your planned meal for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as noting what snack is on the list for the day.

This meal planning worksheet will work best for Moms who want to plan all of their meals and are either home with younger children or homeschooling.

For Monthly “Just Dinner” Plans

A Month of Dinners Planning Worksheet: Just want to plan dinner time meals?  Try this worksheet with space for one full month worth of dinners.

This meal planning worksheet is great if you’re new to menu planning and just want to plan dinners, or if you’re a working mom or have kids in government or private school and don’t need to plan lunches.

Some Tips to Help You

For the monthly plan, begin by filling in numbered days for the month you’ll be using this planning worksheet.

Next, fill in each box with a dinner idea. You might do a weekly Mexican, Italian, soup, vegetarian, pizza, or other theme nights to make planning easier. Invite family members to request their favorite meals or dishes. If you know Mondays are generally super busy, plan a crockpot or freezer (cooked ahead) meal for that evening. Or you might assign one night each week to your spouse or older children.

Once your dinner plan is complete, compare the meals to what you’ve got on hand and then create a grocery list. You can shop a week at a time or a month at a time.

With your plan and list you’ll be sure to have everything on hand you need and not be scrambling to figure out what to cook or which ingredients you can substitute for something else so you don’t have to rush to the store to finish dinner.

You can save either (or both) worksheets to your computer and print off as many copies as you need for personal use.  These files are in PDF format.  If you need a free PDF viewer you can download one at http://get.adobe.com/reader/
