Meal planning and writing shopping lists (lack of doing them, that is) was always a weakness of mine. But I’ve finally found something that works for me. Actually, my daughter, Christina, designed something that works for me! I used the meal planner and shopping list in 2016 from her Ultimate Health and Fitness Planner. For 2017, she’ll have the Ultimate Health and Fitness Planner, which includes the meal planner and grocery shopping list. And she has a separate Meal Planner for 2017 with the fillable meal planner and shopping list that I use and love.
Meal Planner 2017 by Christina Chitwood
I’m online for most of my day, so a planner I write in doesn’t really work for me. Luckily, Christina designed her Ultimate Health and Fitness Planner and the Meal Planner (and grocery shopping list) to be fillable on your computer.
In the Meal Planner 2017, you’ll get 52 fillable weekly meal planners and 52 fillable grocery shopping lists.
You can still fill in the planner on your computer and then print it out. Or you can just print it out and write in your information.
What I do is fill in the meal planner on my computer. Then I fill in my grocery shopping list for the week, take a photo of it with my iPhone, and take my iPhone to the grocery store when I go shopping. It’s amazingly easy! You can save everything on your computer, so you’ll have it for reference throughout the year.
30-Day Challenge – Weekly Meal-Planning Challenge
If you follow my blog, you know I love 30-day challenges for getting things done and starting new habits. I used a 3o-day challenge last winter to start the habit of weekly meal planning. You could use a 30-day challenge if you’re not used to meal planning. Planning meals for the week is a good way to eat healthier and save money, so this is a great challenge to do.
