I have finally recouped from my amazing time at the SNAP conference in Utah this past weekend. I am always so grateful when I go to those conferences because it is so wonderful to network with other like-minded bloggers and talk about issues that pertain to our niche…oh and act like middle school girls at summer camp in a photo booth! – Thanks Homes.com and ForRent.com.
So I started putting away all the free stuff from the swag bag and sponsor booths. There was a company called Poppy Seed Projects that gave a laminated dry erase menu planner/weekly planner if you stopped by their booth. It looks like it is $7.95 on their site. I desperately need to start planning my meals better. I do the 5:00 “oh-crap-what-are-we-having-for-dinner” dance every night. With summer coming I know I get even more laid back with planning dinner. If I don’t get my act together stat my kids are going to live on cereal for dinners….they totally wouldn’t mind.
I had some frames lying around that I purchased for $1 at Goodwill months ago. A quick coat of Rust-Oleum Gray Primer and I popped the menu planning side into the frame. Next I added some super strong ceramic magnets to the back.
And then I attached it to my refrigerator along with a dry erase marker…
If you didn’t want to purchase the one I have here are 6 really cute free ones you can resize and print to fit an 8” x 10” frame. Don’t forget to laminate it so that it becomes a dry erase.

Do you have a system for menu planning? I would love for you to share it in the comments.
