Meal planning has always been a struggle for us as a family but now that we are on the go after work with kids’ sports, school and activities we MUST figure something out. Meal planning is not only more cost efficient for families but usually healthier too. Now it is time to decide how to make this work for us!
Every family is different and some of these ideas might not fit your lifestyle. For us, I know we will not only need a display but also a great binder for our meal plans by month. Now, I have to decide on how to display our menu in our small kitchen! Check out some of these Creative DIY Meal Planners and Menu Displays – I want to do them all!!

How do you keep your meal plan and menu displayed in your home?

I keep it in my brain because generally I eat the same things day in and day out… No need to write it down 😉

I would love to do this. It will be easier now that the kids are going back to school and I will be able to think straight again. LOL
I used to keep a weekly menu on my fridge each week, but I got out of the habit. I hate going to the store, then forgetting what I was going to make with what I bought. Really gotta get back to posting on my fridge!
So cool! I don't normally post the menu for the week, but rather keep a list for.myself to look back on for shopping and to remember what to make.

This is something that i need. Since I'm not passionate about cooking this will help me focus and organized for meal time.
We keep a list on the fridge so everyone will know what is planned with sports and school starting it helps keep us all in check. I find it helpful to plan the week out for grocery shopping.
What great ways for meal planning! I especially love all of the dry-erase options. They're so cute they almost make me want to cook more! haha.

The kids made me a weekly menu out of a 7 picture frame thing. It's really amazing. They put different cardstock in each of the frames, with the day of the week on it. I've got dry erase pens and can write on each glass what's on the menu and at the end of the week wipe it down.
Those are great ideas and I love the one on the frames! I usually use a binder system because it's easy and portable.
