We are still fresh into the new year, but some people (ahem, me) are already starting to ditch their New Year’s resolutions. Let’s not let that happen. One of my goals is to keep up with meal plans so my family and I can eat healthy and we stick to our grocery budget. I do have a 3 month old baby so that’s a valid excuse for slacking a bit on this goal, but I will not give up yet. I created some easy to use Weekly Meal Planner free printables to help keep this resolution going. The printable has a space to write out your meal idea for each day and there’s even a space for the shopping list for that week.
To keep me on top of this resolution, I used Command Strips to attach three cute clip boards to the wall and I put my meal plans on these boards. I can plan out our meals and shopping list for the next three weeks. Guaranteed this will bring our dinner stress levels down. We don’t usually plan out our breakfast and lunches (we tend to eat the same thing for all of those meals), but there’s plenty of room in each daily meal plan space to write out your breakfast, lunch and dinner ideas.
If you prefer reusable planners you can laminate or frame this printable and use dry erase markers for your meal plan sheet. Just take a photo of your shopping list before you head to the store, and you’re good! The printable menu comes in three colors: black and white, orange and blue, and colorful.

Need more inspiration to keep those resolutions? Below I’ve shared a couple of neat ideas to organize your life.
This command center will help you keep track of all the activities your family has coming up. Found on Beneath My Heart.
Keep your mail, coupons, and homework organized and easy to find with a folder rack. Found on Mom on Timeout.
You know what drives me nuts? Toys laying all over the house. Instead of running the toys back to my daughter’s room each time I pick up the living room, I can just toss them in a bag with her name on it. She can put those toys back in her room every couple of days instead of me. That’s a win. This family command chores center was found on The Yellow Cape Cod.
