I am still working to organize how I do our meals and grocery shopping. I just came up with this for this past week. I have a recipe binder that I keep out all the time. Using page protectors, I print recipes and then slip them in the notebook. A few old faithfuls on notecards get a spot in the side pockets. This is not a bad set up for storing recipes, but I hated pulling it out all the time for cooking, finding the recipe I needed, etc. So I got another 1/2 inch notebook (I buy these at thrift stores super cheap whenever I see them!) and decided that would be my Weekly Menu binder.
On the front I used a cute clip and attached my menu plan for the week. At the bottom I used another clip and attached my grocery list. This sits in one of my favorite kitchen accessories- the cookbook holder (I got on clearance for $8 a couple years ago!). So it is always easy to see and check throughout the day.
Inside I just stick the recipes relating to the meals for the current week. In the pocket is a list of ongoing meal ideas and a blank pad for the grocery list.
So far this week it has been really helpful. I like having it all together and sitting out as a reminder.
Now I am going to check out the other Try & Tell ideas!
