I go grocery shopping about once a week for all of the things that I will need for my meals. Incorporating a meal plan into my bullet journal helps me to plan ahead and get excited about cooking.
Below are some ideas of how children can get involved in planning meals! Bullet journalling may be a time consuming task if you have to design and organize the pages from scratch. So we've included some templates that are all ready to go; just fill them in and build your own bullet journal!
- Use a protractor and a ruler (or just freehand) to organize a layout that will help you plan your meals effectively.
- Brainstorm the different kinds of meals you might want to make and write out an organized list to look at when planning.
- Use sticky notes and color coordinate while planning out the weekly meal.
- Add any food that you don't already have at home to the weekly shopping list.
TIP: For younger kids who might not cook a dinner, they can use the meal planning idea to help plan their school lunches and snacks or even breakfasts for the week.
TIP: If you use sticky notes to plan the weekly meals and write out the shopping list then you only have to organize the layout page once and you can reuse the same page each week.
- Close the template window after printing to return to this screen.
- Set page margins to zero if you have trouble fitting the template on one page (FILE, PAGE SETUP or FILE, PRINTER SETUP in most browsers).
