Easy Craft: Weekly Menu Planner

Weekly Menu Planner and Organizer


Here is a fast, easy and useful craft project you can whip up in no time! I didn't come up with the idea, we made these with our MOPS group, here is the one I made. We just took your average boring folder, you probably have one lying around, and worked some magic with cute paper and a glue stick! We added 2 protective plastic sleeves so you can reuse the calender, menu planner and grocery list (by the aisle) by writing on the outside of the plastic sleeve with a dry erase marker if you choose.

We made sure we used folders that had the pockets on the inside flaps so in the front pocket, you can store your coupons and on the back pocket you can store your take-out menus.

Here is where you can print out the calender, planner and grocery list for your super cute planner:
