I recently “splurged” on myself with a one year subscription to real simple magazine. [ok, so it wasn’t really a splurge considering I ordered it on Amazon.com for $10 which I paid for with free giftcards from swagbucks.]
I received the issue for january a while back and it contained the above page in it. When I saw it, I thought, this is my kind-of menu planner. [you can download the pdf here]
no more forgetting that one ingredient.
no more prancing around the different sections of the grocery store because my list is all jumbled.
no more running out of room on my piece of scratch paper that my list is on.
and on top of that, it’s cute!
