if you print out the monthly things, i'd laminate it. Then you can use a dry erase marker and reuse it a bunch

I was planning for a month. But found myself off schedule at times.  I really got to start doing my menu planning again. I used to post it on the fridge. Then would cross of things as we at them.  That's how I planned my shopping.

Honestly that's how I do the month.. Now I am honest.. If today says Meatloaf.. and I feel like doing Thursday's subs.. I will cross off Thursday's Subs.. and do them.. But I follow it loosly..:)
