Use one of these monthly meal planners to plan – and shop for – a month’s worth of meals all at once. Both designs include a tear-off grocery list that you can take with you to the store.
This monthly meal planner has space to plan your menu on the right side, plus space to make out your grocery list on the left. The grocery list is divided by section of the store, which is a big help when you’re shopping for a month’s worth of groceries.
This monthly meal planning calendar is easy to customize to your needs. Just write in the dates for the current month. Then, add your meals. There’s enough room to list your main course and side dishes, or to plan a breakfast, lunch and dinner for each day. If you prefer to plan when you’ll eat out in advance, you can add that to the calendar, too.
Once you’ve finalized your menu, use the grocery list on the right side of the planner to note what you need to buy. Then, cut it off, and take it with you to the store.

Meal Planning Time-Saver
Create a few different monthly meal plans; then, rotate through them, so you don’t have to plan a new menu each month. If you like to eat seasonally, create 12 meal plans – one for each month of the year. Then, simply rotate through them year after year. This set-it-and-forget-it approach to meal planning will take the stress out of trying to figure out what to make each night.
