Better late than never.  Right?

It’s been since…April, I think…since I’ve had a monthly meal plan. And my mental condition has suffered as a result! It’s time to get back on the monthly meal planning bandwagon and bring a little sanity back into the kitchen!!!

(Even if it is 1/3 of the way through this month already!)

School starts so soon…and I’d really like to have my brain screwed on as we move into this next season of busy-ness.

I love your templates and planners but was wondering, if I wanted to make my own do I need some special software for my computer to create them as a pdf file? I have Adobe on my computer that I can view the pdf files from other computers but not sure how you make one yourself?

@Denise,

You can save a Word Doc as a PDF in Office 07 and Office 10.

I wish I had the willpower/organization to do something like this! I’ve tried making shopping lists along with eating plans before but I just can’t keep up with it. Glad you’re getting back on track with yours. :)

The stuffed tomatoes sound great! I wish I was as ambitious as you in your monthly meal planning. Having everything planned out can save you on unneeded trips to the grocery store and unnecessary stress each night over what to cook. I will keep trying to make a weekly meal plan and maybe eventually move on to a monthly one!
