DIY menu planning boards - weekly meal planners for wallWhen it’s time to declutter and organize in my kitchen I make a list of the things that cause me the most stress and feelings of overwhelm. At the top of that list is always the “What’s for dinner?” question – crazy what an amazing amount of stress that “innocent” question can cause in my life.

We were recently eating at our favorite local home-cooking restaurant and there was the solution right in front of me!

On the wall, clear as day, was a board divided out by each day of that week with… get this: the menu for each day that week.

If you go there and want to know “what’s for dinner?” – just look at the menu board!

Genius, I tell ya!

That led me to this quest to find some super cute DIY menu planning boards I can make and hang on the wall in my kitchen.

No more, “What’s for dinner?” asked of me… and if they DO ask, I can just point to the board!

I even got the family involved – everyone got to write down their favorite dinners and then everyone gets a chance to pick for their night.

Added benefits of a kitchen weekly menu board: everyone is getting what they want AND this makes grocery shopping SO much easier to plan (which is also SUPER helpful for our family budget).

Between my new family command center and my weekly menu board, I feel like I’ve got it goin’ ON – winner, winner (chicken dinner)!

The menu planning board is super easy to make, too.
