Pinterest is simultaneously so amazing and so awful. It’s amazing because you get motivated to clean and organize your home, life, EVERYTHING! However, it’s awful because you spend the entire hour both kids are napping sitting on the couch looking at Pinterest- meanwhile the dishes aren’t washing themselves nor is the laundry folding itself. The hours I’ve spent on Pinterest have forced many a load of laundry to be re-washed or tumbled dry for just a *little* longer to get those wrinkles out.
many Pinterest failures and a few successes, but I don’t think I have ever been as excited about a Pinterest project like this one: a meal planning board. I can’t tell you how many times a week 6pm rolls around, the garage door opens up to my husband coming home and I panic a little thinking about what to make for dinner. I actually like cookingbut the day gets away from me and without a meal plan I end up throwing together some baked chicken, rice and frozen veggies. I’d like to avoid that in 2013, so when I found this inspiration on Pinterest I knew this could be the answer to my “boring old chicken for dinner problem.”
I found the original meal planning board from this pin, which came from Sarah’s blog: Life Sweet Life. You can find detailed directions to make your own meal planning board here. Sarah used bright, fun colors which I LOVE. I don’t know why, but I totally chickened out at Hobby Lobby and went with the same boring neutral colors I always pick. I can always spray paint later, right?
What do you use for meal planning in your home? I love hearing new tips & tricks, thanks for sharing!
