Menu Planning – March Weekly Menu Plans

Menu planning was a hot topic in the survey from last year. I had many requests from readers to share my monthly menu plans. They do take some time to put together in a decent format for the blog, so when I have time I will share them.

As we wait for approval of the Planning With Kids Menu Planner App, I am using the test version for my family’s menu planning. It is probably still a couple of weeks until the app will be released.

The table below shows our family menu plan for the month of March. For how I generate our monthly plan, head to this post – How To Menu Plan For A Month In 35 Minutes!

(NB. The app plans Monday to Sunday at the moment and I plan from Saturday to Friday, so Monday in this plan is really Saturday for us and so on!)

When you create the menu plan in the app, a shopping list is then created. You can then either use the shopping list directly on your iPhone and check off the items you have, or you can email the list to yourself or someone else, as highlighted by the black arrow:

I have pasted the contents of the shopping list emails into word docs, turned them into PDFs and zipped them together, so they can be easily downloaded.

How is your menu planning going?

I am interested to see what time frame people most commonly plan for. If you have time I would love it if you could drop me a note in the comments to let me know – thanks!
