My Mission:

Go to the dollar store and come home with an idea and the supplies for a Menu Planning Board.Make it.Share the How-to.

Mission accomplished!

If there were mountains where I live I would be singing the joys of Menu Planning from the top of them. (Seriously. Think: twirling Julie Andrews at the start of the Sound of Music. That would be me.)

Last weekend, I got up the gumption to get my craft on and make my own. My (self-imposed) constraints were: one trip to the dollar store to get all the supplies.

Using an Exacto knife, I cut around the glass from the frame to make the size just right.

Next, I printed the days of the week on photo paper. You can get a free printable of what I used from the original post!

This step took me awhile. I had to choose the font and colours and make it all fit the frame proper-like. I chose a font that made me think "Diner from the 50's" and colours that made me think "Happy Days".

I made 2X2 squares and wrote our Master List meals on them. Now we pin them up on the day that works for us. It's working great so far, and makes me smile when I see it! :)

Psst - it fits inside a cupboard too if you don't have the wall space for it!
