I'm looking for some kind of weekly meal planning calendar. I'd love to know what other people use!

I got one of those 'halmark store' cheapy calendars in my Christmas stocking this year. The kind my mom always keeps in her purse. I keep it in my silverware drawer and plan my meals there.

I like it because I can easily see what I've made over the past weeks.

I like to use the ones at Cindy's porch. They also have kitchen inventory sheets and other neat things.

I just made a table in Microsoft word with enought boxes to label each day and then each week of the month. Then I just hand wrote the days, dates, and meals.

It works for me and then I can make the squares as big as I need them.

I usually just use the back of some other piece of paper. I have been doing it for so long now that I can easily divide the page into seven columns, then draw lines to make a calendar for 2-3 weeks (a pay period around here. I just jot down meal ideas according to the calendar and make a shopping list from there. I once tried using an extra calendar we had, but it was a nuisance. I like using 'scrap' paper so it gets used thoroughly before it gets recycled and because it is easier to stick to the fridge than a whole calendar!
