Free Printable Grocery List and Meal Planner

I’m back from a fabulous trip to the mountains 🙂  You may have caught some of our vacation photos on Instagram.  We spent the week in Bass Lake (near Yosemite) and stayed in an amazing log house with my parents, my bro and his family, and a family friend. It was really fun to be unconnected for the week and have some fun outdoors.

But today I am back to reality and when I headed to the grocery store to fill our (very empty) fridge this morning I realized that I never shared this easy Grocery List Printable and Meal Planner that I’ve been using for a few weeks now and loving!

 Coming back from vacation always makes for a really interesting first morning when there is not an ounce of fresh fruit to be found.  So this morning when the hubs and I started digging through the freezer for some options only to come across old baby food that I made before discovering a baby food recipe book that could do no wrong, among other no longer edible items, I decided to make a list for a big shopping trip that would get us back on track to have some easy meals on hand.

Like I mentioned earlier, I made this printable grocery list and meal planner a few weeks back, but I couldn’t share it with you before testing it out right?

Well, believe me, it works great!  First I think of the meals I want to make that week, and semi plan out which nights will be left over nights or nights that we eat out depending on our schedule that week.  Then I go through each meal and write down what we will need and put it on the list in the correct category so that when I get to the store, everything is on the list more or less by aisle, which makes getting in and out of the grocery store so much faster.

Taking the time to be organized before I go to the store has helped me spend less, waste less, and not buy things that we don’t really need.  It also makes grocery shopping, one of my least favorite chores, so much faster so I have time to tackle other stuff on my weekly to do list and still have time for some fun! I hope this printable helps you do the same!

Enjoy 🙂
