I can’t believe we are well into the first full week of the new year. I, for one, am still in holiday mode. But I’m trying to drag myself out of it with a little focused productivity. Step one? Getting a handle on meals.
I am one of those people who has to plan my meals out for the week before I go grocery shopping (you can see the meal planning printables I use here), and I used to write the weekly dinner menu on a chalkboard in our kitchen. In our new kitchen, though (where we have no wall space), I was resorting to post it notes. Seriously.
And then when one of my kids (or me) knocked it off and lost it, I would forget what I had planned to cook, and suddenly we were eating out or making peanut butter sandwiches again. Oops.
So I pulled out my trusty chalkboard contact paper* (seriously, I use this stuff to make labels all the time… it’s great!) and cut a piece to fit the inside of a cabinet door.
It takes no wall space, no counter space; the kids can’t reach it to draw on it; I can change it easily each week with a chalk marker*… And I don’t have to remember what I planned to cook each week.
Save time. Save space. Save sanity. 😉
