Organisation: meal planning

A while ago (or so I thought, I can’t find it now!) I wrote a blog post where I was discussing what I wanted to get out of a meal planner. As like many things, it ground to a halt and I forgot all about it until I moved house, earlier this year.

My mum came up to help me move, and bought me some tiny pegs (from Paperchase), and, well, I couldn’t just leave them in their bag now, could I?

So out they came, and I wrote the days of the week on them, and stuck them to magnets so they’d stick on the fridge (this was also so I’d remember to take dinner out the freezer when I got breakfast…)


After I’ve cooked the dinner, the slip of paper gets thrown away, and I move the peg over to the other side. Then, on Monday (usually) I figure out next week’s meals, and sort out what I need to buy etc. The whiteboard in the middle is used to keep a track of what meals I have in the fridge/freezer (it’s a bit out of date now though :/)

IMGP0389(Yes, this photo was taken a few days ago!) I’m still thinking about the scraps of paper with the meals on. I’m kinda thinking of maybe writing several of each meal down and laminating them or something, and then keeping all the meals I have in the freezer in one box, and all the rest in the other, so I can even more easily see what I have, but I’m still thinking about that part!
