Raise your hand if you often come home with full bags from the grocery store, but still have no idea what's for dinner. Or you've got your menu set, but forgot that one vital ingredient. We've all been there. Alice, author of the inspiring craft blog Futuregirl, has devised a helpful visual system to get organized about meal planning and grocery shopping.
Her husband, Andrew, does much of the meal planning and Alice lays it out using a three-column attack - one column for the menu, one column for what to buy and one column for notes (take steak out of the freezer, for example). She drew up a template with cute icons and, better yet, she's offering it as a free pdf download on her blog!
