Pinning it Down
I plan out menus every week before I go grocery shopping, but sometimes my list and the accompanying meal plans get lost in the shuffle of papers on my desk, or Lucy (my toddler) steals them, or I'm just too lazy to go hunting for it when it's time to start dinner. I needed a way to have the plan where I can easily glance at it to remind myself what I had planned. I pinned an idea (and saw a couple others) that involve using the glass in a picture frame as a surface for dry-erase or wet-erase markers, and I was planning to use one of these printable templates in the frame, but the printer and I weren't getting along and I didn't have time to fight with it, so I made my own. (Of course, now that I look at the links I see that the original idea used it as a menu board as well).
I've been finding it helpful. My mother-in-law says it's the cutest thing she's ever seen, but then, she says that rather frequently; she tends to gush a bit.
Go visit Amongst Lovely Things to see what clever ideas other people are trying out.
