Menu board!

Morning you guys!
I finally am back to some sort of "normal" since moving! Woohoo! 
I made this little menu board {if you're a facebook fan you were probably a part of the ribbon/ no ribbon debate!} and I have the tutorial all ready for you all!
I've been wanting to make one of these boards since last summer, but never found the time to make it! I'm SO super excited to have it all complete. No more "What am I going to make for dinner?!" around 5 o' clock. I modeled my board after this website's board. My original thought was to make a magnetic board but when I looked at making those bottle cap magnets, they were expensive! So, I opted for the cork board. My total cost was around $10- I already had the ribbon and cardstock, so I didn't have to buy any just for this project. 
click HERE to print the menu labels from my board.


So, you must be wondering about the meal planning cards. I used this template to make mine. {from the same blog that I modeled mine after} This lady is a genius! I didn't take a picture, but on the back of each meal are the ingredients that I would need to purchase (so, anything that is not a staple) to add to my shopping list. *swoon*

I hope you make one and it makes your life #somucheasier!

  3. This turned out so cute! I wanted to make the magnetic one out of a baking sheet last summer and it was a total fail and a half! I will have to try making one like yours this summer. It seems like I might be able to handle it!

  8. I love this!! Maybe it would get me to cook?? Maybe?? Would you consider posting your meal/recipe cards? I need some inspiration to make something that's not a bowl of Cheerios!

  9. So cute! I do a monthly calendar of meals and have everything pre-chopped and ready to go in the freezer. That way I just look at the calendar and then pull out what I need int he mornings (or night before if it's a crockpot meal). It takes a lot of planning but is so worth it. I hope this works great for y'all!

  10. I love how you have all the ideas for dinners in the box. We so often have trouble deciding and part of it is that we can never remember what is good. Although we do have a list!

  21. I hope you still read these. I love that your board is a cork board because I want to hang mine not stick it to the fridge. I just don't know the best way to hang it. How did you do yours? Thank you for the post and the help.
