With the Back-To-School season just around the corner, it seems like a great time to get reorganized, no? Even if you don’t have children at home, there’s something about the start of school that is kind of like a reset button for everyone. A friend of mine recently told me that she notices the increase in traffic on her commute to work when kids are back in school as I guess everyone else is back to their usual routines.
I first shared this post of Meal Planning Board Tutorials almost five years ago and I thought it was time to refresh it a bit and reshare with new readers who may not have seen it before. Actually, since I first published this, it has remained one of my most popular pins on Pinterest.
There’s a variety of designs and methods here from other bloggers for you to choose from so you can create a meal planning board that works best for you as I know there is no one size fits all! Click on the photos to go to the blog and get all the instructions for each board you like. Along with some of the favorites, I’ve included a few new designs from newly discovered (by me) blogs. You can also find more meal planning tips and inspiration on my Meal Planning and Kitchen Tips Pinterest.
