Complimentary Menu Planner and Grocery List Worksheet

Since I’ve been doing (or trying to do!) menu planning every week, I created a *very* simple menu planner worksheet and grocery list for myself.

I printed out a bunch of the worksheets and keep them in my home management binder. My home management binder is almost always open or close by, so it’s easy to add ingredients to my grocery list and put together my menu plan.

My particular menu planner worksheet doesn’t account for snacks because I don’t plan in advance for them. If I wanted to plan ahead for snacks, there is usually enough room to write them in at the end of the worksheet.

As for the grocery list, it is based on the categories of my coupon box. This template, too, has room at the bottom for notes or to add anything that doesn’t fit in the categories listed.

In case you were interested in using a menu planning or grocery list template, I thought I’d share mine with you. 🙂 Feel free to download either worksheet – or both. 🙂

Here you are:

I hope you find them useful. Enjoy!

Complimentary Recipe Book from Jiffy!

In case you missed it in my post last week, you can receive a complimentary recipe book from Jiffy Mix here. I haven’t received my copy yet, but I’ve tried the recipes on the website and they are really good, so the ones in the book should be too!


Mailbox Fun (AKA: The Freebies are Coming!)

I love getting fr*ee stuff. Who doesn’t? Over the last few weeks I have been signing up for fr*ee samples and they are finally starting to arrive!

Here’s a peek of what I’ve gotten so far:


  • Toothpaste
  • Coffee
  • Feminine products
  • Tortured for Christ (a book about a priest who was martyred for Christ)
  • Toilet paper/wipes
  • Flavored mayonnaise

After taking the above picture I received more freebies (Not pictured):

  • Shampoo and conditioner
  • Laundry detergent
  • Several more feminine products

Where do I find all the free samples? Most of them I find here. I also make a point of going to regularly because they often have fr*ee samples and others I’ve found simply by doing an online search for fr*ee samples. Some I’ve actually found by accident!

Signing up for the freebies only takes a few minutes and worth it in the goodies received. It sure a refreshing change from the bills!


I *highly* recommend getting a separate email address for freebie sign-ups. It will keep your main email account from becoming bloated and over-run with s*p*a*m.
