Happy Monday! Today I want to share my method for meal planning by using my bullet journal. If you’re interested in seeing more of my journal, check out the Bullet Journal category of my blog!
I started meal planning around 2 years ago when I got frustrated that I was ending up having to throw out food because I bought more than I could eat before it expired (and I never remember to freeze things until it’s too late). At first it was very casual – making my grocery list based on meals and sticking to the list at the store. Over time, I started to notice what meals I liked the best, cooked most often, and were easiest (fastest) to make, and from that list of go-to meals, my meal planning system was born!
I only meal plan, I do not meal prep. That is something that’s never worked for me, mostly because I hate 90% of leftovers! We’ll see if that changes as I get older and have a larger family to cook for. For now, purchasing things with portions in mind is working perfectly.
The planning pages in my bullet journal consist of 2 full spreads:
