Free Printable Meal Planner

This Printable Meal Planner Post contains affiliate links. I make a small portion when these links are used, at no additional cost to you.

It's been a bit since I've published a free printable meal planner...so I created a vibrant and happy new one for you in six color options. This meal planner's layout is always a winning design that readers seem to really enjoy. It's simple but effective for planning out your weekly meals. Grab your free printable meal planner download below. 

Printable Meal Planner
My latest reader survey indicated that y'all wanted more organization printables (I love those, too!). A printable meal planner was at the top of the request list. Since gingham is so fun and simple to incorporate into all kinds of decor, it was the winner for this design. This weekly menu is available in six fun color options, too, including a nice black and white one. You can also find the matching grocery list printable here. Download your favorite below.

I have religiously used a meal planner for over ten years. I cook a lot, but I often forget what on earth I bought all of the ingredients that are sitting in the fridge for. I only grocery shop once a week (or even once every ten days, except for produce), so I tend to buy a lot of items in one big trip to the store. And when my grocery trip involves shopping for 6-8ish recipes, it can get confusing by the time things make it into the fridge or pantry. That's where a meal planner really saves my bacon (literally, y'all).

Meal Planner Printable
If you've been here before, you may be aware that I've created other meal planners in the past. Today's layout, in particular, is always a heavily downloaded one when I publish one of these types of meal planners. I really think it's the simplicity of the design. I've listed a blank to indicate which week your meal planner will be used. And then I just have the days of the week with ample space to fill in your meal ideas (and even room to really expand on those, should you need to include notes).

How to Use a Printable Meal Planner:

  • Download your favorite meal planner color here or below.
  • Print your planner onto regular paper. If you're using the black and white gingham option, you can even print in black and white or grayscale to save ink. 
  • If you'd like to use the same print week after week, you may want to laminate it. I laminate prints like this at home with self-laminating sheets (no special machines or anything like that are required). Then just use your meal planner with dry erase markers.
  • If you don't want to laminate, this printable meal planner is purposely sized at 8x10" for framing. Just print onto letter sized paper, trim, and frame.

UPDATE: After I originally posted these free meal planner printables, a few of you emailed and asked me to create a combined grocery list and menu planner printable. I went ahead and did that, as well, in all of the same six colors of gingham cuteness.

Since this set was a bit more involved (design-wise), I've made it into an add-on item that you can grab in my shop for $1.99 here or through the direct purchase button below. You can download one or all of the color options...they're all included and all sized at 8x10" sizes.
