Meal Planner Review

Hello friends!!

I hope you all had an amazing and productive weekend!

Since moving to Hawaii, and being a real "housewife" for the first time, I am learning a lot about organization, productivity, and functionality. I realized I was really struggling when it came to grocery shopping, meal planning, and budgeting for food. I use my planner for just about everything time wise, but there is no where in your planner that helps with this.

I had done some research and saw that a lot of meal planners were pretty expensive. Now I'm not one to shy away from spending money on things that work, but this was a new product for me. I had never used a meal planner or a grocery list other than on a scrap piece of paper I found on the way to the grocery store.

I finally decided to check on Etsy. Big surprise that I'd find something I really liked. I came across mod86designery. By the looks of her shop and reviews, she has been doing this awhile. I finally decided to make a purchase. She had so many covers and designs to choose from, as well has 2 different size meal planners. She offers both medium and large. Along with meal planners, she also makes yearly planners, notebooks, and other bounded books!

I decided to get the medium because it would be perfect to fit into my purse when were going to the store. That's just what I think will work best for me.

Like stated before, she offers a number of different covers. I went with this bright purple floral cover. It's even more beautiful in person.


The inside looks like this:
It gives you room to write your contact information so that if something happens to it or you happen to leave it in your cart, they can return it to you!


The actually meal planning pages are perfect. On one side you can put together the menu you want to have, and then right next to it, you have a place to make your grocery list. I love the beautiful colors she uses, and that everything is organized into their own places. Although I don't plan out breakfasts and lunches (I'm usually home), I am going to try and figure out how to use one page for 3 weeks. I'll keep you updated!


She also includes a double-sided pocket folder in the back. Its perfect for recipes, coupons, or even receipts from your grocery trip.


The back is just a solid purple with all of her information on it.


Now that you've seen this amazing product, can you believe it only cost $15.00!!??! That is such an amazing deal!

It took about a week to arrive, but that's normal being that I live in Hawaii.

Overall this is a fantastic product! And totally worth every penny. This will last over a year, and will help you stay on track with your spending at the grocery store!

If you want one for yourself, head on over to:


Thank you so much for stopping over & I hope this helps you out as much as it did me!

Until next time,
Jennifer
