Make Your Own

Wipe Off Weekly Menu Board!

I plan our weekly menus every weekend. I used to put the menu on a calendar on the refrigerator. That worked, but when I saw this idea for a dry-erase schedule, I loved it! I mean, how cute is this!?!?

The girl at that website kind of had a step-up on me. I mean, she had bought this really pretty picture frame for $7.00, she had scrapbook paper on hand, and she had these really cute scrapbooking letters that she made with her Silhouette. Which, by the way, I will never be able to afford.

So I got creative and cheap!

Picture frame - $2.00 from Dollar General.
Backing paper - A sheet of copy paper from my printer.
Scrapbooking letters - $0.20 from the post-Halloween sale.


You can't really tell - this is an awful picture - but I LOVE our new menu board!! I think it is so quirky and cute! I hot-glued little magnets on the back of the frame so it will stick to our refrigerator. I really need a good picture of this but it's so hard to take a good picture of glass frames...

Anyway, I love this idea! I would also love to know if you meal plan, do you put it up anywhere in your house for everyone to see?

Love your creativity. My meal plan is don't miss any. Try the manner/museum non-flash setting on your camera to get rid of that glare.
