~ 8 DIY Menu Planner Ideas ~

This past week, we talked about ways to save money on groceries and I also gave you a few reasons you should keep a running grocery list. So, I thought, since we’ve been talking about food, it would be fun to share some DIY menu planner ideas today!

Several years ago, when “make your own” chalkboard paint hit the scene, I made my own menu planner on the wall in my kitchen…

I even added a space to jot down groceries and other random things we need.

But, as I slowly work my way through my DIY home makeover, this wall will soon be changed. I’m really not sure yet, what I’m going to do to replace this menu planner of mine, but I’m sure I’ll come up with something.

In the meantime…here’s 8 DIY menu planner ideas from some other really awesome bloggers…

(Just click any of the images to check out more pictures and/or read the instructions for each project.)
