This post is a little of an continuance from my Meal Planner/Recipe Binder post.
I needed something to help me be a little more organized when I go grocery shopping for the meals I plan.
I wanted something sturdy, cute, and easy to handle for when I go grocery shopping.
I kept seeing these cute embellished clipboards everywhere and it finally dawned on me that that's what I needed!
It's cute on it's own sitting there, but I want to push it's function a little further.
I put a magnet on the back and now it can
hold my grocery list!
I created this list for my meal/shopping needs. The left column has a spot for two weeks worth to put your meals you plan (I like to go grocery shopping only
every other week if I can help it, unless there's an awesome sale going on).
So then where I'm at the store I wont forget what I planned on my cute matching Menu Board I keep in my kitchen.
And my Meal Planner Ingredient List.
Same copy from in my Recipe Binder.
Now, if you don't already know, I'm a counponer. I've spend lots of time clipping and organizing coupons in my coupon binder.
This is also nice when I have any loose coupons I plan on using. And for when I print out shopping lists from Pinching Your Pennies.
Then when I'm ready to go to the store I can just take it off the fridge and
I have what I need!
Pen and everything!
If you want to make one it's so easy. And there are so many cute ways to make one too.
I'll show you how I made mine.
Supplies: Clipboard, Mod Podge, paint, scrapbook paper, magnet, ribbon.
1) Clean surface of clipboard and paint the edges. I just used black acrylic.
2) Next Mod Podge the clipboard where the scrapbook paper will cover.
3) Select paper, trim to the size you want it then place on clipboard and Mod Podge over the paper.
Be sure to get the edges real good so the paper wont come loose. It's okay to do this all over the paper because the glue will dry clear.
4) Add a magnet on the back if you like.
5) Add any ribbon for a pen, or any other embellishments.
Then it's finished!
