Live-It: Simplify Meal Planning w/ an Easy and Affordable Recipe Book

One of my liVe-iT liSt items is making meal planning more of a priority (but in a way that doesn’t require much work)!  If you are anything like me, when you go to your recipes it may look something like this:

An Unorganized Mess!!

So how did I fix this problem?! I bought some protective sleeves (made for 5×7 sized pictures) and put them in a binder.  Then added adhesive tabs to keep them oRganiZed!

I also added some full length page protectors for some of my larger recipes and for my meal list!  Now when someone GiVes me a recipe, no matter the shape or size, I have a place to keep it protected!

My meal list includes the name of every meal we eat and the main ingredients needed.  Every time I go shopping I grab the list so I no longer have to take my entire recipe book or make a handwritten list.  It has really come in handy!

This live-it list item was something that I completed in an afternoon.  My next task is to get all of my recipes typed on the computer and saved.  Like any goal, it is a work in progress and I will reJoiCe and eNjoY every small step I make!

Cheers!

    Love the food list idea. I would also like to make up a master list of the “must-have” household items so that when I go food shopping I can just check off what I need!
