A Week of Meals + $100 Giveaway to Jack and Ella Paper!! They carry everything you need to help you with meal planning and so much more! A weekly grocery shopping list notepad, weekly menu notepad and more!
As a wife, mother, blogger, business owner, social media fanatic, chauffeur, house keeper, ballet bun maker, and favorite blanket finder, I feel like I am constantly doing something. I’m all about organization and planning as much as possible. Now, don’t get me wrong, there’s still plenty of spontaneity in my life. I just feel like I have a better handle on things when I am organized.
Especially when it comes to meal planning. Do any of you meal plan?
For me, it’s the only way I can stay sane and ensure I feel good about the food I am feeding to my family. There are so many different ways to go about it too. I know a lot of working parents meal plan on the weekends: plan out the menu, grocery shop and prep the meals. I am also a big believer in meal planning efficiently. What do I mean by this? Plan out meals that share some of the same ingredients that week. So, if you are buying butternut squash, for example, you can be roasting butternut squash for two meals. Or, you can buy a whole chicken and use the thighs one night and the chicken breast on another night later that same week, or make chicken soup or stock.
Today, I am delighted to be partnering with Jessica from Jack and Ella Paper! They are here in Madison and carry eco-conscious stationery, notepads, cards, invitations and more! Their products respect Jessica’s respect for simplicity and she takes great care in making all of their products as gentle on the environment as possible.
I absolutely love Jessica’s “I’ve got it together” series! Complete with the weekly menu notepad, snapshot of my week and a “to do today” list notepad, this package has everything you need! I’m all about lists and I love the daily and weekly view so I absolutely love these!
I’ve been loving these little cards and have been packing some in my daughter’s lunch bags. Such a sweet and simple way to say I love you, or I am thinking of you, or when you want to encourage someone.
And how cute is this one???
