Homemaker Monday {Weekly Menu Board}

If you’re on Pinterest, I’m sure you’ve seen a variety of menu boards out there. I have been drooling over all of these since before we moved into the house, but I made myself put it off until we were settled in. My life seems better somehow now that I have a weekly menu board.

Instead of copying a specific board exactly, I took inspiration from all of the boards, and made it work for my family.

    I too have been looking at all of the menu boards. I am trying to figure out what will work best for our family. I think that the organization of it would be amazing and would cut out a lot of, “What in the world are we going to have for dinner tonight?” (And, that question is often being asked by me at about 5:30!?)

      That was SO me! It’s really nice because the husband looks at the board in the morning before he heads to work and takes any meat out of the freezer for that day’s dinner.

    I have been wanting to make some sort of menu board too but I just haven’t done anything with it yet!!! Yours is absolutely darling! I love the colors, the little envelopes, and the baby clothespins:-) I pinned it for future reference!!!

      I understand! I think the key is to make sure you have a TON of recipes on there – more than you think you’ll need…that way it’s really easy and you don’t really have the option of giving up on it. {Not to mention it’s just so adorable that you’ll want to use it!}

    I’m going to make this for my mom for her birthday, but I want to know if you glued everything to your paper or onto the glass. Also, did you print it on normal paper or on cardstock? I LOVE THIS THOUGH!

      I removed the glass completely, so everything is just glued down to the back piece of cardstock. The cardstock is mounted on the cardboard picture frame backing. All of the paper I used was thick scrapbook paper.
