Ahhh, so nice and organized now! Here is what I used:
1. Healthy food photographs: You could find a few photographs of your favorite healthy meals and secure them on your fridge using Scotch Restickable Cut Tape. This allows you to always see healthy meals/snacks when you get to your fridge helping you make better decisions when you finally open the door. The tape holds well and can be easily removed off your photograph, and fridge.
2. Framed month: To add a touch of pretty to the meal planning space, you could cut out an old calendar and frame it up using a Small Scotch Display Frame. I love the Scotch Restickable Tape so much much that I used it to add a personalized touch to the Display Frame, too. You could also use the frames to add a couple of personal photographs.
3. Weekly planner and need list (below the frame of August):
Here is where the healthy planning comes into play (with a few nights out, etc.). The Post-it Planner & Perforated List Pad is a large Post-It product that allows you to meal plan + have a "need" list easily transferred from the perforated pad to your fridge- an organizers dream.
A new goal could be to try at least a few times a month (let's not get over zealous here) to sit down on a Sunday morning/afternoon to flip through your mags, recipe books, and recipe binder to find recipes that you want to make that week. Then you can plan out the week's recipes before hitting the grocery store (no more buying random items that don't always go with meals- maybe I'm the only one that does that?). Again, after you plan out the week- you can post this to the fridge so you know what you're making and others in your house can look at see what you're having.
4. Recipe & Coupon folders: After you've figured out what you want to make, you can take the recipes for that week and place them in your Large Post-it View and Go Pocket on the fridge (of course if it's a book you could use a Post-it Note to easily get to the recipe). I added a round label with the word "Recipe" to organize on top of something that is already organized :). Then for the coupons I used a Small Post-it View and Go Pocket to hold any loose coupons that need to go into the car ( I keep all my coupons in a plastic bag in my glove box).
here it is all folded up and ready to hit the aisles:
Hope that this post has inspired you to plan out some healthy meals and start cooking!
