Good Idea: Hang a Meal Calendar and Grocery List Inside the Pantry

Good Idea: Hang a Meal Calendar and Grocery List Inside the Pantry

I love this cheery little pantry, which illustrates some cute printable labels from Better Homes and Gardens. What I really love, though, even more than the labels, are the calendar and shopping list on the back of the door!

I find that I do much better eating up leftovers and sticking to my weekly meal plan if I keep a list of food and meals in front of me in the kitchen. I use a dry erase board on the fridge, but I also love the idea of putting one inside the pantry or on the back of a cupboard door.

A few similar items to those pictured above:

Weekly Meal Planner Pad, $16.99 at The Container Store
14 x 14-Inch Style Unframed Magnetic Calendar, $9.99 at Amazon
No Tomorrow Planner Pad, $23.99 at The Container Store

Here, too, is a link to the printable pantry labels seen above:

Do you have a system of staying on track and organized with your meal planning? Does it involve a board or calendar?
