Weekly Menu Planner Forms

Working to get my grocery shopping under control to keep the budget down, we are switching over to doing menu planning, weekly at first.

I whipped up this this weekend to help me out, and to make it look like the rest of my planner.

Included are .pdf for Classic and for Letter size as well as the source OpenOffice file.

Paper size: 
Classic (5.5 x 8.5)
Usage advice: 

Print two sided. The Classic size is on letter size, 2-up.

I like it - and a question

Did you mean to have 8 pages in the letter size version ?
I see no difference in the pages. It looks like 4 copies.
Not a problem other than my own confusion.

This rocks!

I was just looking at a bunch of cheesy "mom planners" and trying to figure out how to just make my own (with adequate space to write menus...not to mention all of the other billion things I need to remember). Imagine my delight when I found this...and I could easily edit the files in OpenOffice. So very cool! Thank you so much!

I am interested in seeing

I am interested in seeing this menu/grocery planning page, however, am having difficulties opening the .zip file.

Would someone be willing to email it to me? [admin: email removed]

Thanks in advance!

No ! And we do not post open email addresses

The .zip file is fine. I just downloaded and unzipped it to check.

Please try again.

Took me awhile to learn how

Took me awhile to learn how to 'zip' and 'unzip' *smile* but the pdf results in gobbly-gook symbols! ugh.

but yeah, me, I was able to view the documents on 'open office' which I downloaded last night.

trying so hard to learn.

forms look great!

what I've done is ask my grocery store manager to send me the store layout on excel, and then I made a spreadsheet front and back of everything we buy. we highlight what we want to buy that week.

my menu plan isn't a blank form either, I have a hard time planning from scratch each week. I have a form with everything (almost) I know how to cook - and that's limited to one page) with all the main dishes separated by category. famiy knows to pick one beef, one chicken, one salad etc.

Zip file

Your will have to download winzip in order to open the zip files. Type it in google or your browser and put free download winzip. Once you open the downloaded file it will be a trial version but you can still use it for a good while before it runs out. Hope this helps

or get freeware

like ZipGenius

WinZip becomes a real pain once the trial period expires.
I found this one a while back and it works great for me

There is also StuffIt Expander - it only unzips
Windows Version
Mac Version
It will politely pester you to buy the full version, but no where as annoying as WinZip

Printing if you have a MAC?

Normally I've not had any issue opening zipped items. The MAC just handles it. I am new to MAC on the other hand and this zip downloaded but will not open. Suggestions?

What have you tried ?

It works for me to just double-click the zip file. MacOS opens it with no problem. What version are you using ?

first thing

Always, with files downloaded from the net, the first thing you should do, if a file doesn't behave as expected, is to re-download it. Sometimes a download gets broken, but the browser doesn't recognize that, and treats the file as a complete download. This is what your problem sounds like. Try downloading the file another time, and watch it, to make sure that the entire file size is downloaded. It should unzip then.
