Menu Planner

I didn't get my link in in time to be part of the January blog challenge, however I still wanted to make something and share all the other fantastic blogs.  This month's theme was Organization. January is a good time to get your house in order; in fact, it was probably one of your New Years Resolutions.  I've been working on organizing our menu planning for a while now and this project has been in the back of my mind for just as long.

What you'll need:
*Cookie Sheet (mine is from Dollar Tree)
*Vinyl Days of the week
*Pockets (I made mine)
*Cards with all your meals
Mind didn't turn out exactly how I wanted it.  A little bit of poor planning plus planning before I had the cookie sheet.  Oops! But it is functional for now.  Eventually the food cards will get a makeover and the pockets probably will too.  But never the less, here it is:
I used magnets made with aquarium rocks and scrapbook paper, but you could also glue cloths pins to the board.  I also used magnet strips on the back to hang on my fridge.
