My Meal Planner | Carrie Elle

Carrie Elle planner

If you’ve been here awhile, you probably know that I love myself a paper calendar/planner.  I like to write with a pen or pencil.  I don’t keep track of appointments on my iPhone.  That’s not for lack of trying either.

I attempted to keep my lists and dates in my phone for awhile, but I just couldn’t get my brain trained to use my phone for those purposes.

No big deal.  All that trial episode did was confirm my need for paper.  In 2015, I meal planned in my Erin Condren Life Planner.  It worked out fine, but my paper-loving heart longed for something separate for my meal planning sessions.  I wanted paper I could tear out (lists!) and toss in my purse.  And with my indecisiveness (cue lots of erasing and re-writing), I wanted larger sheets of paper.

I could’ve grabbed a notebook for $1 and called it a day.  Absolutely nothing wrong with writing in  a simple notebook.  In fact, for budgeting purposes, that’s a wise choice. However, sometimes you want something a little more substantial even for mundane tasks like planning meals for the week.  Sometimes you want to pretty up your home life.   When I saw the Carrie Elle Meal Planners on Instagram, I knew it was the one I wanted to test out.

Features of this gorgeous and handy planner:

  • 12 monthly calendar pages (blank)
  • 60 weekly meal planning pages. The pages are perforated so you can rip off the grocery list!  I LOVE this because I can tear that list off and shove it in my purse.
  • 10 holiday meal/dinner party planning pages
  • 5 blank pages at the back of the book for notes/recipes
  • Double-sided pocket folder

It was a snap to choose and order the planner online.  That says a lot because I’m still surprised there are companies who still haven’t figured out how to make the ordering process hassle-free.  I chose the Secret Garden cover design and leave it on a cookbook stand on my kitchen counter.  And I’ll be purchasing another one as soon as I fill this one up.  Yep, I love it that much.  The paper is high-quality while the binding and sizing is perfect for me.

Bonus:  The owner of Carrie Elle (Carrie) is such a lovely person.  I love supporting shops/businesses with awesome products with amazing folks at the helm.  ♥
