Grocery and Menu Planners

Taking a little time to plan out your meals each week BEFORE you head out to the grocery store will help you save time and money. We've been using these menu planners for over 20 years and they have helped our family save thousands of dollars on food and groceries. They can help you save too!

More Grocery Tips:

Plan your weekly meals around the items that are on SALE each week instead of just deciding what you want to have; regardless of whether the food is on sale or not. It's easy to do and you really can save a fortune throughout the year. For more tips please read our Save Money on Food and Grocery articles or visit our grocery site at GrocerySavingTips (includes free printable coupons).

Free Grocery Planners:

Print whichever grocery and menu planners you wish to use below. You might want to bookmark this page so it will be easy to find when you need to make more copies. I like to keep my favorite lists and planners in sheet protectors taped to the fridge and use these magnetic dry erase markers. It really helps our family stay organized and save money on meals each week.

Grocery List by the Aisle

Always shop with a list! I also like to recycle legal size envelopes and write my grocery shopping list on the back. Then I place inside whatever printed coupons I want to use for that trip, for that store. I have been doing this since our children were babies, that's more than two decades of recycling envelopes.
