One of the things I have been missing in my life is a proper meal planning template to use as I plan our meals each week. I wanted something that was easy to use, easy to access from on the go, and easy to reuse my favorite recipes.

OneNote was a great option for me to create my meal planning template!

The meal plan has 2 sections, a weekly calendar section and a recipe section. OneNote is an amazing tool because you can add links to your recipe section or add external links to open a recipe from the web. Within the calendar section is a grocery list page. You can open OneNote on your mobile phone and actually check off the items as you shop.

OneNote is a fantastic tool for anything you want to keep track of. You can even insert excel spreadsheets into a OneNote Notebook, “print” just about anything into a OneNote page and create an entire virtual noteboook that is organized and always at your fingertips.

    This seems very very helpful, but I just can’t access it on my Mac. I was wondering if you knew how to..

    Has anyone had a problem with getting the file to unpack? When I open it in one note, it has a pop up that says “unpacking…” and it gets pretty far but then just seems to stall after a while & never opens.
    Just checking to see if anyone else may have had this issue..

    Wow! Thank you! You’re awesome to have included such great instructions. I just downloaded. I’m not new to Onenote, but I’m not too saavy with it either. This looks like it will be easy for me.

    I downloaded the file just fine, but when I tried to open it, the error message said it’s from an older version of OneNote and cannot be opened. What version is it from? I use 2007.

    I need to give this a try, I use OneNote for everything else including recipes. I just can’t seem to make menu planning stick, maybe this will help since OneNote is already integrated in my daily routines!

    Wow, that is so handy!!! I love preparing meals a head of time. If I don’t we always order take out and I really hate that!
