Half Size Meal Planner

As you may have notice lately, I’m kind of on a half-size planner kick.  One of the reasons for this is simple portability.  I love being able to take my planner with me when I’m away from home, and a full sized binder is simply too big.   Having all that info with me on the go makes planning things so much easier.   I started with the monthly and weekly pages (in this post here), and now I’m going to add to them with something many of you have asked about, a weekly meal planner and shopping list!


Half Page Meal Plan & Grocery List


It’s really simple, nothing too fancy.  A meal planner on the one side and a shopping list on the other.

I’m hoping that this will not only help me keep track of what is on the menu each day, but I’m hoping that having the list with me will help me take advantage of buying from local farmers and butchers.  Often times when I’m out and about I’ll pass a fruit or veggie stand, but I can never remember what we need, this way I’ll have my list with me at all times.  I’m also hoping it will help me take more advantage of sales at our local grocery stores.

What are some of the things you keep track of in your planner?  And do you prefer a larger one, or a smaller one?

  1. What paper size are your half-size printables? A5?

      Hi Summer, the half-size printables all print on letter-size paper. I designed them to be two to a page so you can cut the paper in half down the middle. They’ll fit most A5 planners, but they aren’t quite A5. They’re a little taller and narrower than A5 paper. They measure 5.5″ x 8.5″. I hope that helps.

  2. I’ve been using your printables since I started homeschooling so about 5 years now and I just wanted to thank you for offering these resources! They are so helpful. I love to make lists but unfortunately, I tend to often forget the lists when I need them. So thank you.

      Thank you so much for the kind words Joelyne. I’m thrilled that you’ve been finding the printables here so helpful for so long. It warms my heart to know that they are getting used and helping others.
