Master Grocery Lists

A master grocery list is one of my FAVOURITE Bullet Journal layouts to include to streamline how you are meal planning. Once I implemented this layout in my own journal, I saved so much time each week from making my shopping lists!

What is a master grocery list?

Simply put, a master grocery list is a layout that includes a list of the grocery items that you might consider essential in your home.

Personally, I like to have the list broken up into the sections of the grocery store.
– Produce
– Bakery
– Deli
– Fridge
– Freezer
– Dry Goods/Pantry

Under each category, list out some of the things you find yourself buying regularly. Some ideas include:
– Fruit
– Vegetables
– Bread
– Coffee Cream
– Eggs
– Milk
– Butter
– Cheese
– Pasta

Ideas & Inspiration

A master grocery list is a really simple layout, so you can get really creative with how you want to design it, what doodles you want to add, and how much space you want to leave for yourself! Take a look at these really cool layouts!

Weekly Meal Plan

If you are somebody who loves to meal plan on a weekly basis, you will LOVE these layout ideas!

What is a weekly meal plan?

Weekly meal planning is simply the act of pre-determining the meals you will prepare for the week ahead. There are a lot of different ways that you can do this, and I encourage you to experiment until you find a strategy that works well for you!

Some weekly meal planning strategies that you could try include:
– Rotational Meal Planning
– Theme night Meal Planning
– Seasonal Meal Planning

Alternatively, you could approach weekly meal planning without a specific strategy and just choose meals that sound good for you and your family that week.

Ideas & Inspiration

The possibilities for weekly meal planning layouts in your Bullet Journal are almost endless! These examples should give you some great ideas that you can use to get started!

Weekly Meal Plan & Grocery List Combined

Another option that you might consider is adding a shopping list along with your weekly meal plan!

This is a strategy I really like to use alongside the master grocery list. On the weekly portion, you only need to include the specific ingredients you need for the specific recipes that aren’t found on your master list!

One of the hardest parts of sticking to a meal planning routine is the time it can take to actually create a meal plan for the week.
