A Chalkboard Menu Planner

Don’t you hate planning meals and grocery lists for those meals, then think? Why did I buy this? What did I plan for meals? When did I plan to make the meals? A Chalkboard clipboard with a template stenciled in paint (or cut from vinyl) lets you fill in the name of the meal with a chalk pen and then wipe it all away, ready for the next week.

I purchased this clipboard from Dollar Tree and painted it with chalkboard paint. It may have come from Dollar Tree or possibly Dollar General.

I used a cut file I purchased with a commercial license from https://dawnnicole.co so I could legally sell the menu planning clipboards I created.

However, if you want to do this for yourself personally, the template is free for that.

I cut out a stencil on my Silhouette machine for this project and stenciled it with our brand of chalk-style paint “Missouri Limestone Paint Company” in the color January. You can also use permanent vinyl.

The first time before using chalk on it, though you need to prime it with a layer of chalk. Then clean it off. This keeps older messages from showing as a ghost image after it is erased.

I may just start planning some meals and buying some groceries regularly now. 😁
