I decided this was a great idea to help me eat healthier and less expensively!

Items Needed:
Letters for "MENU" and days of the week

i saw that on pinterest and i'm definitely doing it. i may put magnets on the back of it to put it on our fridge to replace the scraps of paper i usually write our meals on :)

thats adorable! what a good idea.
my sister does that, but with a pad of paper, so a new piece goes on top every week, and she had kept all the menus from that apartment they lived in.
