Meal Planner Template Spreadsheet: Grocery Planning, Weekly Menus and Recipe Book

Isn’t incredible how just 10-15 minutes of planning your meals once a week can be a huge stress relief and an incredible way of saving money? I always think this same thing everytime I come back to meal planning after a few week of total delirium and disorganization in my kitchen.

I was getting a bit bored of the paper version (this one and I wanted to have everything in one place, easy to go through and to amend along the way.

This is why I decided to create this meal planner for Google Sheet, a template that contains:

– 4 weeks calendar style meal planner
– Shopping List that show you the recipes you have to prepare for the week
– Main Grocery List to enter everything you can’t forget to buy to your trip to the store already divided by categories as in grocery stores aisles to make you save time
– Table to enter your Meal Ideas for the season divided in 6 categories (that you can customize) + a bonus for the –
Quick Recipes for when you really don’t have time to think
– Recipe Book style table where to link all the recipes you find here and there in the web easy to categorize in order to find them with zero effort
– Seasonal Produce Guide for fruits and vegetables to know in which season they are at their best (and therefore cheaper)
– Grocery Spending Tracker to always have a look at how much you are spending and saving with your meal planning

You can create and update your meal planner in your laptop, tablet and mobile by simply entering Google Drive with your gmail account. You also have the option to print it in both US letter and A4 size.


How does it work? You will download a PDF file containing the link to the Google Sheet template and the instructions on how to start using it. It’s extremely simple and you only need a basic knowledge of excel, but in case you have a question or any problem I’m always ready to help!

Why I use Google Spreadsheets instead of Excel? Because its FREE, you can SHARE your work with other people, it is ACCESSIBLE in multiple devices, it SAVES any changes automatically, it’s USER FRIENDLY, you can EXPORT your work in multiple formats, you don’t have to worry to LOSE DATA if your computer crashes…However if you don’t like using it you can always export the template to EXCEL 🙂

ATT!! You need to have a gmail account in order to access the template.
