Weekly Menu Plan and Grocery Haul - Video Included

I had some of my subscribers ask to see my weekly menu plans, so I made a video on my Shelly's Home Life channel to share with you my weekly menu plan and my grocery haul. 
My groceries came from Walmart. (not a sponsored post)

Here is the video. 
I hope you will subscribe to this channel for more menu plans and hauls. 

Here is my menu for the week:
  • Friday - Enchiladas & Rice (recipe is on the back of the Old El Paso Enchilada Sauce can)
  • Saturday - family outing
  • Sunday - Pork Carnita's (freezer meal) I put our leftovers in the freezer from a couple of weeks ago. This makes an easy meal for the week to pull out, thaw, and reheat. 
  • Monday - Slow Cooker Swiss Chicken (will share on my blog and YT channel next week)
  • Tuesday - leftover Swiss Chicken (we have a school function, so this makes a great leftover)
  • Wednesday - Baked Fish and Cheesy Smashed Potatoes
  • Thursday - Fajitas and Black Beans

I always keep veggies on hand and cook accordingly each night.

To see all of my grocery haul in detail, please watch the video linked above.

I hope you enjoy this share on my blog and YT channel.

I have some meal planning tips and tricks that have worked for me that I plan to share.  

Stay tuned!!

Thanks for looking. 

See you on the next post. 

Hugs, Shelly

My YouTube and Blog Planner

Hi there.  Today I want to share with you my YouTube and blog planner. 

I haven't used a planner in a while, but with two YouTube channels (you can see here and here) and a blog, I need to become more organized when coming up with and creating new content for all of you.
I went to Staples (not a sponsored post) and found this academic planner below. 

All of the regular planners in stock at Staples were for 2015 so I had to buy this academic planner, from the school section, which covers July 2014 - August 2015. 

I filmed a video showing the complete planner if you are interested in seeing the planner in detail. 

The scrapbooker in me couldn't leave this planner plain. 

I pulled a paper collection (5th & Frolic by Dear Lizzy) from my stash and some stickers for embellishments. 

The clear camera stickers and sentiments are Recollections brand from Michael's. 

The pen is by Bic. 

I added these Post-It Pockets to the front and back covers of the planner. 

These are removable so I can use these in the next planner. 

I added another fun sticker to the front sheet. 

These dividers came with the planner. 

I got out my label maker and added labels accordingly. 

This is the removable weekly divider. I covered it in gold heart vellum and added a Studio Calico sticker. 

For the front of each divider, I added a camera sticker and Cosmo Cricket Tiny Text sticker. 

This is the cover for the calendar section. 

I took out some of the telephone/address pages and covered the remaining pages in scrapbook paper. 

I called this section Ideas and plan on using it for brainstorming, notes, add pictures of completed projects, etc. 

I love the look of the patterned paper. So much more colorful and useful than telephone/address pages. 

The next section is shellyb140 which is my scrapbooking YouTube channel. 

The pages in these next sections are just called notes and are lined. 

I plan to use these to write out projects that I have planned for these channels. 

The next divider is called Home Life for my Shelly's Home Life YouTube channel. 

This last divider is called Blog. 

Sometimes I make projects that I only include on my blog so those ideas will go in this section. 

Here is the back page with another Post-It pocket and a sticker. 

I had so much fun putting this together.  I hope that it helps me in staying organized and ahead on my projects so that I provide you all with great content!

Thank you so much for reading this post. 

I hope you subscribe and come back. 

See you on the next post. 

Hugs, Shelly
