I wanted a Meal Planner. So...I made one!

In early 2014, I started looking online for a meal planner I could keep in my kitchen. I had something very specific in mind, but it seemed like a simple enough request - a book that had room to plan my menu for the week and a grocery list I could rip off and take to the store with me.

But, try as I might, I could find exactly what I was looking for.

I decided to make my own and sell them, because *surely* other people were looking for a product like this, too!

It was a huge leap for me to purchase a new printer, a laminator, and a binding machine. I used all of the cash I'd received for my birthday and Christmas that year to buy equipment, and then fought with the new technology in my hands until I FINALLY created my first prototype.

Shortly after, I opened this Etsy shop...and more than seven years later, it has really grown!

I'm located in the Dallas, TX area, and run a lifestyle blog where I also blog about meal planning, getting out of debt, and planners at

Thank you for stopping by - I am grateful for you and so glad you are here!
