I get SO excited about the holiday season! But it seems like once it gets here, you blink twice and it is over, right? It’s because there are a neverending number of parties to go to, presents to buy, things to decorate… and fun to be had! I don’t like to let meals get out of control during this time, so I take a few extra minutes to sit down and plan them out so that I am not scrambling at the last minute to get the family fed. This festive printable weekly meal planner for December will keep you on track and organized so that you can spend more time with loved ones and less time stressing about meals.
The meal planner template is available as both an A5 planner insert and also as an 8.5×11.

How do I use meal planning templates?
That is really up to you! These simple printables are designed to allow you to use them in a way that works best for you. You can put them in a binder and keep the old ones for later when you need some meal ideas. Use them to plan breakfast and lunch, or maybe just dinner. I like to plan a few weeks or even a whole month at a time so that I only have to think about it once.
