Dry Erase Shopping List & Weekly Menu

Okay, so I have a new addiction...Pinterest. Yes, it's a bigger time waster than Facebook...but at least Pinterest helps me with new creative ideas. I saw this on Pinterest and decided to try it myself. I love it! I already make a weekly menu before I head to the grocery store each week. It just makes life so much easier to know what dinner plans are ahead of time, plus it helps limit over spending and forgetting things. Also, I have an ongoing shopping list on my fridge so now I have a prettier one:) Whenever I run out of something, I just write it down right away..because on shopping day there is no way I am going to remember something like being out of chili powder.  So here's my step by step tutorial.

I bought 2 frames from Walmart. Super cheap!

Since they're gonna hang on the wall I took the stand off. The frames lie flat this way.

Next I traced around the glass from the frame onto the new scrapbook page I got from Michaels

Next I typed up on the computer the words I needed in a couple different colors for choices. I did a test page to make sure it printed correctly, then I inserted my scrapbook paper.

Using fancy scrapbooking scissors, cut out the words.

Next glue them onto a contrasting color of scrapbook paper.

Here I used just regular scissors for a straighter edge.

Glue the words onto the background scrapbook paper and insert into the frames.
Hang onto the wall of your kitchen, and voila! Useful AND decorative! Use a black dry erase marker. Just wipes off with a napkin! Genius! Wish I came up with it on my own... :)
