Carrie Elle Meal Planner Review and Giveaway




Disclaimer:  I received one of these planners to facilitate this review.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

After a search to find a meal planner with all the features she wanted turned up empty, Carrie Elle  decided to just make her own.  A few months later, she started her own Etsy shop to sell her new creations.  I was given one of these Meal Planners to use and review.

I have been using my Carrie Elle meal planner for a month now, and would probably be lost without it now.  You can see some of the benefits of meal planning on my recent blog post, 5 Ways Meal Planning Saves You Money.  What is so nice about her planner, is that the shopping list is built in to the weekly planning pages!  You can plan out your meals and your shopping list right on the same page, and then tear off the perforated shopping list before you make your store run.  

The planner also includes monthly calendars, if you want to plan your meals a month at a time, and some blank pages at the end for your favorite recipes, notes, or whatever you need.  The planner is very nicely made, with good thick pages, and a nice splash proof cover, and a nice spiral binding.  The pages are not marked with specific dates, so, if you fall off of your planning for a few weeks. . . no worries!  Just pick back up on the next page.

Carrie has been kind enough to agree to give one of you, my readers, the chance to win your own Carrie Elle Meal planner!  Simply Enter using the Rafflecopter below! Good Luck!!

  1. My husband and I were just talking about how we want to start eating healthier! I think that if we had our meals written down and planned out that it would make it a lot easier!
