Print your own Weekly Meal Planner booklet for the Midori Traveler's Notebook

I've adaped my Filofax A5 meal planner to create a new Traveler's Notebook booklet.

The booklet allows you to plan and budget your meals on a weekly basis over 15 weeks. Each week begins with establishing a starting point for the week, looking at your budget and what food you have to be used up:

You can use this page to track your spending through the week, too.

The main part of the planner is this two-page spread:

Here you can plan out your week and decide what you'll be cooking for the week ahead. There's space for each of the main meals and special boxes on the right to capture any ingredients you'll need to buy.

On the final page, you can note any non-food shopping you need, look back at the week's menus and forward to some ideas for next week.  

You can download this insert here.

What you'll download is a PDF file, in 'pre-shrunk' format. This is ready to print straight away, without any need to use booklet format on your printer. Just print this straight to A4, with duplex set to flip on the short edge (I'd recommend you print just one or two pages first to make sure your printer deals with this correctly and make adjustments as necessary.)

Once you've printed out the pages, you can bind them into a booklet and cut to size using these instructions or these ones.

I'm aware that some of my readers like to roll their sleeves up and play with the source Word file, so here it is.

Any chance this will be made into Field Notes size?

@mebtfs No plans. It wouldn't be easy to get it down to that size.
