Tried and true simple weeknight meals

Planner punches

Don’t forget to like AmberDowns.net on Facebook to receive updates on new posts and free printables.

 

Hey friends, I wanted to take a quick second to talk about planner punches and adding items to your planner.  Do you have a punch that you use to add pages to your planner?  I have recently purchased both the MAMBI Happy Planner punch for my Happy Planner as well as this Rapeco punch that I use for both my personal size planner AND my new a5 planner.  At first I was hesitant about both these purchases, but after I bit the bullet and purchased them I realized that they are totally an asset and work every penny.  With these punches I am able to add all sorts of personal documents to my planner.  For work, I have added our staff schedule, contact information and emergency procedures so that I always have all of that with me.  For my personal planner I have added note pages, free printables from Wendaful.

I purchased the Racepco punch from Amazon and the Happy Planner punch from Michaels.

Here are a few of my free printables that use a punch-

So, do you have a punch?  What do you do with it?  Have you used any of my printables?  I want to see!  Tag me in Instagram photos (@_amberdowns) or comment here!

Free happy planner menu printable and recipe cards. Print and punch with the MAMBI punch. Menu and meal planning for the Happy Planner

Hey guys, I am here today with another requested item, a weekly menu and recipe cards.  I made the menu as something that could be added to the middle of a week in a planner so you can see the week and the menu.  I also made some cute recipe cards that you can punch and then add to a week.  You could also make a little book with the mini rings.  I left the sheet fairly plain so you can decorate it as you see fit.  I am going to make a full sheet menu in the future, I just haven’t gotten there yet.

Click here for the free printable PDF file!

These files are in PDF format. Print at full size on an 8.5×11 sheet of paper. I suggest using something a little heavier than copy paper as it is thin and will show through. I like this cardstock. Cut out along the gray lines to get the correct page size and then punch and add to your planner!

After I made these cards I went ahead and made a mini recipe book using the cards and a set of mini discs.  The discs were purchased at my local Michael’s store and are great for little projects like this.  I made a cover for the little book using leftover scrapbook paper.  I am going to decorate the cover, I just haven’t decided what I want to do with it yet.

These files are in PDF format.  Print at full size on an 8.5×11 sheet of paper.  I suggest using something a little heavier than copy paper as it is thin and will show through. I like this cardstock. Cut out along the gray lines to get the correct page size and then punch and add to your planner.
