At Step Five use this printable grocery list to create your own shopping list which coincides with the weekly menu planning you have done in steps 1-4.
It is not difficult to do or follow, and at the end of this process you will have a weekly menu planner which will take the daily stress out of meal preparation.

Step Five: Make your grocery list.
If you have successfully followed steps 1- 4, you would have five "7 day meal planners" - one for each week of the month.
This is the last big step in creating a menu planner.
- Enter all the ingredients you need for the week's recipes into the Week One Grocery List. Add the ingredients for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Snacks and Desserts. (You may need to refer back to Step Two: Weekly Menu Planning Template in which you added your favourite and new recipes with the ingredients and method.)
- Do this for each of the Weeks: Week 2 - Week 5.
- Refer to the Grocery Shopping List and spread out necessary items you need to buy over the 5 Weeks such as toilet paper, disinfectant, copy paper, dishwashing liquid, washing powder and so on. Spread out these expensive items over the 5 weeks. Some items may need to be bought twice over the month, other items may need to bought weekly and others may need to be bought once per month. Add these items accordingly over the grocery lists. See the generic grocery shopping list to help you.
