Tips From The Pros

Using Layout Templates to Stay Organized: Menu Making

Article written using Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 with Windows XP

School recently started back for my kiddos- a junior, an 8th grader, and a 3rd grader. The lazy days of summer are definitely gone, and between band, football, and other activities, my days fly by in a blur. As a result, many of my regular routines get jostled around this time of year. Generally, that's not a big deal; if I don't get the dusting or vacuuming done today, then I can get to it another day. However, there is one area of my day that I really have to keep up with or there can be dire consequences.

You see, my family has this annoying quirk of wanting to eat, and not just once a day, but several times... each day! I have found through the years that if I let the meal planning and grocery shopping slide, then we get into a bad habit of eating out all the time. This is not only terrible for our health, but also our wallet. Therefore, I do my best to try and stay on top of keeping a yummy, healthy selection of food in the house.

One of the easiest ways I have found of keeping our weekly meals organized is by making a weekly menu and shopping list. I have searched store after store trying to find just the right notepad or shopping list that will work for me, but to no avail. Finally, I decided to make my own.

I searched my layout templates for a template that I could manipulate into working with a seven-day week. I chose Syndee Nuckles's ScrapSimple Digital Layout Templates: In Review 2. Because it is a layered template, I was able to rotate and manipulate it until I had the perfect menu template that I could use for both meal planning and list making. I was even able to incorporate a neat little spot for notes. Then I saved the template in its new format so I could change up the papers and embellishments on a whim. Now I can print them, fill them out, and it's off to the grocery store.

Digital Scrapbooking Product Tutorial: Use digital templates to make a weekly menu planner.

How do you use your scrap supplies to simplify your life? Share your ideas with us on the Forum. Who knows, maybe you could give someone a great idea that will help them out today!

Games

November's Forum Game: Products Picks Game

This November, we are playing the Products Picks game where we encourage you to stroll through the aisles of the boutique and do a little window shopping.

Each Monday through Saturday in November, a member of the Welcoming Committee will post the name of one or two product designers in this Product Picks game thread. You will then head to the Scrap Girls Boutique and navigate to that particular designer's product pages. Choose any of their products (your favorite product, one you like, or one you wish you owned), then head over to the Product Picks game thread and share the product name, boutique link, and a brief explanation of why you chose that product.

At the end of the month, members who haves posted links to 41 products (one for each designer) will be entered in a drawing for one of three $10 Gift Certificates. Members who have posted links to 16-40 products will be entered in a drawing for one of two $5 Gift Certificates. And members who have posted links to 10-15 products will be entered in a drawing for one of two $3 Gift Certificates.

For complete details, visit the Monthly Forum Games folder on the Scrap Girls Forum.
