You can use the meal plans you find here as is or mix and match to help meet your family’s tastes. It’s often fun to mix them into your more modern meal plans for a fun twist.
You can use my retro meal planner to keep your meal plans organized, make grocery lists, and keep track of the recipes your family loves. It’s a really great tool to help make meal planning easier.
You can of course use the meal plans with other meal planners as well if you already have one. Or even just pull out a simple notebook and use that to plan, whatever works for you.

While it’s fun to use these vintage meal plans you likely want some modern meals as well. A great option for this is the service Eat At Home. They offer pre-made meal plans that come with meal plans (4 different types depending on your dietary needs), recipes, and a shopping list.
They are really easy to use and a great way to take one thing off your to-do list. While this is a paid service it’s very affordable and you can get a sample meal plan to see what you think before you buy.
