These instructions do not apply to the Monthly Menu Booklet.

2012 Menu Planner

These files are similar to the Monthly Menu Booklet, however; this menu planner is printed in the same way that most of my 1/2 files are printed - on a full sheet of paper with normal printer settings and then folded and cut in half. The "Menu Planner" set consist of three files. They are pictured and linked below.

The pdf fileMenu Planner can be printed back to back as many times as you need. Alternatively, the pdf fileMenu Planner Rule with Side Lists can be printed on the back of the Menu Planner - the lists will line up, back to back. And of course the pdf fileMenu Planner Matching Rule may be printed behind anything or paired with itself. This is just to say that all three files are mix and match.

The cookbook is basic blank cookbook pages for your 1/2 sized binder.
Print back to back.

Shopping Lists and Menus

The shopping lists and menus are meant to be printed back to back. The lists are designed to be cut from the page to take with you when you shop.

Menus and Grocery List

If printed back to back, one side will have lines and the other side will have blocks.

pdf fileRule - Matches the Monthly Menu Booklets

Use to make extra pages for notes. File has four pages, which means that the booklet printer setting may be used.

alertBe certain to set your PDF printer setting to what it was before either after printing the files or the next time you use your printer to print a pdf file.

The Booklet Setting in the PDF Print Window

This setting will cause the pdf file to print a booklet. That means it will arrange the pages in a certain order and print the pages back to back so that when the job is finished, the booklet is automatically "paged" correctly. If you can't use the booklet setting, cut your printer paper in half and print on the typical "none" setting. For more information, see the booklet instructions at the blog: PDF Product Manuals
