Today we’re taking a look at the Erin Condren Petite Meal Planner! I did another review on the petite budget planner, and have a few more I’m going to share as I’m setting up this petite planner folio that I’m going to be trying out for 2021. I meal plan every week and do sometimes like to reference past meal plans, so I think this will be helpful to add to my planner lineup.

The petite planner folio system is kind of like a traveler’s notebook set up that Erin Condren has created. There are so many different options for books you can include, and each planner folio holds four notebooks. This meal planner book is great for planning meals, keeping track of important or frequently used recipes, and creating your shopping lists and meal prep ideas each week.
The main weekly meal plan pages include spaces for breakfast, lunch, and dinner 7 days a week. Then, you have a shopping list and a meal prep strategy. I mentioned in the video that I really prefer a perforated shopping list that you can take on the go, which isn’t the case with this planner, but this system is small and portable, or sometimes I like to snap a picture of the list with my phone. I’ve also been doing online grocery ordering more recently, so this isn’t really an issue for me at this moment.
I did film a video flip through with my thoughts on this planner that you can watch below.
This planner also has dinner party planning pages, which I could see being really helpful for planning for holiday dinners, like Thanksgiving, but if you are a person who hosts dinner parties this would be super helpful for you.
Finally, there is a small section of recipe logs in the back of the book that you could use to write down new recipes you like and need help remembering, or your family’s most used recipes, just depending on how you want to use it. It’s not enough to keep track of all of your recipes, but it could be good for keeping up with newer family favorites.
Finally, you do get a sheet of cute meal planning stickers included in the back pocket. You could also store coupons in the back pocket, or anything else meal planning related you wanted to keep up with.
So there you have my look at the Erin Condren Petite Planner Meal Planner for the Planner Folio system. I’ll be sharing more about using this planner soon, so stay tuned and be sure you are subscribed to my Youtube channel! You can find the planner folio system from Erin Condren, here.
