Dry Erase Menu Board

I picked up this dry erase board a couple years ago at a yard sale for $0.50. I used to just write the day of the week and our dinner for the week on it, but since I've been doing freezer meals and shopping for a month's worth of food at a time I decided to step it up a notch. 

First, I measure the board and figured out how to fit 7 squares across and 5 squares vertically so it would look like a calendar. 

Luckily, I had this ruler that was just about perfect for making my lines and spaces fit perfectly. I just put it on my board and drew a straight line with a permanent marker where I needed them. I made sure to not touch or smudge it because that would be a disaster in my book. 

I did all my lines horizontally then did the vertical lines after I made sure it was nice and dry.

Tada! After it was all dry I used my dry erase markers to fill in the days and dinners we would be having. Super easy to erase and rewrite the dates each month but still have the lines. 

I would be lying if I said I don't stare at it every time I go into the kitchen. I'm so proud!
