Please join me in welcoming Rachel Goerke to TCM today. She is one of our incredible behind-the-scenes ladies and we are so happy to have her share her own creation with us today. Thanks Rachel!
I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I have attempted to change my eating habits in the past couple years. I wanted to lose the fat, have more energy, and just be healthy but was having the hardest time getting there. This past January I was introduced to a fabulous gym, (thanks Angie) and there learned so much about my unhealthy eating habits from my personal trainer.
Little did I know it would be the start of something new. As I weeded out all the unhealthy foods in my life I began to look for healthy recipes that would fit my new lifestyle. I have fallen in love with The Food Network and many, many recipes from there.
With all of my new favorite recipes, I realized that I needed to be more organized with my shopping and planning. I thought this would be a perfect way to organize my grocery list (and maybe cut down on some of those not needed items.)

Care to DIY with me?
The Grocery List was super easy to create using TCM Color Story. As I was finishing up, (a light bulb pops up in my head). Why not create a little magnetic note pad out of the list? I had a blast putting this together. Here is a simple idea and some instructions on how to make your own magnetic Grocery List:
- printed up sheets of the Grocery List PDF (I printed up 10 sheets, to have 20 total lists when done)
- hard cardboard
- glue or some type of adhesive
- paper cutter and/or scissors
- hole puncher
1. Cut the printed off lists in half, giving you two from each sheet. The new list should be 4.25” x 11”
2. Cut your cardboard down to either the same size as your lists or just slightly bigger. This will provide a nice solid place to attach your list to on the front and a magnet on the back.
3. Next punch 1-2 holes in both the lists and the cardboard. Make sure that the holes line up!
4. Cut enough ribbon to tie the lists to the cardboard.
5. Adhere the magnet on the back of the cardboard.
Note: Make sure to use a big enough magnet or multiple magnets to be able to hold up the pad. My first attempt, shown here, was not strong enough and I had to cut out a new piece of magnet.
I am working on getting together another share for some recipe cards that are in the works. I seem to have gotten a little ahead of myself with the Grocery List first. So stay tuned to keep getting your kitchen organized!
