How I Use My Notes Pages in My Erin Condren Life Planner

Hi everyone!
A lot of people have been wondering what to do with the notes pages in their {Erin Condren Life Planner}. I figured I'd share a couple of posts about how I use mine, and hope to give you guys some inspiration.
recently turned one of my notes pages into a {Favorite Meals} page. Every week I do a meal plan at the bottom of my ECLP and sometimes I find myself lacking meal ideas. Sometimes, when I'm trying to think of meals, I often forget about a lot of options and I end up planning the same meal over and over again because I can't think of anything else to make.
decided that dedicating a page to listing our favorite "go-to" meals would help reduce the head scratching and make meal planning much more effective. It would also give us more variety in our meals because having ideas easily accessible means less repetition simply because I can't come up with anything else to make.
Last night I sat down with my recipie box and went through it, adding all the recipes to a list as I went. 
I decided to divide my list into two categories: Bake/Cook and Slowcooker. I love to use my Slowcooker and am always looking for new recipies! I find it so convenient being able to prepare my meal in the morning and come home to something delicious! Our Slowcooker is digital and once cooked will switch to "warm" making sure not to overcook the food. Anyways, I digress. 

This is the list I came up with and what my final spread looks like:

I love how it came out and can't wait to use it to make meal planning so much easier! 
How do you use your notes pages? I'm always looking for new ideas!
