I am really a fly by the seat of my pants kind of girl at heart, but managing this household and doing it well does not allow me that luxury.
Planning ahead is truly a life saver these days. It keeps me sane, and it allows me to spend more time with my family instead of always rushing around to complete the next thing on the list.
I found these great personalized sheets on Etsy from I HEART ORGANIZING. They are perfect to plan out meals for our family.
Sorry for the bad picture…it’s from my phone.
Once the week is planned I then transfer it to this chalkboard for the family to see.
Here is what we have so far for next week…
I try to do all my chopping and prepping during Wit’s morning nap so when 5pm rolls around all I have to do is throw it in the oven.
One day I will be able to go back to taking my time in the kitchen, listening to a little jazz, enjoying a glass of red wine, while cooking up something fancy and gourmet, but right now it all about efficiency!
