Plan of attack for 2011
How man of you out there have a New Years resolution to get organized? I DO! I
As a working mom I often become overwhelmed by all the chores that has to be accomplished daily/weekly. My current schedule is to clean the entire house on Saturday and clean floors, and kitchen as needed. This currently dose not meet our families needs, as I work 40+ hours a week and by the time Saturday comes I want to sit down and relax! I have been searching other blogs and have come up with a mix that works for me!
One thing that works for me is the way that I meal plan.I complete a monthly meal plan and shop once a month for staples, and meats. I shop weekly for dairy products and perishables. Yet other moms/ladies I know meal plan weekly and shop once a week! The key is to do what works best for your family, these are just a few ideas
So I am hoping that writing this down will help relieve some of the stress I feel and help with the organizational component of keeping house.
Monday: Market Day. The kitchen is cleaned daily after use) but today all things kitchen are completed.. Fridge cleaned out, meal planing, top of fridge, organize cabinets etc.)
Tuesday: Toilet, Tub, Towels. Toys (Organize toy boxes)
Wednesday: Wash(sheets, whites, darks, kids clothes)
Thursday: Bedrooms (dusted, vacuumed etc)
Friday: Family (Living rooms, dusted, cobwebs etc)
Saturday: Self Day Take time for you! Complete a favorite hobby etc. For me that activity is scrapbooking! LOVE IT! I also want to have a family activity scheduled this day! This will also be my errand running day!
Sunday: Saving Day! No money spent, other than at the collection at church. I also want to have a family activity scheduled this day!
Daily I will continue to clean the kitchen and complete chores as needed.
On another note: I would love to get my family to eat out only once bi- weekly. Let's see if I can do it!
