Truth. I am not a naturally organized person. While I’m a great planner and organizer, I am horrible with the follow through. Consistency is not a friend of mine, it’s something I have to work on daily, not only for myself but our family.
More is caught then taught; children are watching and learning from us. Showing them how to be organized and get the most out of each day will be a lesson they will keep with them for the rest of their lives. I’m hoping this will be the year that we get our home organized and keep it up, as a family.
I have created these free printables in hopes that they will help you stay on task and structure your day to day planning, cleaning and organizing, as they have me.
I like to place these printables in clear plastic protector pockets that are hung on the inside of my kitchen cupboards. We can easily cross off tasks with a dry erase marker as they are completed and wipe clean at the end of the day or week.
Free Menu, Cleaning and Planning Printables:
Meals I Can Cook: I keep this printable in our kitchen cupboard and take it down each week when it’s time to menu plan. It’s handy to see all of the meals that I make on a regular basis as well as new meals that become keepers. Without my list, I often forget about meals that I can cook or that we have tried and liked. Download printable —-> Meals I Can Cook
Weekly Menu Plan: Set aside one day each week to plan the weeks menu, including your shopping list! Meal planning will benefit your family in many ways… no more “what’s for dinner” dilemmas and less eating out.
