Hi sweet friends! Can you believe it’s already Monday? Another weekend has come and gone. I spent most of the weekend in the kitchen. After the Holidays I didn’t have the chance to “deep-clean” when I put away the decorations. So I got busy wiping down shelves and organizing cabinets.
While I do enjoy having the open shelves in the kitchen, I dislike cleaning them. Maybe if I didn’t place so many dishes up there…but I try to keep dishes we regularly use within reach, and this set-up works well for us.
Anyway, as I finished up the kitchen, I sat down to plan the week’s menu. One thing I really wanted to improve on this year is menu planning. Instead of deciding what to cook each day at 5:00pm…I am planning out the week’s meals so that I know which meat to have defrosting the night before. I found this Household Menu Organizer at Lifeway Bookstore for $5 !
It has a monthly calendar for writing your daily meal and a grocery list for each week. It really has helped me to stay organized and plan ahead.
I also have been clipping more coupons. A friend told me about Coupons.com, and it seems to have coupons that I really use. This organizer has a pocket to store coupons for each month.
So I thought maybe if you are looking to do a “menu makeover” this year, you would really enjoy this organizer. Also, it has tips on making healthy meals for your family and the importance of eating fresh.
Now, my kitchen is clean and my meals are planned for the week…
Wish the rest of the house was in order :)
Do you make weekly menus? I’d love to hear how you stay organized in this area.
Maybe soon we could talk about keeping the pantry and fridge organized…
Thanks for stopping by!
I’ll post the winner of INSPIRED YOU by Miss Mustard Seed real soon :}
