With the new year coming, my goal is to start organizing my life! I need to organize my week so that I know what I am doing with the kids. I need to have a plan to get housework and laundry done. I need a plan so that I can enjoy my hobbies and have my supplies where I can get at them.
I have started a paper organizer that I plan to look at every day to figure out what needs to get done that day. That is what I would do if I were working, so I am going to still run my life as if I were working. I am going to get a schedule down so that I know what to expect when. A friend of mine recommended putting all the different events that are available on the calendar so that I can have options on what to do on what ever day.
I am going to meal plan for at least a week and maybe even a month at a time so that grocery shopping gets done quickly and efficiently and we will hopefully save money! I will make sure that there are things in the freezer to thaw out in case there is a crazy day in my life (and I never have any of those, right?) and I don't get to cook dinner. We will be eating out a lot less and eating way more healthy foods. I will hopefully lose weight in the process.
As much as I hate to admit it, I really need to build in time to exercise. I think that if my body were more toned, I would look better than I do right now. Hopefully I can find a way to build in exercise with the kids so that they see it as fun and not as a chore!
My goal is to have a place for everything and always put everything back in it's place so that the house and our lives stay neat and organized!
