I meal plan.
It saves my butt EVERY DANG DAY cause you can be SURE that if I didn’t I would get to five pm and we would end up eating cold potatoes.
There was a struggle at the beginning though.
I didn’t want to keep writing and using a sheet of paper each week, or print out the pretty ones you can find online every five seconds. Seems like a waste of paper/ink
Plus, I change my mind *often* during the week of what we are having.
Enter, the plastic sheet.
Y’all know those plastic sleeve things you can get for like 2 cents. Here is what I did.
I Wrote out all the days of the week SUPER FANCY and shoved it into the plastic thing.
Then stuck a dry easer marker next to it.
Thank you thank you, I know, I’m a genius.
Now, I just scribble whatever we are having down for the week after I shop, and rub it out each week. Magic.
I do the same thing with my cleaning plan.
If you are anything like me, you might end up washing the towels three times a week and leaving your kitchen floor for three months. Ahem.
So, I found this pretty one online *I think its from youngwifesguide.com* and printed it out.
Wrote down all the BASIC things I USALLY need to in a week; Think bathrooms, laundry, dishes, vacuum ect, gave each day a few of them, and STUCK IT IN OTHER PLASTIC SLEEVE.
When I’ve done them for the day I cross ’em of. If I decide to play with the dog or go for coffee and slack off instead of do my house work, then i just leave it uncrossed and do it the next day.
ITS SO EASY.
And it literally takes me TEN minutes to get all the work done AND the bathroom gets cleaned more then twice a year cause I actually REMEMBER #Winning
So, in summary, GET YOU SOME PLASTIC SLEEVES GIRL!
And maybe, if ya lucky, I might make you a pretty meal plan/ cleaning sheet for them;)
