    Simple and Affordable Christmas Decor Organization That Will Save Time Next Year

    It probably seems a bit strange to be talking about Christmas 2019 already, but I promise this isn’t a wacky, Christmas forever, type of post. Rather, I want to show you how a few simple changes in Christmas decor packing can help you actually enjoy the process of decking the halls next year. Yesterday we spent the morning taking down and packing away all of our Christmas decorations. And I will tell you, if there is one place in my life that I am not minimal, it is Christmas. I love turning our home into a festive, winter wonderland, but that also means sorting through multiple large totes of decorations.…

    Meal Planning Made Easier Part 3: Favorite Meals Index

    Hello friends! If you are here for the first time you can read Part One and Part Two I recently shared a copy of the Weekly Meal Planner and Shopping List I use each week to plan my family’s meals and make shopping as pain-free as possible. But what happens when you just can’t think of meals to put on the list? Have you ever sat down with the greatest intentions of planning the week’s meals and starting the week off on the right foot, only to completely blank on what to make for dinner? You have a shelf full of wonderful cookbooks yet nothing is coming to mind? You…

    Today I will be sharing with you part two of my Meal Planning Made Easier series. If you are new, WELCOME, and feel free to read part one and snag a free copy of my Weekly Meal Planner here.  Mom Brain Meets Grocery Store: We’ve all been there…standing in an aisle at the grocery store racking our brains trying to remember what else we need from the store. There is likely a screaming toddler wanting a snack or a preschooler knocking things off the shelf. Stress and overwhelm builds as you will every molecule of your existence to remember WHAT. THE. HECK. DID. I. NEED?!?! In a huff you get…

    Meal Planning Made Easier: Part 1

    Feeding the family is one of the most basic items on our to-do list as moms. Each day tiny people come to us needing us to make them food and sometimes that can be an overwhelming task. There can be incredible pressure to make sure it is home cooked, healthy, or organic and most basic of all…there.  We have all answered “I don’t know” to the question of “What’s for Dinner?” But preparing food for your people doesn’t have to be a stress-inducing panic each night. I have found that by taking a few minutes each week to sit down and plan out the meals for the week I can…

    Under The Bathroom Cabinet

    This week we will begin diving into organizational projects in the home. Now I like to think of myself as a pretty organized individual, but I will admit even in my house there are places that haven’t been given much attention since the day we moved in. The goal this week is to give a bit of TLC to one of the most commonly neglected spaces in the household….the bathroom cabinet. Today, with this post, I am wearing my shame proudly as I show you evidence of what our master bathroom cabinet looked like until today. The truth is, even though I knew it needed to be cleaned and organized,…
