Free Printable Flexible Meal Planning Guide
Do you hate that 5:00 question as much as I do? You know the one…”what’s for dinner?” That of course is followed by the obligatory “dinner dance” of opening the pantry, fridge, and freezer, and staring blankly. It’s almost like I expect our meal ingredients to light up with a neon sign and sing a little song – “use meeee to make the perfect dinner tonight!” Alas, that has yet to happen.

How to Create a Command Center That Works for Your Family

Don’t get me wrong, I “ooh” and “aah” over flawless labels on beautiful containers…or command centers with a place for everything…or spotless pantries with cans stacked perfectly…or weekly cleaning schedules with chalkboard checklists. I admire them, but that’s just not realistic to me. And when I try to attain something like that, I feel really great for the day or two that it actually works…then feel like crap when I get behind on keeping it up and discouragement sets in. […]
