For those of you who have your lives all pulled together I applaud you. I don’t know how you do it! I seem to be one hot mess after another but that’s all fixing to change.
On a positive note, I did find my sign. And it’s absolutely true. Every word.
I’ve been about the business of simplifying life lately. If its not useful in my life RIGHT NOW I just don’t want it up in my space anymore. So what’s a scatter brained gal who is trying to improve her quality of life supposed to do beyond the basic decluttering? I’m So glad you asked! Ok, so maybe you didn’t but I’m going to tell you anyway! 😄
Currently I have reduced my clothing options into a capsule( ish) wardrobe as seen here:
Which should help get me dressed much quicker without looking like a slob. Nice, right?
I have also bought a new planner that has more writing space to give me room for detailed planning. I ended up getting more of a student planner as I will be using this for my lessons as well as personal appointments. Have I mentioned how many appointments I have missed this past year? No? Well, I would tell you but I kinda lost track…..😶
Next on the simplify list is my menu board. I down sized for the actual board size but the process is the same. Make a plan and work it! You have to know what is happening for dinner when everyone is hungry and nobody (including mama) is wanting to figure out what to put on the table.
Finally, my trio of kitchen helpers helps me to make a plan for healthy meals and stick to it!
I just bought a veggie Spiralizer so I can have delicious noodles without the gluten. Yes, please! If I didn’t already have a dinner plan I would be using this bad boy right now😀
Next is my adorably wonderful time saving genius of a product….instant pot, I love you! This guy is the Farberware version which I like for the nonstick surface on the liner.
And to round out our kitchen trio I recently purchased a cookbook that promises to deliver quality breakfasts, lunches, dinners AND snacks!!! Yes, I said snacks. All designed for the school year hustle. Um, sign me up!
It is appropriately titled ‘The School Year Survival Cook Book’.
As the school year rolls on I’m sure there will be a refining process as we settle into a routine. I don’t know about you but this gal is ready to get some sanity back in the schedule.
What are your top tips to keep things running smoothly?
