One of my favorite bloggers is Modern Mrs. Darcy. She recently wrote a post (with a link up) entitled “The Things that are Saving my Life Right Now”. She cleverly lists the daily essentials that, well, just make her daily life easier.
Menu planning is saving my life right now. When that two week mark rolls around, I consistently have two thoughts:
“Is it time to shop again already?”
“I don’t want to do this….”
Planning our meals, making a huge shopping list, and then doing the actual shopping for two weeks is a HUGE, exhausting task.
But spending 3-4 hours planning + shopping on a Sunday every two weeks reduces the daily-dinner-time-stress. It’s worth it to me because it makes my daily life so much easier.
And with 4 kids, 50+ papers to grade this week, and a mountain of laundry to tackle (starting tomorrow, I promise…), I need all the help I can get.
What is saving your life right now?
