|The girls enjoying a treat|
When I put away their laundry, I put it away in pre-organized outfits.
When I go to the grocery store, I plan for big healthy meals, quick meals, healthy snacks and lunch items.
When I have time to clean, I do a deep cleaning of all items so that they are reasonably clean until the next time I get to them. For example, when I clean the bathroom, I clean the floors, corners, sinks, walls, wash the shower curtain and mirrors.
I always put my keys and work stuff in the same spot every night.
The children's sports stuff is always in the same place.
I have a bag of extra clothing, sunscreen and hats packed at all times and in the van.
I keep a case of water in my van at all times.
I prepare our lunches the night before work/school.
I have a vegtable garden which saves me time grocery shopping.
Tonight starts a 4 day vacation for me and besides the day trips I'm planning with the children, I'm looking forward to cooking some great meals and getting my house in order for the next 5 days until I can get another deep cleaning/reorganizing done. My little pockets of time are so crutial to me and to my family and they help make the most of the time I have with them, which is so important.
