My family is trying something different this week as an attempt to streamline dinner-making. Saturday morning I took inventory of staple food items that were needed and I added them to the grocery list. (We use the app called "GroceryIQ" as our list. My husband and I have the list synced so we each have it accessible at all times.) In addition, I chose 3 meals that I will make this week and added the ingredients to the grocery list.
As you can see in this photo I wrote the selected meals on a wipe board that I stuck to my fridge. One requires a recipe so I clipped it from a magazine and used a magnet to attach it to the list. I am excited to try this new approach to meal planning. It is simple and takes the pressure off when the kids ask "Mom, what's for dinner?"
Many of my clients have asked me where I house the donations, electronic recycling, and shredding that I haul away after our sessions. This photo shows the sorting station in my garage. (The lower right bins are for Salvation Army.)
Anything that fits in my Prius is fair game for complimentary haul away after a working session. I figure it is better to make one trip around Syracuse for all my clients once a week than to have all my clients make several of these trips each week. Saves you gas/saves you money/saves you time and I am always happy to help :)
