Tips on prepping for the week

I try to be organized. Try is the word πŸ˜‰

But there areΒ a few things that I’ve been doing,Β that I noticed Β are helping, so I thought I would share here!

Our 3 school children pack their own lunches, thanks to my husband implementing that. He said they can, and it helps me, and I sure like that! πŸ™‚ So prepackaging snacks for the week is very helpful! Plus they love to grab it, and add it to their lunch.

Another thing I am doing, is planning my meals for the week. Not detailed. And sometimes plans change, and I swap out one day for another. If you know anything about farming, plans can change very quickly πŸ™‚ I think that is some of the reason I held off on trying to meal plan. But this way, I have a good idea what we’ll have, and I can make sure the ingredients are here. I usually sit down, and do this Sunday, or Monday morning.

I also love my planner! I need lists, or the running “to do” list in my brain makes me feel scattered and stressed. My planner has an area at the top for main things that need to be done during the week, and when I think of something, IΒ write it down. That has really helped me!

I still struggle with feeling like my brain is in 10 different places at once, but perhaps that is because I have a busy toddler πŸ™‚

So I would love to hear from you all! What tips do you have for being organized? Share in the comments!

And to close this post, just a few pictures of Spring, here on the farm!
