Today is the final day of our glorious 3 weeks of Christmas vacation. I’ve loved the sleeping in, no schedule, not worrying about bedtimes and all the relaxation that comes with having a break. Tomorrow reality sets in & even today I’m in schedule mode trying to prepare for the week.
Do you have a schedule or routine that helps to keep your household running smoothly?
Over the years I have created little habits to help keep some order. Here’s a few that work great for me…
When the season changes, ie. 1st day of Winter, I give everyone a new toothbrush (and after they have been sick).
On the 1st of each month I fill my Jet Dry reservoir in my dishwasher. (mine takes about a month to deplete)
Sunday nights I try to make a tentative dinner menu. Usually there’s a Italian night, Mexican night, leftover night, breakfast for dinner and a few others.
I find that having a menu on my menu board gets me prepping for dinner in the morning, so my afternoons, once the kiddos are home from school are calmer. You can read all about this menu board HERE.
Here’s the weekly schedule I try to keep with cleaning/laundry:
Sun: Kid’s Laundry
Mon: Rest of Laundry
So do you have any household management tips/tricks?
Tomorrow morning I’ll more info about this next week Let’s Organizing Assignment!
