A few weeks ago I wrote that I was going to start using Menus4Moms, a free, weekly meal planner site that includes recipes, shopping lists, freezer tips, and bulk cooking tips. They have now added a daily reminder for a household chore. It is kind of like Flylady, but not nearly so involved (no thousands of emails!). This is just one reminder to spend 15 minutes on a chore in one one area of your house only.
I have really loved the meal planning. I especially love the shopping list. I am quite forgetful, so it helps to see a comprehensive list that includes spices, etc. just in case you happen to run low on a staple such as oregano.
The best benefit is that my family is feeling very loved. I have meal planned before, but I never planned the side dishes very well. We are now having a great variety of sides and we are definitely eating more vegetables. I have had the time now to add a special dessert here and there, too. The extra time has freed me up to make from scratch things that I used to make, such as pie crusts, but no longer made due to time.
Nothing says love like a table full of good things to eat!
