Running a household and keeping a family organized is serious business. And the way you and your spouse approach it can sink you or save you. Today, I'm giving you a glimpse into how we jointly manage our household and what's worked for us.
The Back Story:
Shortly after we began a gluten-free lifestyle, we subscribed to a weekly produce box from a compilation of local farms. We chose what produce we wanted, and the box was delivered to our doorstep every week. It was incredibly convenient.
Except for choosing the produce each week. And then deciding what to do with it.
Brian and I share meal planning and cooking duties fairly equally. I didn't want to choose each week's produce and plan meals by myself. But trying to make the 2:00 p.m. Tuesday order deadline for our Saturday delivery was becoming a problem.
One of the many, many questions we get when it comes to our new dietary regime is, "How on earth do you plan meals?!"
Really, y'all, it's not as hard as you think - and I'm going to share our secrets with you. Keep reading to learn my secrets to organize your meal prep and planning.
We are slooooowly, finally, getting settled into the house. The painting is done (thank the good Lord and all His saints above), and we are actually hanging things on walls now. While some spaces (such as the fourth bedroom) are still disaster areas, others are actually, surprisingly ready to share with you...like the office. Although we still need to hang our diplomas, it's basically done. Whew. One room down.
As soon as I realized our new house had a room that could be used for an office, I got really excited, and not just because I wanted another room to decorate.
Functionally, the Stevenson family needs an office.
