Works For Me Wednesday
I have learned so much by listening to and observing what works for other moms. A great site that I read most of the time -- especially Wednesdays -- is What Works For Me Wednesdays, at Rocks In My Dryer. It gives many great ideas.
I always feel like I need to be tutored rather than tutor but thought I might chime in a time or two when something that I use is really helpful!
I use a Family Organizer by Amy Knapp. I started using this particular organizer in July 2006, and I LOVE it! The planner lasts for 18 months. Desperate to begin planning for 2008, I picked one up yesterday (you may puchase them at Wal-Mart for $10.86).
Our family has a relatively simple schedule, but when I add in doctor appointments, basketball practice, speech therapy, etc., I simply cannot remember it all! This really helps me stay on track PLUS it has a menu column beside each day. When I plan my week, I can plan my menu around the plans of the day. For example, if I know that I have an appointment, Samuel has speech therapy in the afternoon and then basketball practice in the evening, I'll plan a very simple dinner. This organizer also has a detachable column for a grocery list.
This planner definitely works for me! For more tips head over to Rocks In My Dryer. You'll defintely find something that works for you!
