My husband is not allowed to write on my grocery list. The reason: I write my grocery list out in the order of the aisles I go down. This way I’m not jumping from aisle to aisle for things. I also don’t have to use a pen to mark off items. Instead I just fold my list as I go to “mark” the items I’ve gotten. Check out my post on The Easiest Way to Grocery Shop for more grocery shopping tips.
An easy way to keep your Kid’s Closet cleaned out is having a place to put clothes they’ve outgrown. I placed a bin in the top of B’s closet. Anytime I see him wear something that looks a bit small, instead of hanging it back up after I do his Laundry I simply put it in the bin. Once the bin is full I take it upstairs to the closet where I store the clothes we pass down to his cousin. My husband and I have a bin in Our Closet as well that gets taken to a local donation center when it’s full.
With fall approaching and football season here it’s time to break out the crock-pot! There is nothing easier and better than a slowly simmered meal from the crock-pot or queso on game day. Make cleaning up easy too by using slow cooker liners. Before I stumbled across these my husband and I would fight over who had to clean the leftover cheese out of the crock pot, a most unpleasant task. Now I always line my crock pot on game day before making queso and there’s no mess to clean up. Check out some of our favorite Game Day Treats & my favorite Crock Pot Recipes on Pinterest.

Save time and avoid those last minute Laundry “emergencies” by laying-out outfits for you & your kids for the whole week. I mentioned laying out clothes the night before in my post about Ways to Make School Mornings Easier . Picking out clothes for the entire week gives you more time for your Bedtime Routine on school nights. It also helps you make sure you’ve got the orange shirt ready for orange shirt day (or whatever special shirt day it is) and that your child didn’t wear the only orange shirt he owns the day before.
You may be out of the baby food stage but don’t get rid of those baby spoons just yet. They are great for getting things like capers out of tall, thin jars.
