key keeper

I put a key ring on the strap of the purse I always use. Unless my keys are in my hand or the ignition of my car, they are on that ring. I never have to search through my purse to find them now!

Evernote to the Rescue

I have a notebook in Evernote with a separate note for each restaurant I visit and what the best options are for my diet plan in each. I don't write down the "best options" that I wouldn't like either - just what I'd actually order. With my smart phone, I have that custom reference to keep me on track.

Food Storage

When I bring groceries home, I organize my pantry in categories of the food type; soups, canned veggies, ready mixes, pastas, rices, beans, Mexican...it's easy to then go to the closet and pull what I need rather than search the entire cabinet moving things around. I also do the same in my refrigerator.

shopping for food

To stop any temptations when I 'food shop' . I never shop when Im hungry, I make sure I have some veggie or nut snack on hand just to take the hunger pang away before shopping. I avoid the lanes where all the biscuits, cakes, crisps and choclates are located !

NOT NEEDED- DIAPER HOLDER

I had a grandson born in 2011, who lived with me. We would stack his diapers in a diaper holder/bag (Ones with the hanger inside) We no longer use the diaper stacking bag, so I hung it up in the laundry room, turned out to be a great place to store outgrown clothing that I took out of the dryer. Didn't realize this until we had a garage sale and I had the bag full of clothing items and all matching pieces were in the bag as well. Turned out, I didn't want to sell the diaper holder/bag. emoticon

Easy Peasy Organize

SAVE clear plastic jars... esp the big ones from BJ's and other warehouse stores. Use for storage. We have various size jars with adhesive tape, pet supplies, pens, small toys, xtra spices, batteries, play jewelry in EVERY room of the house. Dust free, water & pest resistant, easy to find and look nice when lined up together on a shelf. Eliminate furniture, gain floor space. Win Win. Ask friends who work at day care, church etc to save containers. Easy peasy when its time to move or declutter.

Buttons!

From now on, I'm going to sew the extra buttons that come with clothing onto an inconspicuous place on the clothing! That way, if a button gets lost, I'll immediately know where to look for a replacement!

Planning ahead

After working a full week, Friday nights are my time at home to plan my menu for the workweek. Saturday is grocery shopping day, Sunday morning is for church, and Sunday afternoons are for prepping foods for the work week, and cooking a main meat to eat off for a few days.

Break Each Task into Manageable Chunks

When I break a task down into manageable chunks, then I don't feel so overwhelmed. Only a few minutes a day keeps junk mail curbed, keeps the kids' toys in the box where they belong, and keeps my desk drawers from getting too out of control. I set the timer for 5 or 10 minutes and go until the time rings. It's amazing how much I can get done in a short burst of time! :)
