Meal Planning Card System

My Meal Planning Story

Many who know me well are aware that for years meal planning has been an achilles heel of mine. It always felt like it was too time consuming and burdonsome to make the effort. I’ve tried numerous systems and solutions including outsourcing the activity!

I think, as a single person, cooking in general was something that was a necessary evil in order to end up with food to eat, but I will admit that my relationship with cooking has shifted somewhat now that I have a partner and there’s someone else who might actually enjoy what I make. read more

Greeting Card Organizer: A beautiful way to stay in touch

I can remember working with several clients who had MASSIVE greeting card collections. A few of them would have needed several bins to contain all these categories, but the principle hold true that at least organizing by type of card and labeling each section clearly will make it MUCH easier to find a good card to send quickly for your nephew’s birthday.

I just found this great concept for a Magnetic Meal Planning Board, and I think we might try this in our house.

It’s a little DIY, but it doesn’t seem too hard. With some magnet paper, a printer, and a magnetic whiteboard calendar on our fridge this might make meal planning each week quick and easy.

I have little personal care kits in my briefcase & purse. I’ve helped clients create kits to entertain their kids in the car, to take care of their dog for weekend car trips, and many others.

Take a look and this might inspire you to create some quick kits to make your life easier.

Simple Cord Storage Idea

Hooray for Pinterest and Nic Ole showing me this simple cord storage solution!

Don’t we all have a box of unused cords stored somewhere in our homes? And wouldn’t this be a much nicer way to find what you need easily?

If you’ve got a ton of cords (as I do), then you could even have different boxes for caetgories of cords: Computer, A/V, Peripherals, etc.
