For two year I have struggled with getting organized, now I am doing it one room at a time. Each room I write down what I need to get organized, then I write down what I need to get organize. I now have an action plan and it is working. Before I was buying things like small boxes or totes. It didn't work. Because I did not put down what I want and need to get organized.
Planning weekly menus saves money, cuts down on produce waste, and creates variety
Select 5-7 meals that can share something like raw carrots, celery, bell peppers and divide them throughout the week, and it will cut down on the bill. For more details e-mail me on how I do it. It won't allow me explain my system here.
