This Sparked Me!

Here's an example; customize to suit. Also give yourself a few months to straighten out the kinks - just like a budget, it will NOT work in the beginning, so be gentle with yourself & flexible.

SUN - wkly planning, & wkly menu planning, surf the groc ads online Sun/Mon which saves gas & time
MON - clean out the fridge night, & Mon's dinner is Leftover Buffet. I also use fridge cleanout night to make a crockpot soup or stew or stir fry (or other dinner) for the following night.

TUE - is Grocery night so I need to clean out the fridge the previous day
WED - Produce Prep Night, washing & cutting up the whole stalk of celery into sticks, the whole head of caulif into florets, making a green salad, etc.
THU - Batch Cooking night

Fri night to Sat night - rest & renewal

    I can totally see how well this would work! You would just add everything else in that needs to get done on a weekly basis, and things should stay on track. I have been researching organizing for about a month cause my brain JUST DOES NOT GET IT! I like to call myself abstract random, but let me tell you, it leads to A LOT of STRESS. I keep my life afloat pretty well, but it is all rattling around in my brain, which is exhausting. I am going to give the a try! Thanks for the great idea!
