With the holidays just barely behind you, the vastness of January beckons — the clean, white squares of your calendar, now devoid of holiday happenings, are waiting to be filled, with appointments, activities, entertaining and so much more. Why not start this year off right by getting your family extra-organized from the get-go?
Mom’s Agenda and Chore Charts
An organized family needs an extra organized mom at the helm, and the More Time Moms Mom’s Agenda for 2016 is a personal organizer made just for busy moms. Get a handle on all your appointments, family commitments and personal and home projects, too. The individually dated squares are large enough to list your appointments, plus the planning pages will help you set goals and keep you motivated and on track throughout the year.
And while mom gets organized, she should also start her children on the same track with Chore Charts to help establish and delegate family chores. Make chores a regular habit for your kids by choosing tasks based on age and ability. Kids will love taking on their own tasks and seeing the checkmarks and stars accumulate as they master important skills and learn responsibility, first for themselves and later for family pets and other family members.
Meal Planning and Lists
Planning and shopping for family meals can be a big job, so Moms need to enlist the help of all family members to make mealtimes more manageable. More Time Moms Fridge Lists come with fridge magnets and tear off shopping lists to help you plan your meals together and then delegate the shopping to a specific family member. Don’t forget to involve your kids in mealtime prep and clean-up as well; it teaches them teamwork and helps to develop lifelong skills. This new year, free up some time for more important things by feeding your family with delicious, healthy meals in less time. Declutter your fridge and pantry, stock your freezer, and use whatever apps and cookbooks that make your life easier!
A Clutter-Free Home
January is the perfect time (the kids are back to school and the house is quiet) to throw out old things, recycle toys and go through clothing, so check out these tips to keep your home calm, clutter-free and more organized throughout the year. And even the most organized home has last minute tasks and reminders that come up. For these occasions, the whole family will appreciate and want to use Sticky Notes. Put them in lunches to let them know you are thinking of them or have kids stick them where they want to remind them of last minute things.
Happy New Year and happy organizing!
