I tend to make a lot of resolutions for the New Year but this year my top two are:
1. stay on top of housework before it gets out of control and
2. start using my time wisely.
Ironically, these are areas that I tend to struggle with but yet know exactly what I need to do to make it happen. This year I am committing to getting serious about these issues and plan to use two products that I have used in the past to much success but have fallen off the bandwagon and am determined to implement into my life again.
First, I plan on using the Motivated Moms printable chore list to stay on top of my household chores. This program is easy to use…there are many options to chose from and basically it just spells out for you each day a minor chore to do. Once done with that chore you just check it off and move on.
Click here to see a sample page of chores.
Make shopping/errand list
Change hand towels in bathrooms
Clean middle shelf of refrigerator
Inventory refrigerator contents and plan meals around leftovers
Vacuum main/public rooms or 1st floor
Vacuum furniture in family/living room
Replenish stock of toilet paper in bathrooms
And so on…
These chore lists are just $8 and cover a full year of chores.
The second program is one that I have shared with you in the past called Tell Your Time: How to Manage Your Schedule So You Can Live Free
This e-book is full of suggestions on how to evalute your time, determine what your priorities are and make the most of the 24 hours in each day. I swear, whenever I follow her advice and my time schedule my days go so much smoother! Basically, her program has you evaluate how you spend your time and helps you determine a loose schedule to follow so that you stop cramming 26 hours of work into 24 hours.
I’m committing to these programs and will update you all on how it is going in 1 month.
How about you? What are your resolutions for the New Year?
