“We are going to organize the schedules for the next week.”
Every year I say this.
Every Sunday evening starting in September we do this.
Every year we last until Thanksgiving.
Every year I remember again in the spring.
This year I am going to use technology to prompt me.
I like to set the house in order for the coming week. Sunday evening we set out our things. Check the calendar for events. Create a grocery list of foods we need for the week. Sometimes lay out clothes for certain days.
I am putting “Organize Home” on my google calendar as an event for five pm, to start each new week out on a good routine. Reminder notice at five allows me a good three hours to have time with family and nudge the household to set things in order. It’s not much. The weeks I look over the coming week before the hustle starts, we are so much more calm.
Just a simple little reminder that will bug me all year long, but should make a huge impact.
