  1. Excellent- so many good ideas and goals.

    Happy New Year

  2. Sounds like your goals and mine are fairly similar! Let me share with you a calendar/planner that has really helped my family be more organized and efficient. It’s Amy Knapp’s family organizer (www.thefamilyorganizer.com/). I stumbled upon it at Wal-Mart a couple of years ago, and I’ve ordered directly from her site since then. She’s a Christian mom who was struggling to be organized. Each two-page spread in the calendar has blocks for each day’s activities/reminders, an ongoing grocery list, a to-do list, and a menu section for each day. I faithfully complete the menu section, and my husband and I both add our schedules to the calendar. We also both write down anything that we use up or are close to being out of on the grocery list. The grocery list is even perforated so you can tear it out when you go to the store. I use this as a basis for my shopping planning. It’s been a HUGE lifesaver! (No, I don’t work for Amy! I just know how much this calendar has helped my family.)

  3. Great goals! We have several of the same ones this year. Best of luck to you in achieving them! :-)

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
