Meal planning brings peace of mind to the kitchen and helps to serve so many different purposes. It can help to save you time in the kitchen, no more wondering what you're going to make for dinner because it's already planned ahead of time. It can save you money at the grocery store because you can create your shopping list based on your plan, so you're not buying stuff that will go to waste. It can save you money by making those last minute stops at the store or ordering take out ... Read More about Meal Planning and Menu Ideas

After showing off their larger counterparts in the last post, I couldn't wait to introduce you to the half-size horizontal weekly planner printables. If you didn't catch that post that's ok, I'll give you a quick recap right now. Horizontal layouts are fairly new to me. I think I made one WAAAAY back when I first started blogging, but it was really rough. I only have a couple other ones on the site. The ones I shared in the post about how I set up my planner and ones designed to fit pers ... Read More about Introducing the Half-Size Horizontal Weekly Planner Printables!
They say that the heart of the home is the kitchen, so it's only fair that the kitchen gets its own section in the home management system. My meal planning and other kitchen related planners and checklists live in my kitchen binder. It makes sense for our family to have this separate from our home management binder. If you prefer to keep everything in one place, you can easily create a meal planning and kitchen management section in your binder or notebook. Without further ado, let's jump rig ...

Do you ever have one of those evening where you are counting the minutes until you crawl into bed; bed time finally rolls around and all of a sudden you are wide awake? No matter what you try you just can't get to sleep? That was my night tonight. Counting the minutes to bed time turned out to be a very productive time for me. I have laundry drying right now because I was trying to keep busy and for whatever reason my brain thought laundry would be fun. I cleaned the pet cages, prepped scho ...

It's no wonder when they offer the versatility of a day planner with the flexibility and planning power of a monthly calendar.

Is there a better way to end a week than with some more printables? You may recall that the other week I shared some new planner printables with you that I designed for helping plan a Canada Day or July 4th barbecue. I had a lot of fun making those, and was pleasantly surprised to learn that many of you liked them too, more than that, many of you wrote in asking if I was going to be making more generic versions that could be used all summer long, not just for the holidays. To be honest, I had ... Read More about More Summer BBQ Planner Printables
Can you believe that we're in the last week of May already? I am eagerly counting down the days until school is over and summer vacation is here! (Please tell me I'm not the only one?) One of our favourite ways to kick off summer vacation is with a BBQ. With Canada Day falling so close to the end of school year, it's a great time to combine the two celebrations and welcome summer with a bang! Though Travis doesn't ever need a reason to fire up the grill, and he certainly doesn't limit his gr ... Read More about Throw a Patriotic Bash with these Summer Holiday Planner Printables!
Can I let you into a little secret? I don't use any of my meal planning printables. Crazy right?! The thing is, I used to use them faithfully. Not only did they help make sure I had something to put on the table each night, they really helped when it came time to do the grocery shopping. Truthfully, though, we hardly ever followed my plan, and then last year we discovered a local butcher who sells local meat in bulk packs. That changed things considerably. It forced me to start planning ... Read More about Why I Stopped Planning my Meals and What I do Instead!
We live in a world where information overload is something that happens all too often, and it's so easy to find yourself caught up in new idea after new idea and soon a whole day, week, month, or even year has gone by, and you still don't have a planner that works for you. I have a had a lot of fun writing this series. In many ways I could cheerfully keep going on and on about planners and how to create the one that works for you, but I don't want to be the cause of information overload for a ...

For the last couple of weeks I've been working on redesigning the site to make it a little more user-friendly. Many of the changes made were ones I've been planning for a long time now. I've been collecting ideas, figuring things out, and working on things behind the scenes. This weekend I decided to jump right on in and get the new design up and running so all of you could enjoy it too! I have to admit, I'm smitten with the new layout. It makes me smile every time I see it. I have been dy ... Read More about Welcome to Our New Home!
There has been lots of planner talk going on around here lately. I love planners. Despite being a scatter-brained, creative, go with the flow, march to the beat of my own drum, kinda girl, (or maybe because of that?) I find planners in all their various shapes, sizes and purposes to be wonderful tools we can add to our arsenal of organizing weapons. Perhaps the best part is that often times you can DIY or build your own for a fraction of what it would cost you to buy one. DIYing your own pla ...

I only share what I use or love myself.** For me, choosing the right gifts to give my nearest and dearest is all part of the wonder of the season. There is something almost magical about perusing the stores and kiosks in the malls or wandering through the locally owned shops downtown in search of the perfect gifts. However, this year, I'm thinking of ski ... Read More about Gifts Made by You Gift Guide with Zazzle
