Homemaking Mondays and Menu Plan Monday

Homemaking Monday:

I like Mondays. To me they are a fresh start for a week to get things done. My Monday tip is start a Control Journal or a Home-management Journal. This will be a life saver. My Home-Management Journal has the following in it: a zippered bag(mine is Harley Davidson, so cool!) with stamps, pen, pencil and paper clips. Then School schedules and information on the children's' schools. Weekly cleaning schedule with the zones outlined, master grocery list, then comes my address book section with ward lists and family lists. Then I have a list of Birthdays and Anniversaries with pocketed dividers for each months cards. In the back I have gardening information or different holiday information depending on the time of the year. There are many great web sites you can get information on then just alter them to your families needs.

I love this idea...something fun to work on. I love organizing things so this would be fun for me to organize a family folder. I like it a lot. Thanks.
