Tip Tuesday

This month has been a busy one. First I tore the ligaments of my ankle, that was over a month ago and it still hasn't healed completely. It's funny how the house gets when mommy is not 100% well. Also the boys have been a little under the weather. With that said I am joining some of you and posting a tip this Tuesday.

The best tip I can give is plan. Yup simple as that or is it. See this month I have been trying to catch up with my housework after my little accident, that I have not planned my days as well as I used to. I have noticed that I spent alot more money on groceries and I did not take advantage of sales because of my lack of planning. I also did not plan my menu for two weeks and the result was chaos. A lot of food went to waste and my kitchen was a mess adding to the chaos and my discouragement. Now as the end of the month comes near I noticed that we have no money in our account, most of which I don't know where it went.

So ladies learn from me and take time to plan. Trust me that time spent on planning menus, outings, household cleaning, etc. will be time well spent.
