Here is a tip to save you time that can be done immediately. It's all about lists!
Busy lives can be made easier by keeping 1 or 2 central household lists for things like groceries and household supplies.
Step 1: Place a notepad on your refrigerator for everyone in the household to see, or keep a small notepad with your car keys.
Step 2: When someone notices an item needs to be purchased, such as bread or paper towels, he or she can easily add it to the list.
One main list can be used or several smaller ones for separate shopping destinations. When it is time to shop you can grab the list and go! This simple system encourages everyone to help in the process of running the household, and saves the shopper time and energy.
Do you make lists? Where do you like to keep them? If not, where will you start to keep a list today? I would love to hear! Here is a photo of the notepad we have on our refrigerator for inspiration.
