Organization

Okay recently one of the members of our homeschool group has posted that she got us a great deal on getting into Lego*Land.  I spoke with my husband about it, and he was like well we need to save money.

Blu, I hate hearing those words. But, I know that is something we WE need to do. So I set out today acutally to organize things around the house. Mainly, my freezer, panty, and fridge.

My first thought is to make a menu. Not just for the week but for the entire month. (Can I do it?) Yes I do believe that I can.  So, I started making the menu for Oct. writing all these great ideas down, when I realized that I haven't clue as to what is even in my food holding compartments.

Ha ha what a dangerous task this was for me. See I love to eat and going through all this food is a GRAND idea.

Okay that seems like a lot of food.. Well it is! Especially when I keep running to the grocery store to buy more. What  crazy lady.

As I was writing all this down. I was trying to figure out my menu. And, then, I had a Aahh moment.

*Make my menu for only two weeks then rotate them.......Wow was that a great plan or what?  Oh I thought so too..

The reason for this is becasuse when my older two kids are home there are some thing they like to eat that well I don't neccesarily like to eat regularly. Plus, there are things that the three of us like to eat that the other two will not eat..

So here is the first weeks menu without Ty and Syd..
