I usually take some time on Sunday afternoon to make plans for the rest of the week. I sit down at the table with my planner, some cookbooks, any reminders I’ve written myself the week before and I write everything down. I have two planners: my weekly homemaking planner and my blog planner.
This includes my plans for housekeeping, projects I’m working on, our menu plan for the week, my shopping list, to do lists, blog plans, and all of our daily appointments.
I write things down so I don’t have to remember them. It frees my mind!
When I do this, my weeks run smoother. Creating a menu plan is probably the #1 thing I do to save time and we eat better when I make a plan.
The Ministry of Homemaking FB Group
Today I’m launching a brand new Facebook group called, The Ministry of Homemaking! This group is meant to uplift you as a homemaker. Whether you work outside the home, stay home full-time, or work at home like I do, I want the women who join to feel loved and encouraged.
- This group is for women who want to make home a special place for their family; who recognize that homemaking is a ministry.
- This group is also for women who are currently struggling with staying motivated at home or maybe feel overwhelmed by different homemaking tasks.
- This group will have daily threads that you can join to help you stay accountable at home.
- Also, you can post your questions and offer suggestions to encourage others.
Homemaking is so much more than cleaning a house, cooking food, and making sure your family has clothes to wear. Homemaking is about nurturing a spirit of warmth, comfort, and love in your home.
