Home Management

Home Management

Managing my home well is so important for my self care.  If my home is clean, I am less likely to be anxious.  I meal plan and grocery shop to save money.  Saving money brings me less anxiety.  There’s just so much to taking care of myself!

I meal plan each week using my meal planning “hub” in my kitchen/living area, and I grocery shop using a list from the notes on my phone.  It’s so easy to just check things off as I go in the store this way.  I don’t have to worry about having a pen or to make sure that I remember the paper list.  It’s just all there on my phone!

On the left is a dry erase calendar, and I use a purple dry erase marker to write in meals.  To the right are magnets for the foods that we eat often.  So I use a combo of marker and magnets.  To the left of the calendar are common breakfasts and lunches.

Daily Planning: I use my Happy Planner to plan each day, and I have a chart that shows what I need to focus on each day hanging on my marker/bulletin board.  I haven’t gotten to the exercising yet, but that’s okay.  I will get there!

The kids each have a checklist in their room along with a dry erase marker with  velcro.

I have a list of rules, consequences, and rewards hanging under my meal planning calendar.  

I work really hard to keep our house clean and organized.  It helps my mental health so much.  Our house had gotten way out of control because I was depressed and it just made me feel worse.  Since I cleaned and organized recently, my mental health has improved dramatically!  Here are a few of the organizing projects that I did:
