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!

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.
