With the Back-To-School season in full swing, it seems like a great time to get reorganized, no? Even if you don’t have children at home, there’s something about the start of school that is kind of like a reset button for everyone. A friend of mine recently told me that she notices the increase in traffic on her commute to work when kids are back in school. Guess everyone is back from vacation and back to their new normals.
I know I’ve been pretty minimal about posting regularly this summer. We’ve just been enjoying ourselves way too much and I’ve enjoyed staying busy with the kids! But, I’ve also been busy purging and organizing in my home. My closets are starting to look a whole lot better–a family sure can accumulate a lot of things when you live in the same place for over 15 years!
So, in the spirit of organizing and meal planning, starting this week I’ll be sharing with you a series of how to get organized in the kitchen. Whether it’s the cabinets, pantry, refrigerator or freezer, it’s a good idea to take a look at those areas at least once a year to make sure you’re getting the most functionality and saving the most in the kitchen.
And, starting in September, I’ll be doing a Meal Planning 101: Back to the Basics series to help you get started meal planning or maybe give you some new ideas if you’re already meal planning. To start things off, I’m sharing today some fun meal planning board tutorials and ideas that I found on Pinterest to hopefullly inspire you to get organized with your meals too.
Enjoy! Now let’s get organized and start some meal planning!
