Meal Prep for a busy momma!

FacebookGoogle+StumbleUponLinkedInRedditBlogger PostEmailShare

This weekend we were supposed to go to Leavenworth for Oktoberfest with a group of our friends. One of the tough parts of parenthood is losing the ability to do what you want, when you want…like showering, sleeping, peeing…or having adult only time. (Note- don’t get me wrong, it’s 100% worth it…but also, 100% a reality!) We were unable to find a babysitter, and we had to opt out. Despite the disappointment, we had a very productive weekend!

Saturday I clipped both our kids nails (always a challenge), we cleaned the whole house, did laundry, washed all the sheets, organized Wesley’s room, replaced the Scentsy burners in our house (excited yet?) and organized the kitchen. Our spice/seasoning/baking area has always been annoying. Every time I try to find a spice I had to dig through ¬†four different areas and what felt like hundreds of containers. Would you believe that I found SIX containers of chili powder? Crazy, right? For most spices/herbs I had two to three containers I was able to combine. In the past, I could never find anything, so I just bought new jars of spices. What a waste of money- and space! Now, everything is easy to find and organized, which means less spending on things we don’t need, less irritation when cooking, and easier meal prep. I am a happy woman!

Check out some of our post regarding the War on Debt program- the debt we started with, the debt we have now, and cost cutting solutions we have found in the process.
