Okay my first baby step is done. I have helped to organize my life in two areas with index cards. I bought a package of index card and two little index card boxes and then I started making lists. The first thing I made list of was dinners that I make. I separated them into the following categories: chicken, beef, pork, other and breakfast. I know breakfast isn't dinner, but sometimes it is and I firmly believe that cold cereal isn't breakfast so I need breakfast recipes as well. Then I put the name of the dish on the index card then listed the ingredients on the card. I didn't do the full recipe because I either have it memorized or written somewhere else so that felt redundant. But now when I go to make the weekly menu and grocery list life will be easier.
I was surprised at how many recipes I could think of that I make. And I keep remembering more and adding them.
The second list I did was all the chores (unseasonal) that have to be done. I separated them accordingly: daily, twice a week, weekly, monthly (once every 4 weeks), quarterly, twice a year and yearly. I found that I could add all the quarterly, biannually and yearly together for a group. I then wrote the chores onto index cards according to the week. I separated these into 4 groups, or 1 card for each week in a month. I left gaps on the cards to help me know which chore is in which group.
I put them in their box according to their week.
If this is unclear let me know and I will try to clarify.
P.S. I can't believe the amazing cake pop ideas coming in. There are only a few days left to enter if you haven't already done so.
