happy monday! a new blog that i have been following, all that is good does this "friend makin monday" every week. each monday it is a different format, question & so i thought i would go for it today & play along. want to join the fun? go here
Today's task is to share as few or as many everyday, little tips that you use to make your lives easier. You know- all those special tricks you might have to cook, clean, raise kids, work in the yard, and on and on!
1 - i have a list that i keep in the kitchen (on fridge) & write things down when we are low or completely out. if i don't do this i will usually forget. ha
2 - my husband & i both write thank you cards RIGHT AWAY when we receive something. if we don't then we usually forget & then it never happens. which is sad.
3 - i am always doing laundry. i don't like a full basket. i may do more washes but they are smaller, so easier & quicker to put away :)
4 - i always go to bed with a clean house. i love waking up to everything in the right place.
5 - to keep clutter down we clean out toys/clothes at the beginning of every new season.
6 - i give myself time outs. i walk away & then come back to the situation/problem when i can talk & handle it better than when i am upset or mad.
