Happy Tuesday, Girls!!
Today I want you to think about game-changers in your life. I’m not talking about those HUGE moments…like meeting your husband, having a baby, or becoming a Christian. I’m talking about those small game-changers. The little things you changed up a bit that made your life a little bit easier. I’m sharing my Top Three and then I’m hoping you share yours with us in the comments. 🙂
The first game-changer is laundry. And this is a new one. I’ve struggled with this since I’ve been doing my own laundry UNTIL our last move. I changed my laundry mind set and it’s helped so much. Here’s my secret….do a load of laundry everyday. Wash it, dry it, and put it away. It’s that simple, ladies! I throw a load in the washer in the morning. Sometime later I switch it, and then in the afternoon or evening (whatever works for my schedule) I fold and put the load away. It’s SO much easier than letting the laundry pile up and having tons of clothes to wash and put away. Try it! Seriously!!
#2 Set that alarm
I’ve started waking up about an hour and a half before I get my kiddos up for school. In this time I have my quiet time, get some work done on the computer, check blogs, start my laundry, and I get myself ready for the day. This helps me just feel better about not being behind when I get the kids up. If you’re not a morning person, that’s okay….but maybe set an alarm to work for an hour after the kids go to bed?
#3 Write it down
My memory is the size of a nut. I’m talking a teeny peanut…not a large walnut or acorn. At the weirdest times and most random locations I’ll think of something I need to do so I’ve started just jotting down stuff in the notes section of my phone. At any given time, I might have a to-do list, grocery list, AND a menu for the week going on in there but it helps me remember things. My brain will let me down every time. I have a planner where I’ll add stuff as well, but I don’t carry it with me all the time. The phone is the perfect place to keep something that I think of at two in the morning when I wake up and remember Nixon needs a baby picture for school. 🙂
Now it’s your turn! My hope is that we’ll share these small game-changers and help each other out! What have you changed up recently that really made your life easier?? PLEASE SHARE!!!
