With the new year about to begin, many busy parents are putting GET ORGANIZED at the top of their resolutions list. I’m no different. I always have grand plans to de-clutter my home, organize my bookshelves, clean out the pantry. The only method of organization that really works for me is to write everything down. If I take a few moments at the beginning and end of each day to reflect on what I accomplished versus what I need to complete, it helps get me motivated to stay on track. I’m the worst at following through on things (just ask my husband!), but I really do try. And, sometimes, trying is the first step!
For the new year, I decided to switch to a new disc bound binder. I was able to customize the insides with colorful printables and note pages. I started making my lists for 2014: to clean, to organize, to DO. I also added in a budgeting section.

I, of course, make sure to track meals for the week consistently. My meal plan has a new home in this disc bound notebook. I meal plan using eMeals, and it saves a LOT of time. I’ve tried a few different plans throughout the years–clean eating, paleo, low carb, portion control–and I’ve been impressed each time.
One plan that would be good to try to help reach your New Year’s goals is the low-calorie plan: Eating slim doesn’t have to mean cutting out your favorite foods. With the eMeals Low Calorie plan, enjoy a varied meal plan with your favorite dishes, from pizzas and pastas to salads and steaks, all with less than 500 calories per serving. Emeals takes out all the guess work — each menu item is less than 500 calories!
