Learning from Large Family Logisitics
I mentioned before that I was reading this book and I have finally started to implement some of the ideas into my family life.
I have assigned tasks to each day. At first the thought of giving jobs to each day seemed ridiculous, but now I totally get it. While mine are not exactly the same as the book, here is how my week is structured:
Monday: Office/paperwork day
Tuesday: Laundry and cleaning day (Shared areas)
Wednesday: Errands (Running around) day
Thursday: Laundry and cleaning day (Bedrooms)
Friday: Outside and pet clean up day
Saturday: Meal prep and bulk cooking day
Sunday: Rest and plan day
I am also trying to get the work done before 4 as she suggested. This way I am available for the kids in the afternoon. So far having a plan feels good. Keeping with the plan is another thing. I'll keep you posted.
Do you plan your days? What is your plan?
