Let's Be Productive!

One of the first messages my pastor preached this year was about the importance of productivity to attain God's best for your life. I am all in!

Here is what I have been up to making things more productive in our house.


Early To Bed, Early To Rise. 
Trying to get up at 5 with the hubby but so far 6-6:30 I am downing coffee, and reading for the day before I wake up my little ray of sunshine :-)

Budgeting.
Two words, EXCEL SPREADSHEET. I'm tracking all (most of) our spending so we can be more a financially savvy household.

Giving My To Do List An Upgrade.
I just got the free "Wunderlist" app and so far I like it. It syncs from my laptop to my phone so no matter where I am, I can amend, add to, or, my personal favorite, cross things off!







Being More Organized.

The weekend is when I wash, press, and fold for the week. I bought this organizer on Amazon to help me lay out all of the little one's outfits. Now I don't have to use brain power trying to find and matching clothes.













Planning Meals.

Well, I'll sort of be doing the planning...I saw a deal on Eversave for 6 months of meal planning at Relish that was too good to pass up. It is
supposed to save us money on groceries because they even make your grocery list! I'm excited!




Practicing Better Overall Time Management. 
I am scheduling things AND sticking to it! Homework time is for homework - not blogging. Family time is family time. And everything is going to actually be written into my schedule. I know things won't be perfect, but planning out my days can't do anything but help...



How have you made changes to make 2012 your most productive year yet?
