WFMW: Organization is the name of the game!

So.....this is an old post but this month is all about organization so here you go. Happy Cleaning !!!

I thought I would share how I got under my kitchen sink under control. I had everything....well but the sink under there ! :) (Some of the stuff, I wonder how in the world it got there!!! )
I found this 3 pack of baskets at Walmart for $2. I then divided my hand soaps, sponges, dishwasher detergent, dish soaps, gloves and anything else I might need. (I may have a thing for hand soaps....don't judge me sister!)

It works for me because it stays neat and I can pull the whole thing out if need be....and that works for this crazy mama!!

Menu Plan Monday: The great freezer cleanout!

So I REALLY need to get back to menu planning. The month of December is too easy to take it easy and eat out and ~gasp~ not use coupons. I am good and ready to get back to order. This month my hubbie wants to re-do our pantry. That means using what we have in there. Creativity is the word that comes to mind so you may see some interesting things. :) I am a woman that likes to live on the edge. I am also trying to make my own pasta sauce for the very first time with a ton of tomatoes that I received and chopped and froze. Wish me luck !! Happy Eating y'all !!

Monday: Beef enchiladas, Spanish rice, chips and salsa

Tuesday: Grilled pork chops, broccoli, scalloped potatoes

Wednesday: Leftover buffet- if its not movin, you can have it. But mama is not cookin!!

Thursday: Pasta with homemade sauce and cheese filled meatballs, Bosco sticks

Friday: Fried fish, pierogis and green beans

Saturday: Pizza and salad

Sunday: Coney dogs with baked fries and mixed veggies

This is me.....waving hello !!!

So....... I have learned alot since adding to my brood. The most prevalent revelation is this.

Three is definitely more than two.

Thus, the break in blogging.

I have been trying to grasp my new new normal. And sleep. I think I remember what that is but i digress.

As life has gotten more into a routine, I have realized several things. (In which I will write more on this week. Well...... hopefully. :)) One of the things that really surprised me is that I miss writing. I miss its therapeutic benefits and I miss the moments of time that I carve out just for me. ~gasp~

So, this is me waving to my girlfriends. I am really excited about this new year and excited to see what the Lord has in store for our family and for me.

Happy New Year !!!
