Menu Plan Monday: SUPER Busy Week

Sharing is caring!

Yep, I have another super busy week.  Where am I going to find the time to get everything done that needs to be done so that I can go out of town?  Yes, I am going out of town AGAIN.  For the month of July, this is the story of my life.  I think all camps and competitions happen in July.

Yet, in all the goings on, I have to work and clean.  So, in addition to these quick and easy recipes in this Menu Plan Monday: SUPER Busy Week, I have included a couple of my favorite strategies to help me get things done.

Anyway, enough about all the crazy things I have allowed to go on my schedule. LOL!  Let’s get down to my menu plan.  I am so ready for school to start!  I function so much better when my family is on a schedule!

More Resources to Help You Get Stuff Done:

The (aff link) Getting Things Done book at Amazon is my go-to.  I think I have this system memorized and refer to parts of it regularly.

I also love these 100+ getting your home organized tips.

When I am really feeling overwhelmed, I do a brain dump before sorting the tasks into “like” items and doing block or bulk work.
