    Our January Monthly Meal Plan (and FREE Printable)

    Happy New Year!! I’m sharing a quick monthly meal plan with you, hoping it gives a little inspiration if you need new ideas for your meal plan this month!

    We usually keep breakfast the same from week to week, but I think we’re going to switch things up on Fridays and have pancakes (instead of muffins like we’ve had for a long time!).

    • Monday: Oatmeal
    • Tuesday: Scrambled Eggs (with toast or in burritos)
    • Wednesday: Homemade Granola with Yogurt
    • Thursday: Oatmeal
    • Friday: Pancakes
    • Saturday: Cereal
    • Sunday: Smoothies and Granola

    Lunches are also pretty routine… We usually have leftovers, sandwiches, quesadillas or snack lunches (crackers, cheese, fresh fruit and veggies, popcorn, whatever we can pull together quick).

    And here’s what we’re planning for dinner this month:

    1. New Year’s Snackies
    2. Sub Sandwiches
    3. Beef & Vegetable Soup
    4. Grilled Steak
    5. Homemade Pizza
    6. Navy Bean Soup

    Goal Setting in the New Year

    Can you believe the new year is right around the corner?! With a new year often comes reflection and goal setting, and if you’re anything like me, you want to keep it simple but effective.

    Grab a set of our Monthly Task Trackers for keeping up with your monthly bills or goals (read one book each month, have a monthly date night, send an encouraging card to someone), or use our Daily Task Trackers for those goals you want to work on more often (drinking water, daily yoga practice, bed by 10:00).

    What goals and tasks do you like to track in your planner? Let us know in the comments below!

  • It’s Not Too Early to Plan for Thanksgiving!

    It’s Not Too Early to Plan for Thanksgiving!

    Have you started making plans for Thanksgiving yet? 🦃 We’re a few days into November, and Thanksgiving will be here before we know it. It’s time to start planning! I wanted to share a few tips to help take away the stress of Thanksgiving prep this year!

    • Start planning now! It might seem a little early, but Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Jot down a guest list, think through your menu, and start writing down what you need from the grocery store. Download our FREE Thanksgiving printable to help you get started!
    • Keep it simple; or don’t. If you like baking from scratch, GO. FOR. IT. 🙌🏻 But if it doesn’t really matter to you, grab a pie from the bakery and spend extra time with your family. It’s okay to buy your whole meal if spending time with loved ones is what you want to do, but if it would fill your tank to cook and bake with your loved ones, that’s okay too!
    • Shop for groceries early. Have you ever tried to grocery shop the day before Thanksgiving?! Long lines and cars everywhere make for added stress. Get a head start and grab what you can now so you can take time to drink a cup of coffee with loved ones later!
    • Pause and give thanks. Thanksgiving is a day set aside in our calendar to do just that… Give thanks. 🙏🏻 Take a moment, even if it’s just a short one, to reflect on what you’re thankful for this year.
