Home Time Management Step 4: Create Your Action Plan
Without a doubt, this action plan is going to either set you up for success or set you up for failure.
Nothing gets accomplished without planning … even if it's unconsciously.
So, now that I've convinced you that you need an action plan I guess you're wondering how to create one?
I can give you a few general guidelines.
Creating Weekly Meal Plans
Sit your family down and have everyone help think of their favorite meals. Keep collecting new ideas and aim to have recipes/meal ideas for 30 days, 60 days, or even 90 days or more.
Getting Your Children Helping with Chores and Laundry
The very first thing you'd need to do is to teach them what they need to do. This may take a week or more of you keeping a close eye on what they're doing to make sure they 1) Remember what they should do, 2) Remember the order (if there IS one), and 3) Actually DO what they should.
For instance, if you're teaching your 6 year-old to clean the bathroom he may need several days to create his own little routine. Just make sure that he does everything you want him to do right from the beginning… even if it takes him a long time to get it down.
Getting and Maintaining a Clean House
If it's been a good long while since you've attempted to clean house then… by all means… start in one corner of one room.
And don't feel bad about it either.
There are… literally… hundreds of different ways you could begin action in this area.
The next time you're cooking cook double. If you're browning hamburger then brown an extra pound and freeze it. If you're making spaghetti sauce then cook double and freeze the rest. If you're making a meatloaf, then mix a double portion and freeze the extra.
