For a while now I’ve wanted to share a few of the things that help our busy household run a little smoother. There are 6 people living here, 3 of them under the age of four and let me tell you, things can get a little choatic. Keeping track of what I need to do around the house can easily get lost in the mix if I don’t keep written reminders and check them daily. Having a plan and streamlining all the little things makes life so much easier and leaves lots more time for what’s really important – having fun!
To begin with, I’m sharing our Master Grocery List. It’s a list of everything we regulary purchase at the local grocery store, not including toiletry items. I print a copy each week and keep it in the kitchen to check off items as they need to be replenished. This ensures nothing is forgotten and I can do a quick check through the list before leaving to shop.

Of course this is just a starter – I add extras to it each week, and surely there are some things you buy that I don’t and vice versa. Use it and edit it however you wish. Whatever you need to make life a little easier.
