If you are a homemaker it is easy to prepare meals and have dinner set and ready by 4:00ish. But what if you work full time? What do you do? Fast food!!!!!! No ma'am and no sir! Calm down, this worked for me when I worked full time. Prep meals the night before or use a crock pot (ex. pot roast or whole fryer). Don't be afraid of left overs and pasta dishes are quick and can be prepared in many ways. Also, another useful tool is to write out your meals for the week. This way you don't have to contemplate what to cook. All you do is look at your menu calendar. Here is my menu calendar, which is useful year round.
Prepare your small children's clothing before hand. Getting clothes ironed and ready for the whole school week is very helpful. But if its too much for you to do, just get them ironed and ready one day prior.
Fix lunches the night before.
Now, during the summer, I am a little more flexible, but I still stick to a schedule. A schedule is a must for young children. Here is my summer schedule for 2011
