Menu 9/1 - 9/5

I've made weekly menus in the past and it helps out a lot. However, I haven't made one in a loong time. This time of year is pretty busy for us in the evenings(my boys play football), so I need meals that are fast and easy. If I don't have fast and easy, I end up in the drive thru. Here is my 1st attempt after a long drought at making a menu.

Monday: pork chops, potatoes, greenbeans
Tuesday: eggs, bacon, and toast
Wednesday: already boiled chicken with pasta and veggies from a bag.
Thursday: Hamburgers, frenchfries
Friday: homemade pizza
Sat: ?

I've been reading for a couple of months now. I've been completely inspired. I really do need all the help I can get with getting my life organized. Every month is a focus in one area of the house and this month is the entry area.

I found my inspiration and dug in. I made my kids a backpack station!!!! I didn't take before pictures, but I had coats on the hanger, a big basket of gloves and beanies on top, a binder full of warranties and information for my house on top, leaf for the table, bags, and the vacuum cleaner. No shelving, no hooks. The above picture is how it looks now. I put in a small 2 cubbie shelf, a shoe shelf on top of that, 3 hooks for the backpacks and jackets for 3 kids. In the cloth cubbie I have the hats and gloves for the winter. On top I have extra bags and a basket for something I don't know yet. Oh, I almost forgot. In the empy cubbie on bottom is where I put my purse.
Stop by and tell me what you think.

First Post

Well, this is the first post of this blog. What has inspired me to do this? It was the desire to participate on Organized Junkie's site. I love it there! August is the entry/foyer month so this weekend My husband and I made the front cleset into a backpack station. I'll post a picture of that soon. This is going to be short and sweet as my boys should be home from football very soon.
I'll be back.
