    Thanks for the organizer! I have printed it and am going to start it today. I couldn’t agree more, 5pm is the most stressful time of day for me. After working all day, everyone is starving, tired & hungry tempers are flaring and it’s up to me to get dinner going to start the nighttime routine. Thanks!

      Glad you like the organizer. :)

    I’ve been told I’m a great cook with no organizational sense. I am always at one of the two extremes – either I over-prepare an immaculate dinner, or I opt for junk food. I guess that’s a common problem for many early 20-some women. The organizer’s great and helps me stay away from either extreme. Now I need to follow it religiously.

      Laura,
      If it’s any consolation, you just described ME in my 20s to a tee. I’m proof positive you can change your stripes in this area. My advice – start with ONE meal a week. Pick a day and for the next month, always make dinner on that day. No excuses. Then the next month, add another night…  The biggest mistake I’d always make in my 20s was to try to overhaul my meal prep habits all at once. The gradual month-by-month approach is what ultimately worked for me.

    I make a whole bunch of meatballs at one time and keep them in the freezer. Last night I put a few in the crockpot with spaghetti sauce, then made pasta right before dinner time. Very hands-off and easy.
