1LW Thursday? And a FREEBIE!

Hello Everyone!!

Welcome to week 6 of  One Little Word Wednesdays Thursdays (oops!)!  Yesterday was just one of those days! I really do love this linky party that Chrissy and I have going. I am always so inspired by everyone's stories, and it keeps me accountable!
That's what this is all about, keeping each other accountable as we make little changes in our daily lives. 
I can't wait to see where each of us are at the end of the year!

You get to hear from me this week! Woot! I even have a little present for you, but that will have to wait. I want to share a bit with all of you about how I am trying to be more Intentional in my daily life.

There are people who live to make lists. 
They get this little buzz out of writing things down and checking things off. not one of those people.

At least not naturally.

However, I have discovered that my life goes more smoothly when I at least have some sort of plan. This is not my natural mindset. If anyone knows anything about Meyers-Briggs, I am the P to beat all P's! I have to work at this whole list-making, life-planning thing. It is work worth doing though.

That being said, I love it when I can find things that take some of the work out of the process. 

I would love to have a Home Management Binder.

I am slowly but surely working on finding systems that work for me and getting my binder put together. Hopefully someday soon I'll be able to share it with you. It's a work in progress. 

One piece I know will go in my binder is a chore check list.

I found this one from Motivated Moms on Pinterest, and it is great! She even has an option for getting a checklist that has chores and daily scripture readings! These are both things I struggle with, so that will be awesome!

Another thing that needs some serious organization is this little ol' blog. Somehow I doubt that my current system of "hey, what have I got pictures for? Yeah, that sounds good!" is going to work for very much longer. I found this fantastic FREE printable over at Infarrantly Creative

Not only does it have pages for project ideas, but it also has a monthly page for scheduling posts. I think this will be incredibly helpful, in both planning and keep track of things!

One more thing that I know for a fact is helpful to me is meal planning. There is something about knowing what I'm making for dinner each day that just makes the whole day feel more organized. I found these great week-at-a-glance printables over at Artsy Fartsy Mama. I just discovered her, and I'm in love! 

I like that these pages have a little spot for planning meals and a grocery list, as well as little blurbs for each day. I think these will be perfect!

And now, on that note, I have a present for you! I made this meal planner to print out and keep on your fridge. Laminate it, or put it in a page protector and you can use it over and over again!


I made it with a cute kit by LauraMarie Scraps

Alright! That's how I've been working on my One Little Word this week, I want to hear from you!

First, let me clarify a few things. This linky party is meant for posts about how you are living out your One Little Word. I love all of your crafts and projects, and I'm sure you are super proud of them, but this isn't the party for those! If you're looking for somewhere to link those up, my parter-in-crime, Chrissy, has a great one on Tuesdays!

  1. I really like my home binder. Mine came from Mom & Wife. I use it more than I thought and it helps keep important papers in one place so hubs and I can alway find them.

  2. I'd love a household binder. Should make one myself.

    Stopping by from Gussy!

  3. That blogger journal / calendar is awesome! I want to create one! And meal planning is amazing, I try to do that each week.

    I like how you used your 1LW this week!
