I don’t know what has gotten into me, but I am in a massive decluttering/purging mood!  I have such a desire to simplify my life as much as possible, and while lots of things may be out of my control, and your control, one area where we can take charge, is in how much STUFF we have that we don’t use, that just sits around causing disorder and frustration.  If you’re drowning in things, I encourage you to simplify too. It does wonders for your spirit!  🙂

Another way we can take charge and have some order in our lives, is to meal plan, and I’m here to help!  I have several free printables to aid you with this, and if you’re new here, I also publish delicious dinner ideas each week to get you started.

  1. I’ve never heard of hummus soup, looks yummy! So do the eggs in a biscuit, the store keeps putting eggs on sale and I realized today I have quite the surplus I need to use so they don’t go to waste. Hope you have a wonderful week!
