Baby Preparation | Maintaining Freezer Meal Organization | Part 4

Finding a system to maintain just about anything can be INCREDIBLY challenging!

Finally, after far too much trial and error, I can share with you our super simple system! The guess work for what is in our Freezer Meals freezer has been removed!


Baby Preparation | What’s In My Hospital Bag?

The time has come to discuss all things related to the Hospital Bag!

I had a very small emergency bag that I took with me to our quick, unexpected runs, but this was the real deal. The “you can come in, but you aren’t leaving without a baby” bag.

Today, I’m sharing with you how I knew what to bring, what I actually packed, and where I got some of the items.

I’m curious…
What did you pack in your hospital bag as a first time (delivering) mom-to-be? Did you over pack? Under pack? Let me know!

Baby Preparation |Pantry Organization | Part 3

Baby Preparation is still in full swing! About a month ago, I purchased clear bins to help organize our pantry as it was starting to get out of control and we were losing track of what we had.

I spent about two-and-a-half hours cleaning and organizing this area. Now, it is functioning beautifully and we have been able to maintain the organization and cleanliness!

Baby Preparation | Making Freezer Meals | Part 2

Holy freezer meals! The work is done, the food is made, and I am … laying on the couch!

As part of Baby Prep, I wanted to have a BUNCH of meals stockpiled and ready to be reheated. We want to focus on Baby Boy, the dogs, ourselves, and visitors for a while. Not breakfasts, lunches, and dinners!

BONUS POST | Updated Cleaning Schedule

Hello, bonus post!

I’m in full nesting mode and was really struggling with how to keep the house relatively clean and tidy so that we can all function better within it’s walls. I personally have a love/hate relationship with cleaning for one entire day every week. I get very overwhelmed, I lose the entire day, and I don’t think it’ll work once the baby is here.

So I prioritized, tracked, and planned out a daily/weekly, monthly, quarterly, and yearly routine. HOPEFULLY, we will be able to enjoy ourselves and our house more with this routine. Here goes: Operation Clean!

Also, with this bonus post comes some bonus material! I made our routines into downloadable, printable PDF files.
