1. Create a ‘command centre’

Choose a central area in your home – like the side of the kitchen fridge – to create a command centre for your family’s calendar, meal plan and shopping list.

Look for a large calendar with a block for each date where you can write in appointments, schedule workouts and note family birthdays.

Use stick-on vinyl or stick-on chalkboard paper to create a chalkboard shopping list on the side of your fridge. As you notice something needs replacing, write it on the chalkboard. When it’s shopping day, snap a picture of the list with your phone, grab your reusable shopping bags and you’re good to go.

You can add your weekly meal plan to your calendar or use another section of chalkboard stick-on paper for your meal plan.
