Life as a mom constantly contradicts itself-nothing is ever predictable and yet the day to day tasks can become overwhelmingly boring. I feel as though all I do outside of playing with and caring for my unpredictable kids is laundry, scrubbing and cooking!

The 25 Best Slow Cooker Recipes 5I use a fairly unorganized system for meal planning but it works so well for me and saves me a ton of money! When I plan ahead for the meals we will be cooking, then I make less trips to the grocery store and each trip has a dedicated list that I rarely stray from. This system works for someone like me who sometimes changes plans last minute and needs the meal plans to be as flexible (and unorganized) as I am, but for a more organized mom it may not work as well.Easy Holiday Appetizers & Desserts 12
