I’m a busy mama. A. Busy. Mama. If I don’t plan ahead and make a checklist I don’t seem to get things done. To make sure I take care of all the things I need to do, I break chores down into manageable chunks.
I’ve created monthly checklists so I can plan ahead and remember to get everything done. Having an April To Do Checklist not only helps keep me organized it also helps me save money.
Use this April To Do Checklist to remind yourself to replace your toothbrush and make-up this month. In a busy, busy life it’s much too easy to forget to replace your personal care items. You want to replace them every 3 months to make sure that they don’t pass any germs or bacteria on to you.
April is also a great time to get started on your Spring Cleaning by tackling your windows and bedding. Just make sure you wait to start on the windows until pollen season is over in your area.
Since April is when you file your taxes, take the time to sort and file your paperwork now. You can even do it while watching your favorite show with my easy tips.
A big part of my monthly planning is taking into account what items are typically on sale this month and evaluate what I need to purchase. Running through the checklist and a bit of planning helps me save money by purchasing the items I need at the best prices.
Be sure to take a minute or two to plan for birthday and anniversary cards and gifts. A few minutes spent now will save you panicked hours later.
