2017 Goals & Resolutions Printable!

Happy New Year, friends! We hope your Christmas was as magical as ours. It is hard to believe that we are just days away from saying GOODBYE to 2016, but I know many of us are more than ready to say HELLO to 2017!!

To help you plan for all the goals and adventures that lie ahead, we invite you to download our updated 2017 Goals & Resolutions Printable! {Links below}


As in years past, our printable has a space for you to write a goal for each category of your life. You can make these goals/resolutions as simple or specific as you want. We also have a blank space that you can use for something more personal for you or your family. Perhaps you are saving for home improvement, or a vacation, or perhaps you have a personal goal of starting your own Etsy shop or meeting the love of your life :)

And, back by popular demand, we have also kept a space for the "Word of the Year," which is best described as a word that you want to focus on all 365 days. My Word of the Year for 2017 is:

JOY

I want to be more intentional in finding joy in each and every day, even if it is only for a moment. It is so easy to get bogged down in the craziness of life and forget to do things that truly make us happy. Choosing joy isn't always easy, but I am going to try my hardest.

The purpose of writing out goals & resolutions isn't to make your life more stressful, but rather to encourage you to do more of what makes you happy!! Have fun with this list and use it as a guide for the next year. We may have some repeats on our list (I'm looking at you Health & Fitness. Ha!) but what's important is that we try. It's never too late to set a new goal…or achieve an old one.

Happy New Year, friends!!! Thank you for being a part of our lives and our dream. See you in 2017!

FREE Fall Printables!

Fall has always been one of my FAVORITE times of the year. The changing leaves, cozy sweaters, campfires, pumpkin spice everything...what's not to love? 

But as the weather starts to get cooler, we are all faced with the reality that summer is officially over and it's time to pack away the beach toys, clean up our yard and prepare for the winter ahead. With that in mind, we made some awesome FREE fall printables two years ago and they have been a big hit ever since. 


The two Fall checklists included in this set will help you keep track of all cleaning and maintenance both inside and outside of your home. These lists are also helpful to look back on each year to see what tasks got completed, and which still need to be done. 
{I'm looking at you "Garage Clean-out Day}.

And as an added bonus, this set also comes with a blank Fall Bucket List that you can fill out with your friends and family! We decided to leave this blank so that you can fill it with the things that YOU like to do each Fall. Our list has many of the usual outings, such as apple picking, pumpkin patch visits, camping, etc., but we also love to travel to Michigan and hit some of our favorite orchards and breweries. Have I mentioned how much I love Fall?!!

If you live in the Midwest, out weather is looking beautiful for the first day of Autumn tomorrow, as well as the entire weekend. So take advantage of the great weather and get started on your cleaning & maintenance now :)

You can download all of these lists in 3 different sizes by clicking on each of these links:


Please feel free to share our freebies wherever you'd like online, but PLEASE use the link to this post or our blog, and NOT the files themselves.

Thank you so much for stopping by our blog today! Let us know what you think of the printable by commenting below. 

Happy Fall!!

Spring Cleaning!

Spring

A word we've all been longing to hear {and feel} for the last 6 months. So now that the sun is finally shining and the flowers are blooming, it's time to open those windows and do a little SPRING CLEANING!!

To help you out in the process, we've put together two handy Spring Cleaning Checklists. The first is a list of yearly projects and tasks to be done in and around your home each spring, and the second is a blank checklist that you and your family can fill out together with more detailed tasks and projects. 




I've created the printables in 3 planner sizes, including 8.5 x 11 in case you want to hang it on your fridge or family bulletin board. You can download them all HERE.

And don't forget all the little helpers around your house! We have a fun selection of kids Chore & Reward charts that can be customized with a variety of different tasks and responsibilities.

Each of our kids has their own and we hang them on the fridge.


You will notice that I laminated both the charts and the chore/task cards and that is simply so I don't have to reprint a new chart every week. It also gives me the ability to change out certain chores or tasks throughout the week or month. For example, if my daughter doesn't have homework one day, I can swap it out with something else. All I do is use Poster Putty on the back and they easily peel right off and I can restick them over and over again.


To check off her tasks, my daughter prefers marking her squares with these little pink magnets we found at Target. My son, on the other hand, likes to use markers so we use our washable Crayola dry erase markers and they wipe right off each week.


 If you've been struggling to get your kids to help around the house too, or if you are wanting to keep them on a routine during the school year AND summer break…be sure to check out our Personalized Kids Chore Charts


Looking for an adult Chore Chart? We've got you covered there too!! This freebie has been a HUGE hit for adults and older kids who are looking for an easy way to track weekly chores and tasks.



It's nothing fancy, but it certainly does the trick! Just make a list of your household chores and then check off the days you complete them. Most cleaning gurus will tell you that laundry, vacuuming and pick-up should be done daily, while other things like bathrooms and windows should be done weekly. You can download a copy of this chore chart HERE.

We hope that all of these fun printables will help you get your Spring Cleaning underway and keep you on track all summer long!
