There is just something really wonderful about the fresh beginning that is New Yearâ€™s. Itâ€™s Â a great time to savor memories from the year and also one of my very favorite times to look back at what we shared on this blog .I am so grateful for theÂ many loyal and supportive readers who have helped make this blog what it is. I am extremely thankful for all of you and look forward to the new year. Here is 2016 in review.
I have already shared the bestÂ recipes of 2016Â (based on page views) last week, and now I am recapping the best organization and planning tipsÂ I shared in 2016.
Organization and Planning Tips
Most recently, I shared how we saved a lot of money by taking time to menu plan each week. You can read how I did that and print your some free menu planning printables.
Starting on Friday, I will be sharing some menu plans to help you get some new easy recipes on your menu rotation. This is a new weekly feature series that will kick off the new year.
Travel Packing Lists
These travel packing listsÂ for men, women and kids, are designed to help you pack all your needed items for your next trip. There is also one specifically for cruises.
Planning a Bridal Shower
These are also very inexpensive to do, but just take a little planning. My daughterâ€™s maid of honor was great at picking some fun things to do, without being too corny. I have also included some free wedding shower printables to save you time, because you all know how I feel about time!
These Bridal Shower ActivitiesÂ Â were entertaining and fun. So if you are planning a bridal shower, check them out.
If you are planning a celebration, you may want to check out theseÂ Bridal Shower Decorating ideasÂ that I shared in the spring.
Besides these planning tips, we of course, did some organizing this year.
