How to control the chaos when you have a bunch of people living under one roof.
1. Add extra bins to your fridge to keep things from becoming a muddled mess.
2. Eliminate dinnertime stress and put together a menu planner.
Write your go-to dishes on sticky tabs and arrange them by type (pasta, veggies, protein, etc.). At the beginning of each week, you move the dishes you plan to prepare onto a calendar and then put together your shopping list.
3. Make a list pad and hang it on an easily accessible spot in the kitchen.
Installing it right beside the fridge is ideal, so everyone (young and old) will remember to add things to the shopping list as they run out or expire.
4. Keep an inventory on top of your freezer.
If you don’t know what’s in there, you probably won’t use it—that’s just wasteful.
