Organize {meal plan}

This time of year makes us want to organize.  Organize our closet, organize our homes, organize our menus.  I was chatting with Stephanie from Crockpot365 (a past feature) today and she told me she has this other site.  WHAT?  And I didn’t know about it?  Based on her 365 theory, she helps us clean up our act………….no really…….she’s got ideas to keep you going daily.

Totally Together Journal

You won’t find pretty photos to distract you……you gotta bring your serious game……..because we all know that cleaning is serious business.  YOU MUST NOT HAVE FUN.  :)

But she makes it do able.   Gives you a plan……a daily plan.  She makes it creative and we love that.  She has four categories:

Meal Planning

She has lots of tips for meal planning.  She also has 2 cookbooks.  I have the yellow one…….she sent it to me when it first came out.  I am even mentioned in the Thank you!  If I could have framed it I would have.  She thanked me for featuring her when her CrockPot365 blog was brand new.  She thinks it all because of me that she became popular.  As much as I would LOVE to believe that…….I think she would have been just fine without me.  But that’s my claim to fame….I’m in a cookbook!  I have tried many of her recipes and I love them.  They are all gluten free if you’re a wheat free person.  You can buy them on Amazon.
