Struggle to get organized? A great tool to organize meal planning ideas and other life compartments is through an organized digital notebook or custom printed agenda book.
One of the most fun digital notebook organizers that can put together easy meal plans is Clipix. Anyone else crazy about Pinterest boards? I am pretty much on Pinterest All . The . Time. My eyes are just feasting upon beautiful salads, elegant dinner dishes and delicate desserts. I love capturing gorgeous living room ideas, meal planning ideas and crafts to do with my kiddos. I have boards to refer to and boards to share of my favorite healthy meals. But when it comes to the week or month of meal planning I frequently ask myself “how can I compile these so I actually remember to make them?” Two websites that I love are Clipix and Evernote. Evernote is an app that can clip images and webpages and be sent to yourself or spouse to share. My hubby and I use it frequently to share ideas and articles. Clipix is similar and I love that you can create boards from webpages and Pinterest images. For example, I like to use it for meal planning. If I stumble upon a few ideas that I REALLY would love to try, I pin it then clip it to my Clipix board for exactly that week. Pinterest I forever refer to. Clipix is weekly referral for laying out a plan of attack. My Clipix board has our meals for each week, then it rotates into the next week and so on. I keep each menu item at 9 in case one night I don't want to make something. It gives a buffer of 2 extra meals.
So here is how the Clipix board works for meal planning ideas:
Set up a profile. Add the bookmark and “save it” button to your browser. Then when on a website or your Pinterest Board, simply “add clip” of the image to your Clipix board. It's super easy and their instructions are detailed with images to make setting up instructions understandable.
How many times have you just wanted someone to manage it all for you? Our brains are on overload on a daily basis consumed with information coming in from every which way. There are so many amazing software programs that work for individual needs and all those programs can work together. So here it goes… how to organize your Pinterest recipes for easy meal planning using Clipix:
- Create Plans, Weekly meal plans, a favorite room design or diy projects that you want to accomplish. Pinterest boards are most likely shown as Cupcake Recipe, Birthday Party Ideas, Quinoa Dishes, DIY Projects, For The Home. Now just take it a step further and make goals for yourself!
- Organize To-Do List boards by priority. For example, create a board for March, April, May, June, July, Christmas… etc. Create a board based off all your Pinterest posts for what you wish to accomplish each month.
- Make a vision board. Have a bucket list? Make it here!
Forward movement is the key to success. Having both visuals and writing things down is the best way to get to your goals. Creating visual boards of your goals broken down into hours, days, months and years is the best path to get to what you personally strive to accomplish.
For our family, I have a Daily Agenda Book to keep our overall life organized. Get all the free printable files including updated calendars here. And for our menu section I have set up our Clipix board into 3 boards. I have other boards for my own personal growth that I will probably share at a later time. Feel free to copy my boards on our Meal Plan Week 1, Meal Plan Week 2, and Healthy Snack Ideas I make during the week.
It is all about simplifying the day and finding what programs and methods works for you. This works for us for planning our meals by gathering ideas. I also use my Daily Agenda Book. Find what method works for you!
Cheers to the best organized healthy life!
