Sundays are our days for rest. And worship. And rest. And family. And rest. We work so hard all week – that by the time we get to Sundays, we crash hard.
But, we also love a good prep night, and we have started using late Sunday nights as a fast blitz prep night for the week. We wait until late – after 9:00 pm – and we BLITZ to prep for the week! We only take an hour or so, and it is so helpful! This allows us to wake up Monday morning with a fresh house, and a fresh perspective on the week. My husband and I have different things that we accomplish in that hour – and together make it the best-used hour all week. Weekly, our chores change, but this is a little checklist of what we try to accomplish in that one hour:
- Put away all stray piles
- Clean up countertops
- Vacuum if necessary
- 1-2 loads of laundry
- Me – 5 Minute Facial (scrub, mask, moisurize)
- Me – prep my snacks for the week (hard-boiled eggs, no-bake protein bites)
- Husband – clean up desk
That’s it! It’s not a huge list – just enough to make Monday morning so wonderful! Do you have a prep day or prep night? Please pass along any tips for making a good use of this “get me ready for the week” hour!
