Ditto ! I have a weekly menu and may move things around a little, but not alot. Its easier to think about it once a week than every day. Its the same reason I set my clothese out the night before.

For the weeks menu I start with the meat and veg that is on sale this week. That usually covers 2 days of protein and 6 days of veg. I then "go shopping" in the cube freezer to fill in the rest of the week's protein (all of which was previously purchased on sale). The kitchen side by side freezer has frozen veg (again - sale items).

Great! You're both invited, and you can clean behind the fridge and on top of the kitchen cabinets. I'll supervise.

I do the shower squeegee routine, brush my teeth, etc, but rarely have any other helpful routines or habits. I will go through a month or two being somewhat disheveled. I never make the bed, clean my office, workshop, car, truck, boat, etc. Then I'll get into some organizational habits/routines for a week or so where I organize/clean everything. I keep thinking that the good habits/routines will last, but I eventually find my way back to the disheveled stage.
