Free Printable Weekly Calendars for Stay at Home Moms
When you’re a mom, it seems like your commitments are never ending. Stay at home moms are much, much busier than people think because running a household is hard work! Between caring for the children, cooking, cleaning, doing laundry, making shopping lists, helping the kids with homework and all the other daily duties, it’s sometimes easy to let something slip through the cracks. That’s why free printable calendars are essential for all moms – those who work outside the home and those who work in the home. A calendar can keep you organized so that you know what all your commitments are at all times. You can plan your days so that you’re not overwhelmed due to forgetting something and needing to do it in a hurry. If you’d like to learn more about how moms can use our calendars, keep reading!
Why Choose Weekly Calendars Over a Monthly or Daily View?
A common question is whether a monthly, weekly or daily calendar is best. It depends on your situation as a mom. For moms who work outside the homes and attend frequent meetings or have frequent deadlines, a daily view may be best. For moms who stay at home (a full time job in itself), we recommend a weekly view. Why? You’re not likely to have as many appointments and deadlines. You’re super busy, though, so you need to be able to see everything at a glance, and a weekly calendar allows you to do that. You can see the entire week at once, so if you know you have an appointment on Friday morning, you can begin preparing for that early in the week. There’s another great way to use our free printable weekly calendars, which you’ll see below.
Free Printable Weekly Calendars for Menu Planning
Menu planning is a phenomenal concept. For years, we had stayed away from menu planning, thinking of it as a waste of time. It’s not a waste of time at all! It’s a great way to plan your meals ahead of time so there’s never that dreaded question, “What should I fix for dinner?” Even if your husband or one of the older children want to make dinner on a particular night, they know exactly what should be made. It makes running your household much easier. Taking a few minutes to an hour to plan your meals also helps you when you go grocery shopping. In fact, you can make your list for shopping as you plan your meals! The biggest benefit of menu planning, aside from saving you a considerable amount of time each week, is that it saves you money. You’ll be less tempted to go through the drive thru when you have a plan at home. You’ll also save at the grocery store because you’ll have a definitive list of everything you need, so there’s no need to go wandering the aisles for other things. Give it a try with our multicolor weekly calendars!
