Part of eliminating “decision fatigue” is simplifying your life in certain areas so you don’t have to make so many decisions. Crystal talks about having a minimalist wardrobe. My wardrobe pretty much consists of tees from target and a good pair of jeans. But my closet could really withstand a good make over to reflect that. I don’t really need to keep items that don’t fit or that I don’t wear just for the sake of holding on to them.
For me, eliminating decision fatigue means planning our meals out so I can go through the week, or two weeks, with dinner time on autopilot.
So today after this lesson I sat down with my planner and looked at the whole month. I planned out as much as I could. We usually always do a crock pot meal on Thursdays because I work at my husband’s office that day. Friday we always have pizza, that is super easy and always a good reward since we clean the house on Friday’s too. Throw in a couple other family favorites and I’m done!
I used to have a cute dry erase board that I could display on the counter, but since we are living with my father in law right now, I’ve just used a magnet pad of paper on the fridge. I would love to make this system work a little better for me in 2016. I am currently working on revamping my planner system for 2016 and how I run things. I found this one on Amazon, but this board is one that I really really love. I love that you can reuse it and that everyone can see it easily, and it’s kinda cute too!
Do you meal plan? I would love to know how you do it!
Do you experience decision fatigue? In what area?
How could you simply your life so you don’t have too make so many decisions?
