Two tips from Real Simple (love!!) - Save time in the kitchen
I got these two tips from Real Simple Magazine:
Idea 1: Put family members in charge of keeping track of specific
household staples. For example, the kids are responsible for knowing
when the cereal is running low and your spouse takes note of when the
coffee canister needs replenishing. Hang a board on the fridge that is
designated for grocery items that need to be purchased.
Idea 2: Schedule an hour on Sunday when the whole family pitches in to prepare meals for the upcoming week. Put the teenagers and adults to work slicing, chopping, and peeling. Let the younger kids mix salad dressing or roll ground meat into round balls.
