For a while now, I have been posting my montly menus on Facebook. Well, I decided to create a blog so that more people will have the opportunity to check in and hopefully be inspired. As for the name of the blog, Sherri's Sanity, that is what montly menu planning is for me; my sanity. With 3 young kids, I do NOT have the patience for the clock to turn 5 and have no plan for dinner, it just adds to the craziness to the "witching hours" (those insane hours at the end of the day where we, moms, try to jam-pack 4 hours worth of stuff into 2) I HATE the hours of 5pm-8pm. BUT I have found that in my (almost) year of planning monthly menus, I have been so much less of a headcase during that time. When mom is happier, hubby and kids are happier. AND their tummies will be filled with yummy homemade food; even better!!Now, this blog will definitely take time to put together. Once again, I am a mother of 3 small kids and although I wish I could just sit down and crack it all out, that just isnt going to happen. So, check back often and I will try and keep things rolling. :) Another thing that fills my bucket, so to speak, is crafting! So I'm sure that will come along on the blog shortly too. Happy planning!!!

This clearly has nothing to do with cooking or menu planning, but it's my blog and I can post what I want, hmph! How many of you use the side-stacking method for your kids' drawers??? I DO, I DO!!
I started doing this about 6 months ago when I saw it on Pinterest. It hasn't completely changed my life, but it has made a huge difference! Instead of re-folding entire drawers every.single.week I'm down to about once a month.  Since you can see everything, there's no digging :) I had to start folding clothes a bit differently but now that I've been doing it for a while it's totally habit.

Depending on the depth of your drawers (my son's dresser is much smaller than the girls') you'll probably need to fold pants in fourths and shirts in thirds. I lay jeans/pants on their sides and shirts with the round edge up (does that make sense?) This is also a huge space saver! I love this method!
