Any parent of multiple children (and lots of one-child families!) knows that dressing for family holiday photos is easier said than done.
Who hasn't been there, frantically scrubbing at stains and tugging down sleeves while the photographer taps his foot? Worse, last-minute clothing issues don't lead to happy faces for the family photo.
This week, check the condition and fit of any outfits to be worn in family photo sessions. If garments need to be added or replace, add them to the seasonal shopping list. Save time and tears!
Before going grocery shopping, plan a "cook's choice" dinner, designed to use up leftovers. Toss the last bits of assorted vegetables and meats into a stir-fry, or chop and add to soup. French toast for dinner makes good use of stale bread and the last few eggs, while lasagne transforms scraps of meat and cheese into a hearty meal. After dinner, toss expired foods and wipe down the refrigerator. You're ready to shop!
