It’s the Little Things #50
Happy Friday! Here are my favorites from the week with you – it might be a quote, a print, what I’m reading, a favorite podcast, a playlist, a recipe, a helpful tip, a cleaning product, or something I added to our home. Basically if it’s something little that I feel is shareable or if it’s something I’d bring up to a friend over coffee or on the phone, I’m probably going to share it with you here. Here’s a link to all of the posts in this series.
Do you do chore charts with your kids? We’ve been structuring our days with daily and weekly tasks at the beginning of the day and other activities later. Work first, fun later is the motto and it works with the kids (and me too). Things get done a little more quickly and it sets our days up for activities, relaxing, and downtime. We love downtime. Here are a couple posts what talk about chores and how we do them at our house. If there’s another kids topic you’d like me to cover, tell me!

I shared the book Digital Minimalism a couple months ago in my Summer Book Stack post and I’m loving it – just thought you might want to give it a look. It validates how I have been feeling about social media and screens in general. If nothing else it’s food for thought but it also lays out a plan for reducing the amount of time we spend in front of our screens. For me, I’m taking it on as a productivity challenge so I can spend less time online and get the same amount or more done.
What have you been enjoying this week? Any little things to share?

Thank you so much for your posts, blogs, and advice most of all the free printables. What I did last week was that I took the printables and laminated them. Placed them on a book ring , and then I hung them like books in our kitchen where our little command station is. I love it because, my husband or the kids, or myself can go to these books to see what we need to do that week or day.
