4. Let’s start the month off right and make a list of the things that are causing you added stress. Make a list of the big ones as well as the little ones. Is something in the house that’s broken, is there an insurance issue you need to take care of, do you need an extra trash can upstairs to help keep things tidy?

5.  Once you’ve thought it out and made your list, next plan a day this week as your ongoing problem day and finally resolve those issues that need to be resolved. You’ll be glad that you did!

6. If you are doing food storage, time to check the schedule and buy next on the list. Don’t forget to put some cash in there as well.
