It’s important to me that each of my direct sponsors be an extension of my mission here…to create organizing junkies everywhere!! Be sure to read below to find out how each of these fantastic businesses can assist you on your quest to get organized, simplify and de-clutter. In this sponsor spotlight, I’ve highlighted any specials, promotions, posts, discounts and/or any workshops that may be available to you at this time.

Crystal from Crystal & Co is a mom to five boys and is a huge believer in easy recipes. Over on her mommy resource site she shares with her readers an index of over 100 real easy recipes plus other resources to help you with your menu planning. Her most popular recipe to date is for easy Crockpot Ravioli.

Her ebook titled, How to Meal Plan, A Step by Step Guide for Busy Moms is a great ebook to help you get dinner on the table every night. Of course it won’t actually prepare your meals for you but it does provide tips, recipes and printables to get you going. I honestly think menu planning is one of the first places to start on your organizational journey but I know it’s not easy for everyone to implement. Whether you are a menu planner newbie or simply need a menu plan refresher, this ebook can help!

Also if you are stumped with what to make for dinner each night and limited on time (who isn’t?!) then be sure to head on over to Crystal’s real easy recipe index for inspiration!

You can also find Crystal on Facebook and Twitter.

Make 5 dinners in 1 hour is a menu service that helps you make family dinners quick and easy! Michelle is a wife, mother, blogger, menu planner and food lover and she created this service to help busy moms like you get dinner on the table and ditch those drive thru dinners. She will teach you how to spend just 1 hour in the kitchen, once a week, to get 5 healthy dinners assembled and ready to cook on those busy weeknights.

Your monthly membership will include a new menu each month with 4 weeks of meal plans. Each menu plan includes a menu, grocery list, cooking hour directions and heating instructions. Each menu is easy to read and follow. They have step by step cooking directions to get you in and out of the kitchen in about an hour and have 5 dinners in the refrigerator ready for your busy week ahead. Mess up the kitchen just once a week! There are 3 different meal plans to choose from: classic, clean eating and gluten free. Receive a free sample menu here.

And brand new to the 5 Dinners-in-1 Hour line up is an all new custom menu creator tool where you can select recipes from their database to create your own custom menu and grocery list which can be printed or sent to your smart phone. This is included with all memberships!

5 dinners in 1 hour can also be found on: Pinterest Facebook Twitter



Get Organized Wizard is a company designed to help you move from procrastination to action. Their programs help busy men and women take action toward a life of greater happiness, productivity and personal organization. Michelle has many products and programs available to help you with getting organized. You can view all of them and how they can help you by visiting her product page. Right now, for a limited time, you can pick up Michelle’s popular Goal & Priorities Diary along with her Organize in 5 Diary for $4.95 each.  This is a great deal as they are normally $29.00 each.

Two of the biggest obstacles to a calmer, simpler life and a decluttered house are:

  1. Having enough time to do the organizing and decluttering
  2. Knowing where to start.

These obstacles are precisely why Michelle created the Organize In 5 Diary.  Because it breaks the process of decluttering and organizing your home into 365 x 5-minute chunks, even the busiest person can find the time to declutter and organize.  And because each task is set out for you each day, you always know exactly where to start.

Both diaries are interactive and printable and can be purchased here.

Also find Get Organized Wizard on Twitter and Facebook.

    I have been using 5-dinners-in-1-hour for about a month and I love love love it. Super easy and yummy recipes. I make 4 a week and have 1 – 2 leftover nights (we are 2 adults, toddler and baby).
