Additionally, if you’re just lacking some inspiration on what exactly it is that you want to make for yourself first thing in the morning, we’ve got a seriously delicious (and also healthy) breakfast that gets us out of bed with excitement.

It’s easy to fall into a rut around this time of year, especially because we’re all at our wits end with slow-cooker leftovers, but there’s still not a plethora of fresh produce to choose from at the market.

If you need some ideas to breath life and excitement back into your desk lunches, we’ve got a couple ideas in mind with these easy meals that will make your weekday lunch feel like a picnic.

And because it’s that time of year when you should take any opportunity that you have to clean up your space, let’s talk about some organization tips. First of all, we’re looking straight at that fridge of yours. Want to know all the tricks to have it looking picture ready? Here is your path to #FridgeGoals. Second, let’s talk about how you can maintain that beautiful fridge. The secret is FIFO, and if you don’t know what that is, you’re definitely going to want to adopt this simple practice.

Congratulations–you’ve got plenty of ideas for next week’s meals, your fridge is looking better than it ever has, and it’s the weekend.
