I don’t know about you, but at my house, when everything is super unorganized, Mommy’s not happy, and when Mommy’s not happy, no one is happy!

Well, I recently I stumbled upon an article about how being organized can actually improve your love life!  Even your sex life!  So, needless to say, I kept reading!

The article, which you can read here, had a lot of great tips – but it also got my wheels turning about things that my husband and I do to keep each other sane and happy!  No one said marriage doesn’t take a little work!

In a perfect world, you and your partner should meet weekly to discuss your plans for the week so that all that “business talk” doesn’t interfere with “mommy and daddy time” if you know what I mean!

Something I totally need to work on - tracking our finances and streamlining them!  Most couples fight about money more than any other thing!  Apparently organizing your bills and even saving money and time on your grocery shopping will make things at your house run more smoothly, leaving more time and energy for your family and love life!

Thankfully, at WGNA we have The Coupon Lady for help with that!

Another big tip for the gentlemen, please know, there is nothing sexier than a man who does chores, and lots of them!  So if you want to turn your lady on, throw in a load of laundry, and unload the dishwasher – before she asks!

And lastly, have some goals – for yourself personally, and for your family!  If you have something to focus on together, you’ll stay focused on the long run!  We have a few goals - it may sound a little dorky, but try it, it works!

Oh, one more thing!  I tell my husband this all the time… not sure if he listens!  Be a little romantic!  Instead of running out to catch a bite with your hubby or wife, plan something nice every once and a while!  Call a sitter, make a reservation!  If your partner knows that you put a little extra time into planning a nice evening… maybe he or she will return the favor!  (wink, wink)
