Happy Summer, Freebs! *Eye twitch while double-fisting chocolate cake*
Anyone else…struggle (for lack of a better word) with summer? Keeping kids entertained, being productive, and saving your sanity (and wallet!) can be a SERIOUS challenge when you've got a house full of kids. Have no fear, Mama J is here! Today I'm sharing my 3 most effective Sanity Saving Summer Systems (say that 10x fast…) that have changed our summer around for the better, and I have no doubt will help your household as well! In this video we cover chore charts, bucket lists, allowance, behavior, screen time, boredom busters, exercise and getting kids outside, even keeping the house clean! It pretty much does everything but teach you French, I'm telling you.

It's all there!
Watch the video online HERE or watch below, then keep scrolling for the printables!
Not too shabby, right??
As promised, here are the printables to help you kick-start your summer systems:
HOW I HANG MY CLIPBOARDS:
- I got my clipboards for $3 from the Target dollar spot
- I hung the clipboards on my wall using Command Hooks for keys. They are just slim enough to fit in the clipboard hole, but strong enough to hold them up on the wall. And the hooks won't damage your paint!

(Just print these sheets on your printer at home as an 8.5×11 standard print. Print on card stock for a firmer solution, and keep it in a clear sheet protector so dry erase markers can easily wipe off.)

If you want to print this huge like we have it in our house…
You just go to Costco.com, and you'll select POSTER PRINT.
Then, you upload the printable JPG, and have it printed as a 20×30 poster. You will then hand-write your bucket list items on the black lines I created on the printable poster!
There you go! Hope these systems help save your sanity(ish), like they have mine.
