5 ways I prepare for the work week on my days off

Sharing is caring!

Hello my Phat friends! If you are new here than pull up your socks, you’re in for a wild ride. If you happen to be a repeat offender than you know the previous statement was a lie :p. Let’s talk about work.

As you can see from the title today’s post is simply a list post. Just a couple easy things I do during the weekend to help out future me during the work week.

5 ways I prepare for the work week on my days off

1) I always do my laundry at the end of my work week (either a Thursday or Friday) right after I get home.  I don’t know about you guys but I dont enjoy spending my free time doing “chores”. I prefer to get that shit out of the way while I’m still in work mode.

2) meal prep. This can be as simple as chopping up a few onions, or washing berries or other fruit and putting them in containers.

3) personal care. For me this always involves a hair treatment ( this doesn’t have to be expensive, there are many different kinds available) and a face mask.  This could be a simple sheet mask or a full on can’t move your face charcoal mask. I really like to use the ones from Dermalogica. They have a hydrating one that really helps if your skin is dry.

4) Get outfits ready for the next week. I wear a “uniform” (ugly maroon tshirt with the company’s name on it) and leggings because I move a lot. So for me this is incredibly easy.  For people who have a choice in what they wear I suggest putting some outfits together and hanging them in your closet.

5) Make lists.  I personally am a very task oriented person. It helps me to have things put down so that I know what I have to do. These lists usually include tasks that need to be done around my apartment, grocery lists, appointment lists ect.

In conclusion

Those are just 5 examples of ways I choose to help “future me” on my days off. Other boring things I do are mostly cleaning. Its a little sad that I work as a cleaner fulltime then come home and clean some more, but oh well. That’s life :-).

What are some ways you use your  “downtime” to help out future you? Let me know down in the comments below.

Till next time

  1. This is organisation at its finest! I do the same thing with washing because l too hate that job! I could do with food prepping but I’m useless I. The kitchen! My biggest organisation, is that over the weekend, I sit and plan my creations for the week ahead, so l choose a blog topic and a vlog topic, ready to work on during the week. I also study, so l do a schedule for the week, working out how best to use my time. It’s always a loose plan,but helps me to see clearly what needs doing and the time l have available.

    Thanks for sharing your process!

  2. I love planning ahead! I definitely get my beauty stuff out of the way on the weekends and laundry, yes it has its sacred place but for me, thatโ€™s on Sundays because I find it to be kind of leisurely and fun. Especially ironing, because I do it only once in a while and when I do I feel like itโ€™s magical, lol.

    1. Lol, oh Rachel. Ya I don’t own a iron so that’s not something I do. My work uniform is just a tshirt and leggings so I wear that 5 days a week. Woot! Honestly doing laundry doesn’t bother me. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I spend time writing down my appointments and work schedules. Because I work two jobs and go to school, itโ€™s rare to have day offs. What I like to do is plan my week and try and do something at least once a week.
