Please join us for the Preparation Day Link Up. More information can be found by clicking on my page that says Preparation Day Link Up. My tip is not to do it all on preparation day, but do some work before hand. I find that when I clean and cook all on the same day, I am exhausted by the time dinner rolls around. If you can cook before hand, even if it is the night before, or clean the night before and then cook on preparation day, it helps immensely. You will not be as tired or as stressed if you have some things done beforehand.
