Organizing Tips to Help You Simplify Your Life

Hey there! Tara here. Today’s post is a little different from our “norm” because I’m really excited to share a personal project with you. If you’ve been following along with me this year {especially on Instagram stories} then you know that I’ve really been trying to be more intentional, especially when it comes to date night. Since our miracle baby Tasher came along, things have been a little crazy. GOOD, but crazy! You moms know what I’m talking about. Motherhood is a tricky balancing act. And there never seems to be enough time for everything to get done. Diapers, dishes, laundry, grocery shopping, cleaning, budgeting, meal planning, cooking, etc. etc. The list goes on and on.

How the heck do you balance it all?

And that’s just the stuff that HAS to get done. I’m not even talking about the stuff that we WANT to do. We women wear a lot of hats and balancing all of our roles is no joke. {Seriously though, can we just take a quick timeout for a virtual high five or pat on the back? I am seriously in awe of all of the amazing women around me and all that they are accomplishing—whether they realize it or not.} Anyway, even though this whole motherhood gig is still pretty new to me, I’m quickly realizing that organizing and simplifying are the name of the game! If I’m going to have time and energy left for dating my hubby and enjoying my family {and that IS the whole reason why I started The Dating Divas in the first place}, then I have to do some serious prioritizing.

So since the beginning of this year, I’ve been on a mission to find secrets, systems, and “shortcuts” for all the not-so-fun, but necessary things in life in order to make time for the BEST and more IMPORTANT things! Because although I do a lot of important stuff day in and day out, including running this site, creating a healthy and happy marriage is by far the MOST important. 

The first thing we did to organize and simplify date night was to start our #GetYourDateOnChallenge (check it out!) So far, it’s been a huge success! We’re having so much fun and I love seeing all the dates and ideas that you guys are sharing. I have quickly realized that in order for Jamie and I to make date night happen we have got to have a plan! I’ve also realized that with my busy life, a fun out-of-the-box date will NOT happen unless it is prepped in advance (ya feel me?). So, I decided to get ahead in my date night planning and wanted to show you exactly how I am doing it! I’m hoping that by sharing this it will help a lot of you as well. 

Pre-Planned Date Night Kits

You guys, this date night hack has been a lifesaver for me! These Date Night Kits are such a fun and SIMPLE way to prep and store dates ahead of time. These labels are great because they tell you everything you need to know about the date that is prepped inside. If you are planning your dates far ahead like me, chances are you MIGHT forget what is inside (mom-brain is real guys!) so these labels are a MUST! Plus, they look so cute and organized (a win-win in my book!). To prep, all I did was print off the date labels and ordered some basic large envelopes online (Amazon prime saved me!) and glued the envelope labels onto each one. I can’t wait to show you what I have decided to fill each envelope with! So far I’ve got May-August all ready to go. I’m going to put links for everything that I included in mine below, in case you’d like to do the same thing. {And keep reading because I have some SUPER exciting news to share with you after that.}

TIP: These envelope labels can be printed OVER and OVER again so feel free to use them year after year. They also make the BEST wedding gifts! Just print an entire year’s worth, fill them with fun date ideas from our site and you seriously have the BEST gift for a newlywed.  A way for them to actually better their relationship and spend time with one another.

May’s Date: Discover a New Town Together

Date Night Prep

I wanted to choose a date that got Jamie and I a little out of our neighborhood bubble so I chose this Discover a New Town Together Date. It’s free and easy to print straight from our site! The date consists of jumping in the car and following the exploration tasks on the card provided. To prep, I printed and folded the tasks brochure. I also cut out the conversation starter cards so that we have some fun topics to discuss on our drive. These printables alone make a complete date but I wanted to throw in some fun extras. I decided to add in our favorite snack (nobody wants to be stuck in the car with a hangry spouse—ha!) and this fun banner. I threw all of these things in my envelope and marked the front to fit the contents that were inside.  If you are looking for other ideas to throw in, think brochures for tickets to local attractions, a Bed and Breakfast Reservation, or a sticker or keychain of some sort that references your town or state, they’d all be perfect additions!

June’s Date: Outdoor Movie Night

Summer Date Nights

One of Jamie’s favorite kind of dates is going to the movies (boy does my man love the movie theater!) but enjoying the movies outta the house has been hard with our little baby so I am planning on creating an outdoor movie experience in our backyard!  To prep, I went ahead and printed out this FREE Double Feature Movie Date from our site.  I also grabbed:

I threw them all in my date night envelope and marked off the details on the front! If you are looking for some more ideas, I thought of these other fun items you could also include in your envelope:

July’s Date: Water Date Night

Summer Date Night Ideas

Here in Colorado, it gets PRETTY hot during July so I know that a water date is going to be a big hit with my hubby. If you know Jamie, you know he LOVES his sports so this date is involving three of his favorite things (ie. #1 me in a swimsuit ha!, #2 the sun, and  #3 sports!). To get started, I printed out this FREE Water Balloon Basketball date from our site. The idea for this date is simple, you fill water balloons full of water and try to get them through the hoop! Like basketball minus the dribbling and a whole lot wetter! I am planning on Jamie and I going head-to-head with a prize in mind for the winner (maybe a 10-minute massage? We’ll see!). To my date night envelope, I added empty water balloons (these looked cool and easier to fill up!) and 2 pairs of fun sunglasses for Jamie and me to wear. I also ordered a little kid’s basketball hoop. It won’t fit in the envelope but I know it’s something our little Tasher will love to play with when he is a little older so I went ahead and bit the bullet! If you already have a hoop… win-win! You can also find simple cheap-o hoops at the dollar store!

Here are a few more ideas to throw in your July envelope:

August’s Date: Ice Cream Date Night

Summer Activities

August is another hot month so I wanted my August date to involve a fun way to cool off. I decided on a date that would involve cold AND sugar. Can you guess where I am going with this? Ice cream! Jamie and I love our sweets and ice cream is one of our favorites. I first printed off these fun Ice Cream Date printables from the site.  There is a cute invitation linked up on the post as well as some fun Truth or Dare question cards.  I printed it all and cut it out! In my August date night envelope, I threw in these awesome color-changing spoons and these adorable ice cream napkins.  I also grabbed some cute bags full of our favorite candies and ice cream toppings. As for table decor, I added these fun ice cream table toppers (they can fold up flat), this cute banner and the most perfect tablecloth (I can’t wait to use this over and over again for future parties!).

If you’re looking for some more ideas, I came across these fun items in my search!

And that’s it, my summer dates are all pre-planned, pre-prepped and ready to go! Hopefully, now YOU have lots of ideas for some super fun and easy dates nights too. If you want to go the same route as me and make your own date night kits, I have the BEST news for you…

Our Date Night Kits are currently part of an amazing homemaking bundle!

Ultimate Homemaking Bundle 2018


Have you heard of the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle?! I’m pretty positive that most of you have since everyone went crazy for it last year, but if you haven’t, it’s a bundle especially for wives and moms to help you organize your life and balance all the different roles you play. When they reached out to us to be a part of it, we knew that our Date Night Kits were the perfect contribution to help make date night easier. But when I saw everything else that was included, I seriously got so excited to dive in and personally try out the products that I thought would save me the most time and have the biggest impact.

And guys—this bundle has been a game changer for me in so many different areas of my life. {From meal planning to working out to saving money.} You get access to an extensive library of homemaking resources but here are my TOP THREE favorites that I’ve tried so far and totally recommend…

#1 The Complete Grocery Budget Solution by Elise New (valued at $49.00)

Homemaking Bundle

This eCourse helped me transform the way I grocery shop and plan my menu. I saved serious $$ just in the first week! The videos are super short and the tips are easy to follow but make a big difference.

#2 Suzanne Bowen Fitness 3-Month Subscription by Suzanne Bowen valued at ($39.99)

Homemaking Tips & Tricks

I got into this because going to the gym is just NOT in the cards for me right now.  I like this one because I can literally do my workout WITH my baby next to me. My favorite part is that it takes the guesswork out of figuring out what to even do for your workout routine. She has lots of plans to choose from OR you can customize your own plan to fit your own needs and equipment. I like how most workouts were around 30 minutes which is about all of the time I have to give right now.

#3 Freezer to Slow Cooker Meal Plan 3-Month Subscription by Sarah Robinson (valued at $29.99) 

Food Prep

I am currently using an awesome meal plan service (I will tell you about it soon!) BUT this was the perfect thing to supplement in when I just don’t have time to cook! I like to make ahead a couple of freezer meals or use my Instant Pot on days when I know that dinner won’t happen otherwise. Jamie has been loving these recipes too and it’s helped us to not eat out as often.

There are seriously SO many other awesome resources included but honestly, I would get the bundle JUST for those three. Even if those three don’t speak to you, I HIGHLY recommend that you go check out the bundle for yourself and browse the other areas and topics that are included. There is seriously something for everyone! And it’s a steal of a deal that you don’t want to miss. They only do this once a year. And the products are different every year.

Find the things that speak to YOU and will help you simplify and enjoy your role as a wife and mom more.

Personally, I know that I’ll never be able to use all the resources. {There are seriously 129 products included!} But it’s my plan to just pick one thing at a time to focus on. And even if I never use more than just 3 or 4, it’s TOTALLY paid for itself and more than worth the price. When you see the price you’re going to be FLOORED! It’s a total no-brainer! Are you ready for this…..

Grab your bundle for just $29.97!

Sadly, this bundle sale has ended! But we have something in the works coming to you soon! We can’t wait to let you know when our next bundle is ready!

And I almost hesitate to say this because it’s going to make it seem even more unbelievable, but did we mention that there are BONUSES? Lots of bonuses? Like a free 1-month subscription from BookRoo and KiwiCrate? And those are just two of them. Do yourself a favor and check this out stat. And of course, if you have any questions, comment below and we’ll do our best to answer them right away.

I am an outgoing and fun-lovin’ gal who was lucky enough to marry the man of my dreams! You could probably say I am an “extreme extrovert” as I LOVE to talk and be around people! I love ANYTHING creative and am not a fan of the “norm.” My favorite things in life are my family… especially my HOT husband, my friends, and my faith! After a long infertility journey, we brought two miracle babies into this world via IVF and then a SURPRISE bundle of joy recently decided to join us. I have a passion for life and I am having a BLAST running this website with some of my closest friends. Life just keeps getting better and better!

  1. I absolutely love this! I have my year of dates binder I’m doing this year so I couldn’t do it now but could definitely use the envelopes for next year. I added the discover a new town date to my binder since we are moving at the end of the month and it will be a new town to most of us. I thought it would be so much fun. I of course also have the moving organization binder. And I’ve also been doing freezer to crock pot meals this past week and am planning more right now. It’s made trying to prepare for a move so much easier!! I’m going to have to beg my hubby to let me get this!

    1. YES!!!!! You NEED this bundle- it’s such a crazy insane deal. Even if you can’t use it now, you should snag it while you can and save it for later. It ends on Monday.

  2. I love this bundle and look forward to it every year. This year’s looks incredible! LOVE these summer date night ideas. Thanks for all the suggestions!
