  1. My hubby and I do this too.:-) Thank you for sharing this tip.

  2. My husband and I currently don’t but this is a great idea and we definitely should start asap! This is a great tip to make sure we are both working towards the same goal during the week and working as a team. Thank you for sharing!

    1. So glad you found this Amy and I hope you and your husband get a chance to start meeting. It does help to make you feel like you are on the same team together and working towards the same goals. Best wishes to you 🙂

  3. Absolutely love this! My husband and I used to do a better job of this. I’m really hoping to get our weekly meetings back up and running soon. I feel like we’ve been under one major life circumstance upheaval after the other for the last three years. Just when we get on track, something throws it all off again. But I know this is helpful and essential for keeping us connected throughout the week when we communicate clearly before the week begins. Thanks for this reminder!

    1. I can relate to having to adjust our routines with one event after the other crashing in on us. It always seems that just when you have it together, something happens to wreak havoc on the schedule! 🙂 Hopefully you and your husband will find a chance to sit down together and create a little peace for your family.

  4. Love this!!! It is definitely a must to meet with your husband every week. We had one of those busy weekends this weekend and didn’t meet up. We are already behind on some very important decisions that need to be made. Thank you so much for sharing and I look forward to implementing a few of your ideas. 🙂

    Visiting from ABFOL!

    1. So glad you found it Jessi! Those busy weekends always through us off our game too and makes for some crazy days, that’t why we try and protect that time as best as we can. Best wishes to you 🙂

  5. This is a great idea! My husband and I are both people who love the idea of organisation, but sometimes do not live it out so well, especially when it comes to things like budgets and scheduling our time. We are always surprised when we look at the month to come and realize we have somehow managed to book up every weekend! We know that we are both much better when we are intentional about it, so this sounds like something that would really work for us. 🙂 Thank you for sharing!

    1. Claire I can definitely relate to that too. I love the idea of getting organized, but it’s the practical day-to-day stuff that always throws me for a loop! Thankfully there is grace. Hopefully you and your husband can start getting into a habit of meeting, even if it’s only for a few minutes.

  6. This is a great idea. I sit and make up my weekly plan on Saturdays when I’m drafting up my Small Victories Sunday linky recap and goals for the next week. I always jot down my menu plan and other goals into the weekly planner I developed to map out my week. While it is hanging on the pantry door for all who wish to see, my husband I don’t go through it together and we totally should! It would help us get on the same page so there are none of those last minute/unplanned, oh I needed you to do this or get that for me that throws off my plans.

    Thanks for sharing with #smallvictoriessunday and hope you continue to link up with us! Pinning and sharing!

    1. I post my meal plan in the kitchen too and it’s always funny to watch my husband stop by on Sunday afternoons and “approve” the menu for the week! 🙂 I hope you and your husband get a chance to start making a habit of sitting down together, even if it’s just for a few minutes it can really help throughout the week. Thanks for sharing Tanya, and I’m glad I found your link party too!

  7. I know someone who runs a business with her husband out of her house. They also have four children. She said her business would have never made it without a weekly meeting where they planned out their family and work schedules along with discussing things like collections. She said before the meeting they would try to discuss things over dinner which never worked.

    1. They are so smart! I don’t run a business, although this blog is starting to turn into one, but I can only imagine how communication and planning with my husband while working from home would be crucial. Thanks for sharing that inspirational story 🙂

  8. I love this post. My husband and I have been married 22 years but are always looking to grow as a couple. I am going to talk to him about this today (and I’m positive he will be on board…or else! hahaha 🙂 ). Thank you for posting!

    1. So glad you found this Julie and I’m glad that you want to start having a weekly meeting with your husband, it really has had such a positive impact in our marriage and we have only been married 7 years 😉

  12. Great idea, Victoria. People schedule meetings all the time at work, why not at home? Adds well needed structure to your personal life.

  13. Amy and I had both experienced the pain of divorce when we got married. A wise friend, knowing I was an Enneagram type 5, INTJ introverted personality and Amy was an extroverted, Elementary school counselor, suggested, “Jordan, you need to take the lead in putting energy into this relationship, or Amy might grow to resent your aloofness.” So I thought, this won’t for me spontaneously, I need a structure and hence the birth of our 10 simple-but-profound question weekly marrriage meetings. We’ve share this with numberous friends who said, “You have to make this public.” So we relented and did at Hopefully it helps others as much as it does us.
