Let's face it. Moms are BUSY. So, so busy. Between kids' homework, sports, music & other activities, taking care of the home, church responsibilities and perhaps working on top of it, there is just so much to juggle and keep track of. And that's only the basics! Boy, do I get it. In order to keep myself on track, and make the days a little easier and less hectic, I've implemented 11 different things into my day that while simple, make a HUGE difference, and help me organize for success!
I won't say they'll make things perfect, because life is life, and things happen. But they give me a leg up, and a fighting chance to do the things I need to do, and the things I want to do! I've discovered that keeping my life organized gives me so many more options, and just makes our home run so much more smoothly.

11 Tips for Busy Moms
A place for everything, and everything in its place.
This is my motto in life. I live by it, and it does right by me! It’s so much easier to stay on top of things when things are organized, and you know where they are. It reduces the amount of time you have to search for something you need, and gives you a better sense of what you have.
For example–I have a school lunch packing station in my pantry, and I can’t even tell you how much this has helped me! I’ve tried to create things like this throughout my house and in my drawers and closets, and truly make a place for everything. I teach my kids that when you take something out, you put it back as soon as you’re finished with it. That is still a work in progress!
