Don't Overlook These Totally Doable Ways To Make Your Busy Mom-Life, Better

 Busy moms the world over know one inherent truth: if you want to get something done, give it to a busy mom.  Now it doesn’t matter if you’re the kind of woman that has all of your friends asking “I don’t know how she does it?” or if you’re more the “thank God for the last minute” kind of mom, we could all use a few tips that make our lives easier, and here are 4 of the very best.

Ever heard the saying A habit cannot be tossed out the window; it must be coaxed down the stairs a step at a time?” well it was true for Mark Twain when he said it then and it makes perfectly good sense today too.  The first step to creating real harmony in your home life and your life by extension is to introduce the kind of habits that everyone can get behind and that contribute to the flow of your family’s lifestyle.  It’s never going to be easy in the beginning, especially if you have teenage kids still living at home and perhaps your home life routine has been more Superbowl game day than Tibetan spa.  But it’s never too late to start and if you have young children, never too early.


We’ve always known that a well-organized wardrobe makes life...better.  It feels great to have spent the better part of a morning (day) simply unpacking everything from an overstocked and tired wardrobe reorganizing it to the point of Secret Service standards.  But if you’ve ever wondered why it makes your life seem better, you’ll be happy to know that it doesn’t just make your life seem better - it can actually make it better.

A well-organized wardrobe promotes mental clarity and an overall sense of accomplishment and well-being.  The process of physically decluttering a space has also been linked to mental decluttering and this is akin to “clearing the cache” on your computer.  Basically, you’re freeing up space to perform better overall.


The most important and one of the most rewarding jobs we’ll ever have as busy Moms is that of being the C.E.O. of “mom inc.” and just like a regular corporation, smart moms know that there’s always time to think of ways to do things better, smarter and faster.  There is an app for virtually everything you need to keep the home fires burning and if you want to be able to run that schedule and everything else, you need to get into it because going grocery shopping is so last millennium, right up there with hand signing and delivering documents.  Get your signature online and you’ll never have to do the last-minute document chase again.


Throughout your day you’ll find “pockets” of time where the temptation is to do nothing.  Now, heaven only knows you need to do just that from time to time, but these blissful moments of relative calm could be put to much more productive use.  Failing to plan is planning to fail so these moments are really good opportunities to rework budgets for example and to figure ways to save more money at home.
