Five Busy Blogger Tools

Wednesday, September 26th, 2012

I have days where I’m coasting along getting a ton of work done then I have days like today where the day totally gets away from me and I’m frustrated I didn’t finish as much as I wanted.  Such is life.  Some days you accomplish much, other days, you’ve got to close up shop, relax on the couch, recharge, and tell yourself in the words of Scarlett O’Hara, “Tomorrow is another day.”   Since I didn’t get much done today beyond the morning dishes and responding to a few emails, I thought it the perfect time to answer a FAQ I get a lot: “How do you manage to do so much?”  Oh the irony! 

Here are the five tools this full time momma blogger relies upon most for time management, organization, and all that jazz.   

1. The “Mom Binder”:   I make one of these every year, it’s often called a Command Central binder, but it’s the one that’s filled with the school calendar, PTA information, homework policies, contact list, and sports schedules.  I store it in the family room computer armoire when I need to look something up!

Ask Me!

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

Hey everyone!  I’ve been feeling slightly under the weather today – it must be all that running around getting ready for back to school and my new exercise routine – I’m drained!  I decided to give myself the afternoon off with a movie on the couch and some homemade thirty minute minestrone in the hopes I’ll be reenergized!

Tomorrow (Thursday) is a great day for any of you with burning DIY questions – if you’ve got one be sure to ask it over on the True Value Facebook page where I’ll be sitting at my computer answering questions as they post.
