Scheduling Tips

Let your children set the breakfast table each night for the following day.

Plan activities with your kids that you also enjoy. You will be more likely to spend real quality time involved with them than if you force yourself to do something you dislike.

Create task lists for different family members and post them on the insides of closet doors.

Save time and money by clumping errands together. For example you could buy all of your occasion cards for the year during one trip... in which you might also mail a package, etc.

DELEGATE: Mothers don't waste time on tasks that other family members can and should be doing. Working together is good for everyone and eases each individuals' load.

WRITE down your goals. And remember, one of your major goals is to get organized so that you can work toward your mission in life.
