I seemed to have had yet another change in mood and outlook on life. It’s been about my home and son. I felt I wanted to bworking mom homemakere a better homemaker. For so long I have been running around being a single mom, driving everywhere, working, and trying to keep things in order. By the time I got home from work and made dinner, I was DONE. The whole cycle was making me feel unaccomplished and disorganized.

I started to look things up online and brainstorming ideas to fix my problem. It turns out, lots of other people felt the same way! So sure enough there are thousands of resources online. There are blogs everywhere with ideas and organizing printables to help you keep your home in order. However, most of the blogs are for stay at home moms or work at home moms. So there is a LOT of stuff that is not transferable to my lifestyle, but I have been able to customize things to fit my needs. In the next couple of posts I will try to give tips and ideas of what I have personally done to achieve my goals and become a better working mom homemaker.

Here is a general list of some of the things I’ve done and will cover:

  1. Bartering – can be amazing!
  2. Homemaker Binder or Folder
  3. Printables – todo lists and checklists
  4. eBooks
  5. Scheduling your day – hour by hour
  6. And eventually I hope to dabble into Menu planning
