Using Time Effectively

When I was working full-time, I had to have routines. Had to. If not, my household would fall apart. I planned and anticipated so I was hardly ever in a rush. Lunches were ready the night before, laundry was done and put away at a steady rate, and I arrived to work early every morning. Now that I don’t work outside the home, well, let’s just say my home could use some organization. I won’t make excuses. I have the tools to get this place in shape. For some reason I put things off until they need to be done immediately.

So this week I will work on establishing my routines again. If you’ve heard about Flylady, you know that the before bed routine is essential. I need to plan ahead so I can start the next day in a relaxed manner. And when the kids are busy, I can use those minutes to do something. A minute here, five minutes there. This is the way I need to work. Having some order will give me time and a peaceful feeling to create more!

What are your organizing methods? How do you keep your household in order?

  1. Thanks for visiting my blog today. It was fun being introduced to your’s. I would love to visit an exibition of 28,000 Moleskin journals….I don’t know if it is coming to Oregon but I would certainly go visit it. But, I have no tips for organizing time except we all need to be masters of “multi-tasking”.

  2. Thanks for stopping by, Jan! That tour won’t be in Oregon this year, but hopefully they will add more stops in the years to come. Multi-tasking is definitely the way to go with the little ones around! Take care!
