My story is three boys, a house, a blog and an oil business.  Not to mention trying to be a friend, sister, neighbor, etc. etc.  There is honestly not much time left for me and I don’t make myself a priority!  Everyone has their own stories, but I do feel that these simple tips can apply to all!

1.  It’s OK to say no.

I know you want to do it all and not let anyone down but you, yourself are included in that anyone I mentioned and you cant do it all.  I found that saying no doesn’t mean no forever.  It means not right now and that’s perfectly OK!

2.  Prep the night before.

If there is anything I can do to help myself, it’s prep.  I know, I know…long day you are tired at night. I get it.  I am telling you though, having kids’ lunches made, your lunch made, clothes picked out and bags and backpacks ready to go by the door can save so much time in hectic mornings.  Oh and shoes…ALWAYS find your (kid’s) shoes!  LOL.

Having everything prepped is honestly key to smooth mornings because let’s face it…it’s SOOOO nice to be able to hit the snooze an extra time and still get ready to go without pulling all your hair out!

3.  Have a weekly Calendar.

Have a calendar and use it.  Whether that be on your smartphone, tablet, computer or the good old fashioned paper calendar.  Get one and use it.  You can find out here how i organize my family calendar by color coding!

4.  Block out personal time.

You know that calendar I told you about in number 3?  Yeah, go ahead and block out some time only for YOU.  Do it.  I know it’s scary, I know you would normally block times out for everyone else but yourself but block some out for you.  Taking some time for yourself makes you a better parent, neighbor, spouse, employee, friend, and soccer practice driver!

5.  Make lists.

There are list people and there are not.  I have been both at different times in my life and when I have lists I am more productive.  The joy of checking that little to-do off on my list is both gratifying and also motivating to keep me moving forward.  Lists also help me from forgetting everything I need to do because I am 100% the person who walks into a room and has already forgotten why I was in there.

  1. Thanks for the cool giveaway!
    I’ve really started to incorporate so many of your time saving tips in my world. My favorite right now is to just say no. As much as I want to do things I just can’t.
