The Organized Mom

Regular price $4.99

"How many times, at the end of the day, have you wondered where all the time went? How many times have you wished you could just have one extra hour to yourself, or to finish a project, or to spend playing with your children? What if I told you that you just might be able to find that extra hour? According to the National Association of Professional Organizers, women spend an average of 55 minutes a day looking for stuff.  55 minutes! That is time that is much, much better spent elsewhere. To reclaim that extra hour, among other just as worthy reasons, you need to get yourself organized. This book is full of tips that can help you do that, even if your hands are full with kids, a job, a spouse, and a plethora of other commitments. These are real-world tips, from my own experience as a busy mother.  I’ve been a stay-at-home-mom, a mom with a full-time job, a single mom, and a mom with an at-home business. At one point, I was teaching an early-morning, before-school high school class, working part-time, doing a graduate program double speed—and being a mom. Organization wasn’t a hobby; it was a necessity. I’ve also culled tips from the experts and from my organized friends. There is not anything revolutionary here. There are tips, steps, systems, and ideas to make your life easier. Getting organized is a series of replacing bad habits with good habits, along with getting rid of clutter and keeping it away. Put all of it together, and I whole-heartedly believe you can accomplish more in a day than you ever dreamed possible."  —from the Introduction
