Tips for Being a More Organized Mom

Happy Thursday!

Being a mom and a wife is no easy task. I wanted to share with you guys a couple of helpful tips for becoming a better youJ.

  1. Plan events ahead of time; use Pinterest as your friend to create vision boards for upcoming events. If you celebrate holidays/birthdays it is never too early to start shopping and/or planning. I.e. if you know Christmas is going to be over your house this year. Start planning. If you know you attend several kids’ parties over the year. Create a gift bin in your home or garage to store gifts, so you are not running around last minute. If you make homemade gifts, create a realistic list of what you need to make and get to it!
  2. Sit down and take a moment to prioritize what is going on in your life right now and create goals for yourself i.e. weekly, monthly, and/or yearly. Focus on completing what you have on this list before taking on additional responsibilities.
  3. Assign responsibilities to your family. Everyone should have a job. You might have everything written down on a piece of paper or decide to create a chalkboard out of an old frame. The more important part is doing what works for you and your family, also never be afraid to ask for help from friends and family. I know we all want to be supermoms.
  4. If you would like to reward your children for the chores your children complete, you could easily create your own method. For example, you could purchase play money from the dollar store and once your child completes their chores for the week they get paid, at the end of the month or every two weeks they are able to purchase items from the family store. This could mean purchasing a certificate to stay up late or get an extra serving of dessert at dinner time. Another option could be having a day of off chores. The great part about this is you could set the pay rate and also control how much each prize is worth and what the actual prize is.
  5. As moms, we do not always have the time, however, sometimes we just have to make the time. Take time out of your day to make sure everyone is okay and to see how their day went. Plan family game night once a week or once a month to have that devoted time for your family, date your husband. Once the children go to bed, pour a glass of wine for you and your spouse, sit and watch a movie or just look into each other’s eyes.

Do you have any tips for being a more organized mom?

  1. I am definitely learning to delegate tasks in my home as it makes me less stressful and resentful that I'm the only one doing all of the work.

  2. Great tips. I can definitely use some of these.

  3. I am quite disorganized but what I have realized lately is that the children are getting old enough to have chores which takes some of the work off of me. The thing is I feel bad asking them to do it. Why? I don't know.

    I am slowly starting to plan out my goals and I have gotten a calendar and I use the one in my phone to stay organized. These are some great tips that I will definitely implement once school starts again. For now its all lazy and hazy. We are going with the flow!
