She has recommended this book to so many people and they all thank her after they try it. The short lessons are so easy to follow (they tell you exactly what to say and do). I know it sounds like an infomercial but it is the truth….It really WORKS!

Have you struggled getting your kids out the door in the morning or to bed at night? I try to tell my kids they only have so much time to get ready in the morning and they have a LOT to do first! They struggle gaging how fast time passes, especially the little ones. I hear myself saying the bus is coming in 10 minutes!..in 5 minutes!…in 1 minute! But it doesn’t seem to work. ENTER this VISUAL timer. With this the kids can SEE time passing and know that when the red is gone, it is time to go. Hoping it helps with bedtime as well. :)

Digital Homemaking Binder on EverNote


Anything that helps me keep myself and my family efficient and organized is a good thing in my book. If you have been wanting to go electronic for organizing, EverNote is a program which allows you to take every element of your life and organize it into electronic “folders”. We’re talking photos, to do lists, documents, recipes, emails, audio, everything. Then you can sync all these folders to your Ipad, smart phone, and computer.

Can you say ULTIMATE organizing tool? We found this incredible little book that introduces how to effectively use it to organize your life as mom. You could create your own personalized digital HOMEMAKING BINDER! A more organized mom means a happy mom.
And we’re all about happy moms.

Not ready to go digital? No problem. Try this instead…

Mom’s planner


Several of our readers suggested a planner kept them sane during the craziness of school activities and projects. This Mom’s Ultimate Family Organizer is a favorite as it enables you to not only organize your calendar, but everything else from meal plans to kids projects. It’s a bigger size (think..binder) with pockets, which means you can fit all your papers in it as well!

Have fun SHOPPING!!!
