    I find that making out my menu for the month really helps me stay on track! I never have to worry what I will be doing for dinner and stressing over it:)

    To save time the kids pick out their school clothes the night before

    Before you run errands, gather your sales fliers, write out your shopping list, gather your coupons and rain checks, and plan out your shopping route. You’ll save both time and money this way!

    I try to plan what we are eating for the week and set a budget. It helps save time instead of trying to figure out what’s for dinner in a rush.

  14. Jackie January 13, 2012 Reply

    I try to do as much as I can for the morning the night before…get lunch boxes ready, set up the coffee machine, set the table for breakfast, etc. It makes the morning a lot easier.

  15. Julie Wood January 13, 2012 Reply

    I use a pocket size calendar to put on all my kids appointments, so this way I can follow all of the activities,
    and,I take it with me.

  16. Christina January 13, 2012 Reply

    For me… its keep to a schedule! My kids thrive more when they know what to expect next most days, so for us its best to have a schedule and keep to it! Helps everything run smoothly.

    Have the coffeemaker set up the night before so all you have to do is turn it on in the morning. Also laying out the clothes you want to wear the night before makes getting from the shower & dressed and out the door so much easier!

  21. Gena Durbin Carrico January 13, 2012 Reply

    I try to keep everything in it’s place. Like the diaper bag by the door and ready to go. If I have something to return to a store, I put it by the door also.

    Getting everything ready the night before — clothes laid out (including shoes, and for me, jewelry); backpacks packed; lunches made; jackets, hats, mittens, etc. all together; breakfast identified and set up ready to make the next morning. When I do this the night before, our mornings go super easy…..when I don’t, well, it’s not a pretty sight.

    Add the important items on Outlook calendar or a mobile/PDA calendar to keep track of your to do items and allocate the time you think it will take to do it

  38. Dee W January 15, 2012 Reply

    I keep a bag in the van with diapers, wipes, changes of clothes, snacks, bottles, formula, bottled water, coloring books, crayons, cars, and other toys. That way if we’re out longer than we need to be, or if I need to run out for a second, I don’t have to worry about packing up a bag. I can just grab the kids and go. We check the bag every 2 weeks, and restock as needed.Mommy24babies

      I really need to do this…DarcyZalewski

      • Dee W January 16, 2012 Reply

        It started by accident. Twice we went on a trip about an hour away and I’d forgotten the diapers! I had the diaper bag but no diapers, smh. So I just started leaving those and wipes in the car. Then any extra snacks that we had when we returned home were left, and then so on and so forth. I would really recommend it.Mommy24babies

  40. Lorrie (pinklady705) January 16, 2012 Reply

    I make sure to get things ready the night before on school days. We have dedicated areas for backpacks, library books, and lunch boxes so that everyone knows where they are and we don’t lose them or waste time looking for them. I make sure that homework and/or important papers are taken out of the backpack as soon as we arrive home.

    I have a basket for each of the kids on the stairs and the kids know whenever they pass it on their way to their bedroom them if there is something in theirs they have to take it to room

    Leave the stress behind. The house won’t catch fire if it doesn’t get cleaned, the kids won’t get fat from one night of MacDonald’s.

    well, I don’t think I have any tricks but I can say something. my son is a new walker now and curious about everything so , what I do is not to have decorations around the house. I don’t have to clean them, pick them up or check them every time so,that is one less stress on my listerickascr

    I always try to clean my dishes as soon as they are done being used. It keeps them from piling up and usually my kitchen is clean right after dinner!

    I put my son in the bathtub while I color my hair, pluck my eyebrows and do my mani/pedi. It keeps him in one place and gets him clean at the same time!

    Good money management is one of the ways I help save money for my family. I’m an accountant so I watch our spending like a HAWK so I know when we’re getting close to going over budget. Also, I’m a huge advocate of PAYING YOURSELF before anyone else. What does this mean? The weekly deposit to savings happens before any other bills are paid.brousehouse

    My tip is to remember that “SuperMom” does not exist! You aren’t going to always be able to do everything the way you’d like and everything is not always going to run as smoothly as you had hoped. Sometimes being “good enough” is PERFECT!Kitty32504
