  • Have you ever felt like someone just pressed the Fast-forward button on your day and before you know it its ten o'clock and time for bed, yet I feel like I accomplished nothing. I love to organize and with working Part Time outside of the home and FULL-TIME at home with my business, 2 children and my wonderful Husband, I really rely on a schedule and many time management tips to keep my sanity (ok, so some of you think I am already insane, I won’t argue with that) but at least I am organized. I found online scheduling software that i can sync with my husband, all of my employees across the country all on one calendar. It’s called CalendarCruncher.com, and I don’t know what I did before this online scheduler. This has worked for me to keep my chaos organized. What do you busy moms use or what other insights do you have?

  • Buy a package of clothespins at the grocery store and use them instead of twist ties on things such as bread, plastic bags etc. So much easier! I delight in ripping off the twist ties that come on things and replacing it with a clothespin. I even use them on things in the freezer.

  • Bringing my own lunch to work each day has been my lifesaver -- though, early on, I was sure it would just make things more stressful for me. (Another lunch to pack in the morning! No way!) But it's easy to throw leftovers, cut-up veggies and some low-cal dressing, tea bags (way better than the coffee at my office), and a small treat in a bag while I'm packing lunches and snacks for my kids. And I don't feel an urge to hit the junk-food-filled snack machines -- or even the chips-and-candy aisle at the supermarket -- at all, any more.

  • Masking tape is my current lifesaver: The little kids will play with it for ages, and if they stick it to the wall or the floor it comes off easily!

  • I love to save money whenever I can. I'm kind of like a shopaholic, but I'm a saveaholic. Don't get me wrong, I love to shop, but it's the saving part that gets me excited.
