Balancing life as a busy at-home mom is an interesting juggling act. Between managing a household, planning meals, getting the kids to where they need to be, and being a wife, there’s not a lot of time left over. Add in working from home, and possibly even homeschooling, you’ve probably got more on your plate than time to do it all in. I know I do.
In this week’s podcast episode, I had a fun chat with Jennifer Tankersley, a busy work at home mom to three kids, ages 5, 7, and 9, on how we can be better organized as busy at-home moms.
Jennifer is not only a busy mom and wife, but she is also running an online business from home.
Jennifer’s website, ListPlanIt.com, shares planning and organizational tips for professional organizers and moms a like, and she has over 500 lists and worksheets for her members to use to be better organized in all areas of their lives.
In our interview, Jennifer and I talked about:
- How she turned her natural talents as a planner into an online business
- Ideas on how to plan your time and manage multiple schedules and priorities
- How you can to save time and energy with menu planning and shopping lists
- An idea for budgetting on a 26 week schedule
- Overcoming the guilt and anxiety of not having a perfectly “clean” house
- Goal setting and defining success as an work-at-home mom
- Ideas on how to manage your plans and lists, and keep it all organized
Jennifer gave us a great glimpse into how she manages life as a busy work-at-home mom with three kids in school, and I shared a few tips on how I manage life, business, and the household as a work-at-home, homeschooling mom. I hope that you enjoy meeting Jennifer and learning from her as much as I did chatting with her.
