Between after school activities, helping with homework, and staying on top of your work responsibilities, most moms could use a few extra minutes in their day. Here are 5 tried and true ways to save some time in your busy life as a mom!
Any mom will tell you that saving a trip to the store is a mom’s best friend. These days you can order everything from diapers to entire grocery lists, and they will arrive in giant boxes at your door. It’s as if a tiny, beautiful fairy just placed it there for you, and just charged your credit card.
Washable crayons, markers, and paints.
If you just enjoy spending hours upon hours scrubbing tiny Picasso scribblings from the wall, then you can keep the regular art supplies, but if you would rather clean any impromptu wall art sessions with plain soap and water on a wash cloth, you’ll want to switch to the washable kind. You may end up paying a little extra for them, but you’ll save a ton of headache later on.
Put a tablecloth under the baby’s high chair.
So, I know I said that buying essentials online is a mom’s best friend, that does come in second if that mom has a small child who leaves more of their food on the floor than actually ends up in their mouth. A vinyl tablecloth under the high chair is a great way to make post-dinner cleanups a breeze.
Organize as you go.
For things that you rarely need like shot records, class schedules, and birth certificates, you’ll want to set up a filing cabinet with files on each member of your family. Even though you don’t need these items often, you will be thankful that you were prepared when the time does come. A little preemptive organization is always a good idea.
Hire a Houston cleaning service.
Hiring a maid service isn’t just for the rich and famous. Regular families, even some of your neighbors, have hired cleaning services for one time and recurring cleans. Imagine coming home to a completely spotless house, (that you didn’t have to clean.) Talk about the ultimate mom time saver!
