FABulites, For those of you who don't know I'm a Mom 0f 3, Wife to 1, Full Time Employee, Business Owning Fitness Loving Shopaholic who's always on the look out for great deals. Believe it or not that's just the short version of my life! One of the main questions I'm asked is "How I manage to do it all"? While I'm not completely able to answer that question I can tell you some of my favorite Life Hack's which makes it all easier. Shall we begin?
Cook Enough for 2 Days- One of my favorite most valuable hacks is to make sure I cook enough food for 2 days on the days that I cook. Like clockwork I cook full meals on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursday's and make sure what I cook on those days is enough for us to have the same meal for dinner the following day. Mondays are normally pretty hectic because after having the weekends off it's your first day back at Work and School and dealing with that alone is a job within itself. Having leftovers on Monday gives me more times to do the things I need to do without having to worry about dinner for the day. Luv it!
Make early morning and late nights your best friend- There is always something to be done at home. In order not to lose yourself in all the madness I decided to take full advantage of late nights and early mornings. I get up an hour before anyone else in up in the mornings to work out. It's quiet, peaceful and my opportunity to spend an hour before the madness focusing on myself. After the kids are in bed at night I take the time to focus on my blog and building the Frugal Flirty N Fab brand. Again uninterrupted me time to accomplish what I need to get done. I try to make it a rule to be in bed by midnight and up by 6 am and so far this is one of my favorite life hacks. Maybe this exact plan would not work for you but it's just about finding the times that do.
Make time for Family Meetings-I know its sounds like a lot but with a family of five and everyone having their own agenda it gets pretty easy to get caught up in your own personal doings. Have a brief family meeting and discuss what everyone has coming up for the week. This will help you stay on top of things and also allows you to lend support to your family when they need it the most. Whether it's a sporting event, big test, family trip, or anything else, schedule it in and make sure the family is aware of what's coming up in the week ahead.
