8 Actionable Time Management Tips for Work-at-Home Moms — 8 Comments

  1. So many great tips in here! Wow!

    I especially like the part about “quit trying to do it all” as there are only so many hours in the day. It’s a hard lesson to learn, especially as a work from home Mom, but so important to do.

    Planning is also so important, plan it, sit down and laser focus during the time you have.

    Great article:)

  2. What an excellent article.
    Luckily for me, my husband doesn’t ask “what did you do all day”. He is out of town most of the time.
    My 2 girls are in school all day and we don’t have any friends or family that could help to take the girls for me to get some work done, as we just relocated to a different state.
    Turning off notifications would work for sure. They can definitely be a distraction.
    As a stay at home mom, I do feel like I should do everything since my husband is constantly out of town for work, however, I think I will take your advice and start assigning my 2 girls with some chores that will help me out. After all, I am the one who takes them to their practices and meetings, and so forth. I will talk to them and honestly I think they MIGHT be willing to pitch in. If not, then I guess this momma will just have to lay the law down, nicely of course.

    • Thanks for reading the article. I’m glad you found it useful. The kids don’t seem to mind helping, as long as I keep it simple and offer some options. Hope you find the same. And it’s amazing how a little bit of help goes a long way!

  3. I really identify with not being able to let go of control and was laughing out loud while reading the end of this article. 🙂 I hope somebody has some ideas about how to accomplish this.

    I love your master to-do list idea. I have always broken down my tasks into mini tasks so that I could tick more tasks off my list – it makes me feel like I am actually getting things done.

    I loved this article and hope to be able to implement more of your ideas, particularly the planning ones.

    • I’m so glad you liked the article and that it made you laugh out loud 🙂

      Yes, somebody, ideas please lol! Still struggling with that one, but I’m going to give a chore chart another try this summer to hopefully spread around the workload. Baby steps…
