Spend a little time planning now to save big time later! I have always planned in advance and been an organized person, but now it is extremely important to keep me and my family running smoothly, and keep my sanity! There is always so much going on, so many parts to life, work and schedules, people and relationships, it can be hard to juggle everything. Thinking and planning ahead, reflecting and recording afterwards can remove stress in your life.
I am a mom of 2 young children living in Wisconsin and also work full time in school administration. My husband and I led busy lives, so with the kids and my career I now more than ever need to plan with purpose and be organized. I can’t help but think about the next event in my life, the next birthday party, or holiday and getting the appropriate gift, card, or food item I am going to prepare. I am competitive by nature having played collegiate basketball, so I also plan and organize to save money and get the most for my money. It is a game and a thrill for me to find the best deal I can. I can be a little nuts at times:)
Through the years and after many experiences I have created systems and tools that help me plan in advance and save money so I thought why not share them. I too hope to learn some new tips and techniques from others that can help my busy life. I by no means am an expert planner, but hope that through this blog together we can save time, money, energy and become more effective and efficient.
My time at home with my family is precious, so by planning and being organized I can spend more time with them. I hope I can help you spend less time on the necessities in life and more time living your life. I am and always will be a Planning Mom. Welcome!
