5 printables that have saved my sanity

My journey to motherhood began 15 years ago after I was blessed with my beautiful twins (a boy and a girl) and later my third, another girl. As I have shared with you recently, as incredible as becoming a Mother was I quickly found myself in a place of complete overwhelm and defeat. My house was getting the better of me. My clean washing was taking over my lounge room, the dishes just never seemed to disappear and the rest of the house resembled a bombsite.  I’d lost control.

But it was during this time of desperation that I decided to take that control back. I created and trialled routines, checklists and charts until I was left with a system that worked for me. I came up with life hacks that saved not only my time but also my sanity.  I got my life back. I had control again! And I realised that I could, in fact, do it all and keep my sanity!

I had to share my tactics with other Mothers! I knew we were all in the same position, drowning in those horrible feelings of overwhelm and failure. Along with this blog which I totally adore writing and sharing with you, I decided to share these fabulous charts, checklists and planner that I have trialled and tested in my own home! As Mums, we are the human diaries for our entire family, so finding room in our brain to remember tasks like cleaning the fan is almost impossible.

So I’ve done all of the hard work for you! Sharing what I have used and created to help take the thinking out of keeping your life organised. Notice as your children mature before your eyes as they take on their new responsibilities and follow my ever so popular kids’ routine charts, you’ll be able to get them out the door without nagging!!

THE ORGANISED HOUSEWIFE ONLINE SHOP

I thought I’d share this post with you today as I learnt after a recent survey I ran that many of you aren’t aware that I have an online shop along with the blog.  Most of the products are downloadable, which means you can purchase them now and use them in five minutes. I told you I’m efficient!!  I am looking at expanding it and introducing more physical products soon, which is very exciting!!
