It's not just about saving money...

As a Mom who home-schools her children, it is always important for me to find ways to save our family money.  We sacrifice so that I can be home with my babies!  It's not something we chose to do, it's a lifestyle that chose us!  While, it's extremely important to save money, it is equally important to budget my time.  One great way to do that is to plan out your days, weeks, and even months. 

Today I will be doing just that!  I am sort of a "Jack of All Trades" around here.  I manage our home while my husband works 12 hours every day, I take care of our finances, and I run this blog along with several others.  Plus, I have a home-based business that requires plenty of attention.  Here are my links in case you're interested:

LOVE TO LOSE WITH ME - I am an It Works! Independent Distributor

CREATIVELY ME - I am a custom image designer, web site designer, logo designer, Virtual Assistant, etc. (site is a work in progress!)

KGM PHOTOS - My daughter and I are starting a photography business (again, a work in progress!)

PURIFIED MINISTRIES - My husband and I own a ministry that is currently a HUGE work in progress, so I won't even show the link to the site! lol

As you can see, I clearly have plenty of things to keep me very busy!!  I absolutely love it though!  But, as you can imagine, TIME is something that I rarely have enough of.  Therefore, organization and planning (one of my greatest gifts from God) is the key to success!

Today, I am going to focus on planning out my day.  Which businesses to work on and for how long each day this week.  If it doesn't seem to flow smoothly, I will tweak it for next week.  Ironically, in this planning of my week I will need to plan for some "planning time"... lol  I will let you know how it goes! :)

  1. Keep us posted how your time-management goes! I swear, it seems the older we get the less we're able to do in a day. Wishing you the best of luck in getting it all sorted out.
