Struggling to get it all done? Feeling overwhelmed with homemaking? These time management tips from some of the top homemaking bloggers will help!
When I recently I did a survey and asked about people’s top challenges when it comes to homemaking and overwhelming the top answer was finding time to get it all done.
The first thing I want to encourage you to remember is that while homemaking is important, having a perfect home is not important or even possible.
Jessica Turner talks a lot about this in the book The Fringe Hours and I really love this quote.
“Relationships are the currency that matters, not the conditions of our homes.”
We want our homes sanitary and hopefully comfortable for us and our family but we don’t need it to be perfectly decorated or picked up.
I do know from talking to some of you that even the necessary homemaking tasks can be overwhelming. We have so many things going on in our lives. Many of us work outside of the home, have kids, volunteer, have health concerns, the list goes on and on.
We all have the same 24 hours in a day so good time management is key. To help with this issue I reached out to some of my favorite bloggers and asked for there best time management tips for homemakers. They shared some great information that can really help reduce the overwhelm and help us get more done.
