Mom blog interviews and organizing your busy family

I am not sure where to start when describing how incredibly busy I will be this week.

I am starting a series of mom interviews to feature bloggers and get some of their great tips for organizing and time management for their families this week. All of which will be posted here at Organized Families.

If you are interested in being interviewed please drop me a note through the contact form.

I also have a client blog to complete, an aupair training manual to write for Rod’s new aupair (my boyfriend for those of you who are new to my crazy life blog), another client who needs help getting started on twitter to promote their blog, a fence to finish staining, invoicing, and you know the daily life of being a single mom with three children !

Of course I also have my ongoing To Do list to work through and a library book that I really WANT to read.  Reading is a guilty pleasure for this busy mom. One I rarely dip into, for this very reason.  I of course had to start a trilogy which could result in my nose in a book for a week straight ;)

Speaking of library books my tip for the day: Get a library bag. I keep mine next to the door on a hook and the children are told to KEEP their books in the bag not on their book shelf or under their book shelf, bed, or laundry hamper (all places they tend to disappear to). It keeps them handy to grab when I get time to stop by the library.

I love the library bag idea. I have a basket in the living room that the library books are kept in while being read in the home:)

I look forward to learning more great tips:)

It sounds like you have a good amount of work, which is good… I so understand being busy. I haven’t taken out a book at the library in so long because my eyes are bigger than my time. :) I have a lot of books around here that I want to read so I’ve been trying to catch up on my own personal library reading. But isn’t reading as a guilty pleasure so much fun? I put a book or magazine in my bag so when I’m waiting anywhere I have something I want to read.

Have a good week.

Wow, you put me to shame – your life is incredibly busy, but you manage to keep it organized and under control. Thanks for your tip about keeping a library bag by the door. Oh, how I wished I’d thought of that when my kids were small…

Wow! And I thought I was busy! Great tip about the library bag. I have one, but books tend to migrate anyway.

I’m following you from the MBC Under 100 Club. I look forward to reading more!
