As a SAHM what are the little things you do everyday to make life a little bit easier on yourself?

I have really been catching on to flyLady and I am loving it, lol. I love waking up to the clean sink and the fresh dish towel, lol. Also setting the table for breakfast the night before is great.

I have also been planning little fun things for ME to do. I have been planning little crafts, little spa moments, or mini shopping trips, just for me. I look over my plans for the next day every night, and if after looking at it I am not REALLY looking forward to it, (and trust me, with 5 kids and tons of work, somedays I dread getting out of bed, even though I always love seeing their smiles in the morning) I plan something fun. It is really working for me!

  • Lol, I know what you mean, trust me. Some days I wanted to just pull the covers over my head. It took me a while to really get the whole flylady thing too. But I seriously love waking up to a clean kitchen. I have been setting the table for breakfast the night before too. It really helps to wake up and know that there isn't tons of work waiting for you.

  • I do the samething with my kitchen! I know if it's not clean before bed, and I have to do it in the morning I'm going to have a bad day.

  • I've always been really bad about leaving the dishes for the morning. I'm trying to work on that though. Sounds like you're doing a really good job for yourself! Way to go!

    I use a sticky note everyday to tell me what I have to get done that day. I post it up on the kitchen cabinet where I can see it.
