How to do manage to get everything done at home? I work from 7:30-5:30 (with only one 30 minute break) M-F. I pick up my son at 5:45, come home, cook dinner, work on his homework with him, get him ready for bed, and then I crash myself. I might manage to clean up the kitchen and do a load of laundry. If not, then I do it first thing in the morning. But the rest of the house is a complete disaster. I have tried flylady.net, but I just don't have the time or energy. I try to get as much done on the weekend as possible, but most of the time, I would rather be spending it with my son. Any tips that worked for you?Answer Question

when you find out let me know. the only thing that I do is through in a load at night and dry it in the morning. we eat off paper plates and disposable flatware. I clean as I cook. I just try to organize my time by not walking into or out of a room without having something in my hand. like....if I'm in the living room and going toward the bedroom I take a couple of toy. eventually it becomes second nature. but i still feel like I need more hours added to the day to complete everything. my son tries to help too. somedays he is very helpful

just thought of this, I haven't done this for a while (I need a new food saver) but it may help you. I had a food saver vacuum sealer. on the weekend I would make a bunch on dinners and make up the plates (chicken, peas, pasta) vacuum seal then and freeze them. when you come home all you have to do is vent the seal and pop it in the microwave. presto a home cooked meal in three to five mins.

LOL! I liked the way she slipped the advertisement in there for "flylady.net".
I think the whole post was geared towards an advertisement anyway!!
Of course, I had to check it out. It's really not anything I'd use to begin with. I have to laugh to think that someone would actually join a program on the internet to help them organize their routines and schedules for family time.

Anon. 10:15, the only reason that I mentioned flylady was because I have asked a similar question a few months ago, and I had 10 responses about flylady.net. No, my post was not geared towards an advertisement. I work 10 hours a day and I need some fresh ideas on how to get things done in as little time as possible. I didn't want another 10 responses about flylady, so that is why I mentioned it.
