These days, I’m pretty obsessed with finding little hacks to save my sanity…but I wasn’t always this way.
The truth is, I used to be just like you; feeling exhausted, overwhelmed, ashamed of my messy home, unhappy with my life and having NO idea what to do about it.
Because once I had my third child (17 months after I had my second), everything I thought I knew about running a home and keeping our house clean flew right out of the window.
Mom life (and postpartum depression) hit me so hard that I was leaving dirty dishes in the sink for a week, my older son was missing the bus, I had expired food in my pantry and crayon marks on my walls.
On top of that, we were basically living on pizza, McDonald’s, and Chinese takeout which was killing our one-income budget.
It felt like I was drowning every day; like I was barely keeping my head above water, and I was desperate to take back control.
I got started by researching better ways to manage #ALLTHETHINGS, and then shifted my focus on just the things that actually matter. From there, I created simple systems which saved me a TON of time and stress.
Now we’re saving money, I’m getting food on the table from my kitchen (instead of the drive-thru) almost every night, and keeping our house clean even with four little boys running around!
So if I can do it, you can too!
