I am jumping in with 100’s of other bloggers to join The Nester in her challenge to write the entire 31 days of October on one topic.
This post is my landing page with the links to all 31 posts listed in order as they are released at the bottom, making it simple for everyone to follow along.
Each day of October I will be sharing a time saving tip that I have found to work for me in my quest to be a successful homeschooling work at home mom.
Each post will be less than 250 words, because chances are if you are interested in a time saving series you don’t have a lot of time to spend reading.
I have been a work at home mom for over 16 years. I have been a homeschooling work at home mom for 11 years.
In those years, I have held many jobs, including daycare, reselling on Ebay, renovating homes, landlording and now blogging.
I engage in a lot of money saving yet time consuming tasks to stretch my families earnings, such as cooking from scratch, making homemade cleaners and shopping frugally.
Plus I enjoy spending time training for marathons.
My days are not perfectly managed. I still get stressed. Things still get left undone.Yet most days I feel like I live my life in balance thanks in part to the time saving tips I have picked up through the years.
