4 Super Responsible Things SAHMs Should Do

SAHMs (Stay At Home Moms) - Anyone else feel like life is moving so quickly that it's hard to catch your breath? School, sports, playdates, errands, appointments, chores, and the like seem to fill each moment of our calendar. Sigh. 

The busyness of these days are of consequence. Lives are made from them. We should do our best to treasure our overfilled calendar because it means we have loved ones that rely on us. 

Still, while we are running from one thing to another, we have the nagging sensation that our "important" to-do list remains unfinished. You know what I'm talking about - the boring or confusing items that should be taken care of, but you don't even know where to start. 

In all your spare time (wink, wink), put these on your calendar. You will be grateful and a weight will be lifted from your shoulders. My suggestion is to tackle one per month. 

1. Will - name guardians so your children always stay in good hands. (excellent resource: Willing)

2. Money - create and use a budget. (we recommend: Mint or YNAB)

3. Organize - keep a basic system to keep it all straight. (try: Evernote or if you are not tech-savvy: Franklin Planner)

4. Insurance - protect your family no matter what life brings. (start here: Insurance Happens - that's us. Also visit Life Happens, a non-profit organization)

You got this. One thing at a time. 

P.S. - Shout out to GYST (Get Your S#%$ Together) for their excellent ideas and resources. Their organization helps others avoid the hardships they personally faced through planning and organization.
