10 Tricks, Tips, and Timesavers for the Busy Working Mom

By Casi Densmore-Koon |

I’m 34 weeks pregnant. I have 4 Littles under 9, 2 of them under 2, and soon – 3 under 21 months. Call me crazy! Not only do I have 4 kids and a husband but I have a darling little successful (well, not so little) biz I run that is constantly growing, cupcakeMAG and cupcakeMAG Littles. Not to mention writing daily for the amazing Babble and contributing to The Party Dress, Spearmint Baby and Spearmint Decor.

If there is one question I get all the time it is: How do you do it? Well, let me tell you – some days, I am not so sure myself! I am not a super-mom like so many of my lovely friends, family and readers think. While I would love to think of myself as super-mom, I can promise, I am far from it. However I will say, I am one of those do-it-all-multi-tasking gals. With that said, I thought I would round-up a few of my tips and tricks that get me through each and everyday but also keep me organzied on a daily basis.

After the jump, browse a few things I do to manage it all!

10 Ways To Stay Organized

Get It Together The Night Before

With 2 Littles in school, forget getting things ready in the am. Especially because it's not like the other 2 Littles stay asleep. This is how it is my house. We are all up at the crack of dawn! Which is why I pack all lunches, get everything in backpacks, lay out outfits, sometimes even 2 just in case someone changes there mind. This happens often with girls. So, back-up helps. When you go to bed at night, you won't have to worry about looking for anything in the morning. And believe me, it's less stress for everyone and you can actually enjoy breakfast and who knows, maybe hit snooze once and enjoy an extra cup of coffee.
