We all get 24 hours in a day but it never seems like quite enough, does it? That’s why today’s guest, professional organizer and author Morgan Tyree, wants to help you take back your time with her proven time-management system. Morgan's recently released the book Take Back Your Time. On top her professional organizing business Morganize with Me and writing books, Morgan is a mom-of-3 who has home schooled, lived abroad, AND teaches fitness classes. Sounds like an expert on time management to me, right? And we sip delicious Caipirinhas inspired by Morgan's three years abroad in Portugal.
Even the most organized mama can use a few tips to get the family back into the swing of things when it comes to the school year. Today, I'm addressing the biggest concerns raised when it comes to back-to-school from the mamas in my Cocktails and Containers Facebook Group. We'll discuss trying to find a balance while doing all the things, how to schedule your family, why you need a morning routine, and how to keep up with all the papers.
For more back-to-school tips, don't miss my previous episodes about meal planning, creating a morning routine, organizing kid's papers, and helping your older children plan for after high school.
School is starting soon...I want to set you and your family up for success.
I've created a super simple "Back-to-School Checklist" to make sure you've taken care of everything leftover from last year. AND set up good systems to help you stay on top of things this year.
Don't worry, the checklist won't take up all your remaining summer. Just a few things dealing with paper, clothes, and schedule to set you up for success.

I recently join Natalie Hailey on the UK based "One Hot Thing" podcast to discuss how I organize and simplify my content creation.
As a one-woman-show, I have to have a system in place so I don't lose my mind when it comes to all the different platforms. Natalie and I discuss how I figure out what to post, where to post it, and when to post it with my simple content calendar. And we throw a few other organizing tips in there too!

Looking for a way to spend more intentional family time? What about self-care? I created the Life Balance Bucket List because I felt out of whack when it came to family time and self-care. Each month, every member of the family chooses an activity and we put it on the list. My kids keep me accountable (trust me!) and we have at least 4 quality family outings each month.
