Everyday Organizing for Busy Moms {Time Pockets}

Happy March!  I do realize I'm over a week late on this one, but still happy to be celebrating with this month's themed calendar photo. 

March completely snuck up on me. I I feel like I need more hours in my day and more days in my week. I always feel like there isn't enough time to get the never ending to-do list tackled. 

I'm the kind of person that likes to start something, see it through, and knock it out in one sitting. One day when my kids are grown and I have the luxury of time I will be able to get back to that. For now though, we are busy. We're on the go. We're home for 15 minutes before leaving again. We're constantly dashing from one activity to the next.  It's because of this that I've realized that making use of time pockets is the way to go! 

What are time pockets? You know those few minutes here and there when you are waiting for something or someone else. Most likely it is when you are waiting on your kids. Waiting for your kids to put on their shoes and get out the door, waiting in the carpool line, waiting for practices to end...all those minutes here and there add up and if you can make use of those little time pockets you can really start to be more productive.  

I'm totally guilty of wasting that time by scrolling social media and believe me, some days that is the mental break I need. However, if I am really good I can use those 5 minutes here and there to get some stuff done.  I can wipe down the kitchen counters and load the dishwasher. I can sweep or start a load of laundry. I can draft and send the emails I need to. I can prep dinner. I can add a few things to my Amazon cart for upcoming gifts or projects.  I can make a phone call to schedule an appointment. The possibilities are endless. 

If you think about it and really get busy when you have a couple of minutes here and there you can actually get a lot done!  You just have to be ok with being interrupted, not finishing the task completely at one time, and having to press pause and pick it up later.
