Back to school is the perfect time for both stay-at-home moms and working moms to make positive changes to their homes, families and personal lives. It is a great time for women to focus on getting organized and healthy. Sweet Peas & Stilettos, http://www.SweetPeasandStilettos.com, offers these 10 tips for busy moms everywhere.
Tip #1 - Save time and get your food delivered. Women who are working and raising children know it is almost impossible to go to the grocery store. Order fresh organic vegetables and everyday basics online and have them shipped right to your doorstep. For the ultimate convenience, order delicious and healthy meals to be delivered to your home.
Tip #2 - Create an eco-friendly environment for your family. Think about hiring a green consultant to come to your home to provide insights on how to improve your family's carbon footprint. Don't forget to stock up on the best natural and eco-friendly cleaning products to ensure a healthy home.
Tip #3 - Make certain your children and family are safe. Check out the online tools that enable you to identify if there are registered offenders living in your neighborhood. Make sure your children's toys are not on any product recall lists. If you have older children, learn more about Internet safety.
Tip #4 - Get the support you need to assist you with caregiving for your aging parents. Many modern moms are taking care of their parents in addition to raising their children. The 'sandwich' generation is getting squeezed emotionally as they extend themselves in every direction. Explore the great caregiving resources available online.
Tip #5 - Remember to take care of yourself. It is easy to focus all of your energy on your family and career and forget to make sure you are happy and healthy too. When you are buying new backpacks for your kids, pick up a designer handbag or colorful, reusable tote for yourself, or splurge on a great pair of shoes for fall. To help you reduce stress and get into shape, order a few exercise DVDs and start a new fitness routine before the holidays.
Tip #6 - Take charge of your career. Put your career in overdrive by attending a top-notch executive MBA programs geared towards women. If you are looking for a new job, or are re-entering the workplace, jumpstart your networking efforts with some new personalized calling cards.
Tip #7 - Go natural and green with everything for your baby. Make sure you buy organic, natural baby clothes, organic baby food, and eco-friendly bath products. There are also a number of environmentally friendly choices when it comes to diapers. Check out the latest biodegradable diapers, chlorine free diapers, and cloth diaper services.
Tip #8 - Organize your favorite family photos. Before your summer vacation is a distant memory, make sure to organize your family photographs and videos. There are many fun and innovative products you can personalize with your own digital photos. Get a jumpstart on your holiday shopping and order custom photo books, photo jewelry, yoga mats, purses and more with images of your family and friends.
Tip #9 - Get your life, family and home organized. Buy a day planner created just for families and moms, or sign up for one of the online family organization tools. Hire a personal assistant or professional organizer to help you organize your home and closets so your house will be clean and ready for the holidays.
Tip #10 - Make time for you and your family to give back to your community. Think about donating your breast milk, funding a micro loan, donating clothing, books and toys to a local homeless shelter, or volunteering at a local arts organization. Show your children how they can begin to help others who are less fortunate.
