5 Practices That Help Me Save Money as a Homemaker

There are advantages to working from home, one of which is that I don't have to commute to work every day or sit through rush hour traffic just to get to my office. Since my husband and I both work from home, we're able to save on certain expenses. However, you can never save too much, right? So here's how I save, in my own little way, as a mom, a wife and a homemaker.

How to Simplify Your To-Do List

As you might know by now (for those who regularly read this blog), I like organizing. These days, I still find myself organizing round the clock, especially since we've only been in this new apartment for less than a month. While the house is neat and tidy, there are still things in the middle room (my husband's intermittent office) that need to be stored and kept out of sight. I'll get to them, eventually.

HR for the Work-at-Home Mom

Just short of three months into the work-at-home mom role, and I am already getting the hang of it.

One of the things I appreciated in my office-based work in the past was the organization aspect of the HR department. It helped keep the quality of my work in check, and helped me to stay on…

Staying Fab as a Stay-at-Home/Work-at-Home Mom

I make no claims about being a fabulous mommy. I am new to the job, and I am loving it, but it is damn hard to fill the mommy shoes!  Working from home, although much more flexible than an office job, has proven to be quite the challenge. Sure, I am getting the hang of it, and loving the fact that I can spend most of my day with my husband and son. The challenge I refer to is in terms of maintaining some "flair" in the day-to-day; after all, we work-at-home moms are superwomen, right? So we…

I will say it again for the nth time: I love being a work-at-home mom. It's not for everyone, I'll admit, but it's working for me so far.

How Not to Get Bored as a Stay-at-Home/Work-at-Home Mom

Being a work-at-home mom, I find myself often busier than I was in my former office job! The difference is that I'm less stressed, more involved with my family, and I prefer my current lifestyle. In fact, I enjoy the busyness of the role. Still, there are some days when the routine gets to me. During those times, I need a diversion.



Have any of you felt the same? In case you have, I've listed down some "boredom busters" that have helped me get through the rut.
