“Busy isn’t a lifestyle, it’s a choice.” The Minimalists


Do you ever find yourself repeating the same thing over and over when someone asks how you’re doing? “It’s been busy.” “We’ve just been busy.” “It’s been a busy few weeks.”

It’s become a badge of honor to be busy and still act like we’ve got it altogether. I want to give you permission to choose a different way. To trade busy for intentional. Take things off your plate and organize the things that remain. 

This week on The Simple Home Podcast I talk to Laura from The Mama System to help us do just that. As a mother of 10, she’s had to systematize her daily routines and set her priorities. She teaches us how to create the right systems and routines that fit our lifestyles and our families right now.

You’re going to love her life hacks for moms that will get you on the road to feeling less busy!

  • The Bucket System– I use and love this says a way to keep my kids and myself responsible for what we need and want to get done each day. This system keeps me from reminding and nagging my kids all day long which helps build our relationship and fosters independence.
