Listen to the Podcast – 3 Home Management Tips for Homeschool Moms
Parenting Your Highly Sensitive Children
Managing your home includes managing the emotions of those inside your four walls. And parenting highly sensitive children can be challenging. Meaghan Jackson is a gentle parenting coach and we had her as a guest on episode 104. She had lots of good ideas to share!
But I just brought back one tip that I thought would be helpful for today’s episode. Check it out in episode 142 above.
Prepare Your Pantry for Emergencies
Is Your Family Prepared for Emergencies? Karen Morris, author of A Year Without the Grocery Store, has so much life experience and wisdom to share about meal planning and pantry prepping. She’s a homeschool mom too, so she explains how to do it on a tight budget. Karen joined us on episode 106, which you’ll definitely want to listen to if you missed it. But, for this episode, I pulled out her one genius tip for stocking up on year’s worth of food storage for only a little more than $150 per person!
Declutter Your Home with This One Simple Tip
Most of the decluttering process is a mindset game! We can start the process, then get sidetracked with emotions and trips down memory lane. It’s super hard to figure out what to save and what to toss. Will you regret getting rid of that item? What if you need it again? If you’ve ever wondered if there’s a way out of this mind game, then you’ll want to listen to episode 119, which is short and sweet (about 10 minutes long) and I give you my #1 decluttering tip after more than two decades of marriage, five kids, and many many moves (including international!).
