Visit "The Modest Mom" Blog and enter to win Large Family Logistics: The Art and Science of Managing the Large Family. This is one of the best homemaking books I have read in a LONG time. Kim Brenneman breaks home making down into easy steps to help you manage any size home. Those that know me know I am a fairly organized person but I have found SO MUCH in this book this is helping me improve what I already do plus start some new stuff. For example, her chapter on "Office Day" has been such a blessing. I have so much office/paper work that needs attention but never seem to stay on top of it. While I have a laundry day and a cleaning day, I had never thought of arranging my schedule to have an office day each week. Yesterday was my first one and it was wonderful. I took the time to focus on what I needed to do each week, each month, and goals to complete when I can devote possibly two days to the office. Two days will only happen if Saturdays allow or we are having a homeschool break.
This is just a small example of how this book can benefit the lives of a busy mom--whether you have ten kids or one. I plan to do more detail posts explaining how I do things and how the book has helped me improve. For now, head over to "The Modest Mom" and enter her giveaway.
