Happy moms, happy homes

Dear budding neat freaks,

I am one of many busy moms who need to be organised to function at our optimum. Because May is 'mom's-day-month', I wanted to share with you some tips that I found recently. I truly hope they help.

Get a great planner to help organise your schedule. If you're a techno-junkie, try managing your time online with Google Calendar OR if you're a techno-phobe, go with a diary. Even a basic notebook with lots of room to jot down notes will help you mana...
