First of all, for sale a very Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there…most especially to my ever dearest mom of course!
The other day I mentioned how women wear so many hats but it's amazing how it seems that God has given us an innate ability to do such. It seems that multi-tasking is an ability built into a woman's core. We must admit though that sometimes it can get overwhelming, when things tend to be chaotic and we don't know which one to start doing first, especially when we have so many tasks in hand. A lot of times though this can be easily solved in simple ways. I'm by no means an expert in "simplifying" my life, much more someone else's life but I'd like to share with you some practical tips that I know work well.
1. Use a Handbag Organizer
2. Utilize a Planner
I find that whenever I write a To-Do List for the day, my mind is clearer and I have a sense of direction for the given day. It's also easier to see which ones are priorities first, that way things that are more important get done versus the less important ones and I don't just run around like a chicken without a head! By using a pretty daily planner, it's also much more inspiring! I guess it's the femininity in us that we tend to be more productive and inspired when we see pretty little things. I got this daily planner from Flutterbytes from Amazon.com for less than $20! I like it because it has a page per day and got some plenty of room to write on. Now if you're already a writer of To-Do Lists or you're a natural organized person, then you got it girl!

3. Use Your Mobile Phone Apps
In case you don't know yet (but come on! *Wink*), there are apps for your iPhone or Android that are available to make your life simpler. Some, in fact, are already built in. For example, on iPhones, you can use the "Notes" app if you don't like writing on a planner or if you're on the go but you need to take note of something. There's also the "Reminder" app. If you're always glued to your phone, you might as well utilize it. The Calendar app is also a very helpful tool to keep your schedule organized. I personally like the Calendar app because it has alerts. Visit your iPhone or Android app store to find the app that will work for you. There are tons out there – both free and paid.
