This post will help you manage your time, in order to be more productive and succeed at your job. There’s also a printable that will help you schedule your day.

Here are the steps to budget your time and still be productive.

1.Set Goals

Write down all of your goals for the day. Be realistic, don’t add too many things that you’ll know you won’t be able to achieve. That will only make you feel stressed and frustrated.

How to Work from Home and be Productive

I recently started this blog and soon realized this is what I want to do for a living. I’ve never been this happy, I finally found “my purpose”. I take this blog as serious as a job, so I work really hard on it, I’m sure this will be the way that will lead me to success.

If you are a blogger or work from home and want some inspiration to be productive, then this is the post for you. There’s also a weekly planner printable to help you organize your days, to get it, click here.

1.Wake Up Early

I like waking up early, and take my time getting ready, that way I’m not in a rush meaning I’ll be really calm and relaxed once I start working. It’s also a habit that makes me feel more productive because I have more time available to do everything I set myself to do that day.

2.Do some sort of Activity

I usually stretch and do a little bit of yoga and, sometimes I even do a small workout. This makes me feel very alert and ready to tackle my day. Keep in mind, running after your children to get them ready counts as a workout haha.

3.Set Goals for the Day

This step will make you feel pressured (in a positive way) to accomplish everything you set yourself to achieve for the day. Make a realistic list, or you’ll be frustrated. I like to see it in a weekly planner, like that it’s easier for me to plan according to what I did the previous day. Also, at the end of the week, you will feel like you were super productive, that will boost your confidence, and it will make you improve on your work every day.

4.Plan Out your Meal

At the end of every day, I like to make a small list with ideas for meals for the following day. This saves me a lot of time meaning I get to get more things done.

5.Have Fun

Now that you spend your day being extremely productive, you deserve to have fun and relax. Be with your family and friends, watch a few episodes of your favourite series, just enjoy your time. Don’t forget to be proud of your achievements, you might not have the results right away, but you will have them!

How to become an Organised Person

Among my friends and family, I’m known by “The List girl”! It’s funny, I’ve always been like this, I remember making lists for my mum to give to Santa haha! Being organised is really in my personality. I decided to share a few tips that will help you to become an organised person.

1.Start by Organising your Home

Having your home organised will help you to get in the spirit! Organise your bedroom and kitchen and the spaces you spend more time in.

2.Organise your Mind

Write in a journal, write down your emotions and thoughts. Sometimes we need to de-clutter our minds in order to have a more organised life! This is a great habit for your mental health too!

3.Start making Small Lists

Have two or three goals for the day and write them down. Make sure to tick them out as you achieve them.

4.Start Planning your Week

Write down at least one goal to achieve per day, it will motivate you, and it will get you in the habit of planning out everything.

5.Make this a Habit

Make all the steps above a habit.

It takes 21 days to make or break a habit. Give yourself time to get in the spirit and have fun doing it.

1.Budget and Plan

First of all, you need to be aware of how much you can spend on your household expenses! Also, don’t forget to plan what you need to buy. Staying organised will help you save money.

2. Buy reusable cleaning cloths
This will save you a lot of money. You’ll just have to put them in the washer once you’re done using them and it’s beneficial for the environment!

3. Figure out when it’s cheaper to do your laundry
Depending on the time of the day that you’re doing your laundry, you’ll be able to save energy and money. Just check your contract.

4. Buy your supplies only on sale
Get your supplies when they’re on sale, there are amazing deals, and it will make you save so much money!

5. Have a little stack at home
This tip goes along with the previous one. When they’re on sale, instead of getting just one, get a couple and have a little stack of them. You’ll pay less for all of the products, and you won’t have to worry about it every month. 

6. Make some supplies yourself
If you have the time, then you should definitely give this one a go! There are so many recipes online. They’re quite easy to make, and I love making them, especially all-purpose sprays. This will save you a lot of money, and it’s really good for your health and the environment.

The 3 steps before Starting your own Business

Starting your own business is such an exciting moment. On this post, I’ll be sharing with you the 3 things you need to do before starting your own business.

1.Budget

Create a budget to figure out how much you’ll be spending to start your business. The budget should include the investments you’ll have to make on products for your business, the place you’ll be selling your products (website, physical store, etc), other expenses you’ll have, and a certain amount that you will need to survive while your business doesn’t have profit.

2. Investing

Most people want to start a business without making investments, but that’s not how things work. Remember, you’re investing in your future, so it’s a good investment.

3. Knowledge

Before actually starting your business, gather all the knowledge you will need. Learn all about marketing strategies, money management, etc.

Be positive, and know that everything will work out! I wish you the best of luck with your new journey!

How to Get Good Grades

On today’s post, I’ll be sharing with you my main tips on how to get good grades. This post can help students, mothers whose kids are in school or adults that are thinking about furthering their education.

Here’s how you can get good grades.

1.Take Notes

When you’re in class, and your professor is explaining the matter, take as many notes as you can. This will help you retain more of what you heard in class, and it will help you study once you’re home.

2. Ask Questions

Don’t be afraid to ask for a better explanation about the topics you’re not fully understanding, your professor won’t mind, and it will help you get better grades.

3. Study Every Single Day

You need to keep your memory fresh and studying every day will help you understand everything better and not forget the little details. You’ll also feel more comfortable when it comes to exams or essays.

4. Plan Everything

Be on top of the exam days and make sure to write down what you need to study. This will help you to be more organised and more productive. Check these Planners that I’ve made, they were a life saver for me! Your grades will definitely improve with them.

Save Money on Grocery Shopping

Grocery shopping is something we all have to do, some people love others hate it but one thing everyone has in common is not wanting to spend a lot of money on it and if possible, save money! So, in today’s post, I’ll be sharing with you the most important tips I use to save money whenever I go grocery shopping.

1.Make a Budget

This is crucial. Knowing exactly how much you can spend on groceries will help you save so much money.

2. Make a Inventory

This might sound a bit crazy but trust me, it’s really helpful. Write down every single product you have. Make different lists: a food list (don’t forget to check the expiration date!), a hygiene list, a household list and a medicine list (again, check the dates).

3. Plan your Meals

Planning your meals will help you decrease the habit of buying unnecessary products. You’ll go to the shops knowing exactly what you need for your meals. I like to plan my meals weekly.

4. Make a Shopping List

Writing down everything you need will help you save money because you won’t buy what you don’t need.

5. Buy in Bolk and freeze

This is a great way to save money because you won’t be going to the shops frequently to buy fruit and veggies, that way, you won’t be tempted to buy things you actually don’t need. Also, this really good to make smoothies and soup!

All of these steps can be done with the help of a planner. Feel free to check these ones out: Money Planner (A5), Money Planner (A4).

Saving Money on Holiday

Since we are close to Easter, and most people take days off during this time, I decided to share a few tips that will help you save money while you’re on holidays.

1.Rent an Airbnb

Instead of staying in a hotel, rent an Airbnb. This will help you save a lot of money, especially if you have a big family.

2. Cook your own Meals

Restaurants in places dedicated to tourism are extremely expensive. If you cook your meals, you’ll be able to save more money.

3. Free fun

Do a little bit of research before heading to your destination, try to figure out where all the free fun is. In some cities, museums are free once a month. Finding this type of free fun will help you save money and still have a good time.

4. Travel Light

If you’re renting an Airbnb, make sure to rent one with a washer, this way you’ll be able to travel light and save money on you’re plane tickets.

These are all the tips I have for you, let me know if you have more in the comments down below.

How to Cut Down Plastic

We all are aware of how bad the plastic is for the environment, but the reality is that we’re so used to have plastic products on our daily lives that it becomes difficult not to use them. So, what I want with this post is to give you a few tips on what you can change so we can all cut down the plastic usage.

1.Say “No” to plastic bags

Get fabric bags instead. I love this tip, you can have really cute bags when you go grocery shopping, mine have different sayings and cute patterns. I also have smaller ones for fruit and vegetables (and they all match haha). What I also love about this is that you can throw them into the washer and they’re brand new again.

2. Shampoo and Conditioner Bars

Quit buying shampoo and conditioners stored in plastic containers. You can buy or make your own! I find that my shampoo bars last a lot longer then the “normal” shampoo I used to get, it actually saves me money. I also noticed a huge difference in my hair, it’s a lot healthier and growing faster because it’s not getting harsh chemicals like it used to.

3. Household Detergents

Make your own household cleaners and store them in glass containers. This will help the environment, and it will also be beneficial for you health since they won’t have harsh chemicals.

Spring Break with Kids on a Budget

Making childhood memories with your kids is one of the most amazing parts of being a parent. Most parents want to enjoy their kids’ breaks from school to spend time with them and help them create new memories and special moments. Let’s face it, this can get a little expensive rather quickly. On today’s post, I’ll be sharing with you how you can have the best time with them, on a budget.

1.Travel within the Country

If you really want to go somewhere else and discover new cities or villages, then the cheapest option will be to travel within your country. I advise you to rent an Airbnb instead of a hotel because it will be less expensive. Also, make sure to do a little research on free activities that the city might have.

2. Games

Renting a place or going to some sort of park to play games with them would be really fun. You could do a bit of research on Pinterest about new games that your kids have never played before, and even prepare a bag of goodies for the winners. It would definitely be a fun memory for them.

3. Activities

Planning a week of activities within your city is also a really good idea. For example, one day it would be going to an Aquarium, other going to the Zoo, and maybe also going to a museum about the things that they’re passionate about. At the end of the week, each one them could have a basket with memories and cute things from the places you’ve been.

I hope you and your family have an amazing time together.
