A master calendar is important to keep track of everyone’s schedule. Merge all family schedules, events, and deadlines into one visual guide – digital or physical. Whether it’s soccer practice, PTA meetings, or project due dates, this calendar will be your strategic command center, ensuring you never miss a beat.

2. Streamline Meals

Make a weekly menu, prep ingredients beforehand, and consider batch cooking for quick, nutritious meals. With a well-oiled mealtime routine, you’ll be able to enjoy quality family moments without the stress of dinner dilemmas. Use a quick and easy dry-erase board or use an easily accessible clipboard with paper.

3. Prep Like a Pro

4. Delegate

Delegate tasks and responsibilities to each family member based on their abilities. From setting the table to helping with homework, shared responsibilities teach valuable life skills while lightening your load. Even the youngest child in your home can do their share of chores. Create a chore chart that gets everyone involved.

5. Make A Command Center

Create a dedicated command center in your home—a central hub where important information, to-do lists, and reminders are housed. From school notices to grocery lists, a drop zone for pet leashes, and keys, to all the to-dos, this organized space will keep you and your family informed and in control, eliminating any chances of chaos. Here are a few ideas for creating the perfect command center that works for you.

6. Tech-Savvy Solutions

As the Boss Mom, it’s crucial to recharge your own batteries. Prioritize “me-time” to relax, rejuvenate, and pursue your passions. Whether it’s a yoga class, a good book, or a spa day, taking care of yourself ensures you’re ready to tackle any challenge that comes your way. Block out your calendar ahead of time every week so it doesn’t end up falling off the priority list.
