While planning may require extra effort and discipline, that working moms may not readily have, the benefits in terms of chaos control, goal achievement, and personal satisfaction make it a worthwhile endeavor. As a bonus, planning for me is very decompressing and therapeutic. In today’s post, I am sharing different types of planning that are most helpful for working mothers.

I will also use this category as an umbrella for home tasks and projects such as meal planning, decorative projects, and remodeling.
