Day planner for Moms Nix Need for Hired Help
According to a Sept. 25 New York Magazine article called "The Outsourced Parent", the pressure to "have it all" is causing working mothers to cope in unprecedented ways. Rather than increasing their organization to include a healthier family balance, moms are outsourcing their parental tasks to paid professionals–often at exorbitant costs! This article described one therapist who charges $4300 to help kids kick thumb sucking addictions, while another charges $99 a session to give kids the "birds and the bees" talk.
MomAgenda is the first to acknowledge fitting in time to parent can be stressful–but we also think there’s a better way! Instead of outsourcing your children, why not try increased organization to maximize your "mommy" time? Our gorgeous day planners for moms could be your first step.
Why could something as simple as day planners for moms be your answer? First of all, it is easy to get frustrated when you feel like you have a million vague, overwhelming tasks looming over your head at all times.

The multi–child schedule of our particular day planner for moms makes planning for every last little one a breeze!
Once you’ve got everything down in your day planner for moms, it’s time to prioritize. Does everything on your list have to be done today?

At any rate, going through your day planners for moms, scratching out what doesn’t need to be done today and rearranging the order of your errands for the most efficient route is a great start to personal organization.

Who knows, you may find your day planner for moms looking very different by the time you are done.
Instead of having a grocer deliver food to your doorstep every week, use the meal planning section of your day planner for moms to plan meals for the week and then use the time you saved by delegating to make one big weekly grocery shopping trip. We recommend Sunday nights for this task.
