‘I only started using the planners last year. I had to organize my time and create a routine to be one step ahead, “she said

Freda explained that she was never an organized person, although after having children she felt the need to make the structured diagrams.

‘I only started using the planners last year. I had to organize my time and create a routine to be one step ahead, “she said.

“This year was so much better – it was hard to follow in the beginning, but in the end I went into routine.”

Although the weekdays are full of organized tasks and divisions, the weekends are much more relaxed with few schedules to follow unless an assignment has to be performed.

Drinking alcohol is only strictly limited until after the university semester has ended or when the company comes to visit.

Freda’s handy organization tips

* Plan ahead to stay up to date with daily duties and mother duties

* Meal preparation where possible to save time all week

* Cook and freeze certain foods or herbs, such as pasta sauce and curry

* Clean every day

* Make a fixed morning and afternoon task list

* Make a weekly schedule to act as a guide

The weekly schedule seemed to attract the most attention online, while other mothers noticed whether Freda ever had a break or time for herself.

A Facebook user said the plan made her tired by just looking at it and wondered if there was time left to enjoy fun activities.

‘There are many household chores to do one day! But where is the time for ‘life activities’? the mother asked, to which Freda replied that the gym is usually her only form of ‘me-time’.

“I don’t think I’ll ever relax after a busy day. I can’t just take a relaxing bath without being disturbed by my children, “she said.

Although the ‘one thing’ she described as her ‘escape’ is putting on makeup – sometimes even at 2 AM when she can’t sleep or relax.

“I don’t think I’ll ever relax after a busy day. I can’t just take a relaxing bath without being disturbed by my children, “she said

Her regular ‘daily cleaning routine’ is strategically split into two lists with ten morning tasks and 13 afternoon tasks, including vacuuming, cleaning up common areas and feeding pets.

“The morning tasks must be completed before I leave the house in the morning, but the evening tasks are done all night while I am eating or feeding the children,” she said.

“I hate cleaning, but I have to do these things to save my” common sense, “she wrote online.

She also encouraged those who rejected the busy lists to just “scroll past the post,” because the routines work for her.

‘Thanks for sharing. I’m going to show my children your daily cleaning routine. I try to help them more at home, “a mother said online

Despite the tiring task lists, Freda said she hopes that her planners will inspire other busy mothers to come up with similar planners.

“If you don’t intend, it’s a recipe for disaster. You have to plan, I can’t emphasize it enough, “she said.

‘Thanks for sharing. I’m going to show my children your daily cleaning routine. I try to make sure they help me more at home, “one user commented.

Another added: “Oh, and you inspired me by adding gym to the daily plan!”

‘Great ideas, I think maybe I should do this too! Life can be so hectic! “a third said.
