Try to pick out you and your baby or babies clothes for the week. Don't wait to the day of to look for the perfect outfit! You have enough hard work and pressure to deal with for the day.
Buy gifts when you see them! Have you ever noticed that the parties and celebrations never stop? Sometimes you will have a birthday party, a baby shower, and a christening to go to all in one week. Instead of going out each time stock up on one size fits all types of gifts on sale to have handy.
 You have TV shows that you must see? Theres no reason you should sit through the commercials, while they are on, try to get small task out of the way, like sorting mail, restocking your diaper bin, clipping the baby's nails, etc. Or if your lucky enough to have your shows recorded you can save time by fasting forward through commercials for more time after your show, there's like 15mins of commericals the least!   
 STOP competeing with Martha! For those PTA meeting or celebrations at school or parties, your cookies do not have to be made from scratch. The frozen ones you can just pop in the oven, are just fine and tasty. My favorite thing to do, is layer my cooking pans with foil so thats less I have to scrub and less damage on my nails lol.
Stay organized, never touch a piece of mail twice. Once you get it, review it decided if its garbage or not, tear the parts with your information on it that you dont need off  and the mail you do need place them in order in a file, same with your emails if you dont need it delete it when you seen it. Its soo much better that way.
Dont get caught up trying to please everyone and becoming a short order cook. Plan out what will be fast and easy for you to cook for the week, and thats what it will be. When packing lunch making one BPJ sandwich and one turkey and one ham, will not leave you with all the time in the world. Becoming a short order cook will only have you extra sleepy, stressed and fat, because you will end up eatting late. No bueno!  
 Take all the help you can get. If its a babysitter, Grandma, your sister, your brother, or even the oldest child, take all the help you can  get. No one should sit with idle hands, have some one sweep and straighten up for you before you get home from work, if you have someone who knows their way around the kitchen ask them to clean and season dinner for you. LIKE I SAID, TAKE ALL THE HELP YOU CAN GET!
 Join the car pool, I know its hard to trust your child with just and driver, however it is important to get to know who you can trust with your child's life. If you do end up with all the driving, you will end up living in your car and trying to figure out how much time you have left to cook, clean, do homework, take care of your kids, socialize or have time for yourself.

 Who Doesnt love a bargin??! Everyone loves it! So we check out all the flyers and compare the prices at one store to another, and get ready to hit up all those places. However going all around town to save $2 on Tide will only leave you with $10 extra or more to spend on gas. Cut coupons and figure out what store would be best for you as an One Stop Shop Spot!
 Get your kids to help, most younger kids love to help with dishes and laundry, I'm not tooo sure about the dishes but! the Laundry can be a good thing to get someone to help, it would be a big help to fold and put away clothes.
 Another cooking tip, plan out the leftovers! When you cook try to cook extra so you can store stuff away for dinner the next day or even lunch.
 You always dont have to change the baby at the diaper table. It can be a something else to stop what you are doing where you are at, to get the baby and head toward the changing table. Bring papmers along with you so you can tend to your baby wherever you are.
