The day has finally come! The launch of The Stay At Home Mom Survival Kit! I have been so excited about this project from day one because it has become an irreplaceable tool for me as I start this journey as a stay at home mom. In the short amount of time that I’ve been enjoying this phase of life I’ve learned one thing: I have to stay organized, otherwise, chaos ensues. You probably know what I mean. You start doing the laundry and suddenly remember a bill that needs to be paid. As you write the check you realize you have got to get your finances in order, but don’t have the time to even think about creating a budget. Then the phone rings and it’s your dentist reminding you of an appointment. You whip up something for lunch and rush out the door. Oh no! Some of the ingredients you used were supposed to be for potluck later this week. You’ll have to go to the grocery store. After you’ve run all your errands you come home, exhausted, and the laundry you started in the morning is not even half done.
Sound familiar? As a mom, we take on the role of parent, cook, cleaning lady, activities coordinator, financial adviser, and so much more. We have so much to keep in mind and so much to do! That is where the Stay at Home Mom Survival Kit comes in. It is the one stop shop for keeping your schedule, finances, meal planning, activity planning, and cleaning in order. The single master organization system to optimize your time and lower your stress.
Ok, if that doesn’t convince you I don’t know what will…oh! Other than the fact that it’s FREE!
Another thing to note that this is only version 1.0 of the Stay At Home Mom Survival Kit.

It looks like a ton of printing, but I designed these to be as simple as possible without large blocks of color so your ink usage will be minimal. I have a bit of a pet peeve of bloggers giving printable pages that would be awesome, if only they didn’t cost an arm and a leg to print.
So, stay at home moms, I’m really excited to be giving this Stay At Home Mom Survival Kit to you because I know what it’s like to crave organization, but have no clue where to start.
If you haven’t noticed, I am passionate about moms staying home to raise their children. It’s the most selfless and thankless job, but possibly the most important anyone could ever embark on. You are raising the next generation of amazing people and you are doing such a great job of it already. I hope you take this free gift of the Stay At Home Mom Survival Kit as a tool to gain control of your household and find joy in running it. Thank you all for your interest!
