Homeschool moms have never ending projects. So little time, so much on the project list.
One task gets done, then another cleaning task pops up. Examples of how mundane house chores keep moms from projects.
Summer routines will help homeschoolers to get their project lists in order and done.
Project lists can be completed when routines happen daily. Here is how: Create the allotted time.
If mom’s are always behind, doing chores, running to activities then the time slot is not open, summer routines give mom’s more time to complete their project list.
A routine is setting up, completing, and marking the item off of a list.
Each day take a look at the project list to see what item, how long it will take, and cost.
But when will you do this? After the morning routine? Before dinner? Part of the summer morning routine is checking the schedule and lining up the day.
How Do Routines Help With Home Projects:
- Homeschool moms need time to get the business of home management complete.
- Routines give moms the opportunity to see how much time they have in a day to complete a project.
- Routines help moms to stay on top of daily household schedules and needs.
Summer is the Best Time For Projects
Summer is a great time to have a project list ready to start. During the winter I will write down items on a list such as paint door frames, clean dog pens, finish porch and other items .
I am not able to get to these during the homeschool year, but if I set aside time in my summer , most of my projects get accomplished.
My daily routines help keep the home organized during the time allotted to complete my projects.
I have been wanting to work on pajama pants for the kids, but I keep this project for fall when we take a homeschool break, then I work on pajama pants.
How to get the most out of a Project list
- Prioritize the most important project first.
- Consider keeping a job board somewhere central in the house. Chalkboards or dry erase boards are great for this use.
- Each week check off a completed project. This will help with motivation.
- Focus On One Project At A Time
Daily Routines Help With Progress
Summer is jam packed for everyone. Summer fun includes swimming, camping, and anything outdoors. Instead of putting off family time, make sure good time management is in use for the home.
Summer can’t be all fun, though because when school starts it can be stressful for a homeschool mom to think about what did not get done.
Eliminate this stress. Whatever projects do not get finished do them next summer.
Time management is of great use in the business world and many professional people take classes to better their time management.
Homeschool moms also must diligently use time management. Starting out with a plateful of projects can set back free time with the family, so homeschool moms should exercise good time management.
