Learning to Love What Must Be Done: A New Resource for Real People Living Real Lives

Does your life feel out of control sometimes (or even - sigh - all the time)?

Have you bought so many books on organizing, using your time wisely, & managing your home that you could fill a bookcase? (A bookcase that you probably bought at IKEA in the hope that it would bring order?)

Do you declutter one area of your house, just to see some other spot fill with things you don't want?

Have you ever felt like you need to clone yourself just to get half your to-do list done?

Does it just seem like too much?

My friend Mystie knows where you're coming from. And she's designed an amazing resource to help anyone who is seriously ready to stop reading about "Getting Organized", stop pinning all those really cool "organizing tips", and actually, you know, do it.

This is for all of you who are ready to get on with it already:
Learn to love what must be done

Here's a little taste of what you'll learn:
  • Change the way you think about your responsibilities.
  • Improve your mood.
  • Learn to use tools like calendars and an inbox to help you get more done and gain peace of mind.
  • Become happier and more fulfilled as a homemaker.
  • Devise systems that will help you stress less and accomplish more.
  • Keep your home reasonably clean while getting to everything on your (shorter) task list.
The course includes video tutorials, audio lessons, customizable templates, planning options whether you prefer paper and pen or digital, clear instructions, frequent live group chats with Mystie, and more.

There are six modules and loads of extras. Don't let it overwhelm you: you can work through at your own pace and there will be lots of encouragement from Mystie and the community she's putting together. Research suggests that people exercise more when they have a friend to work out with them. This is the same idea: we'll all be there to encourage each other, to build each other up, and to offer suggestions of what has really worked for us along the way.

Just writing this post is making me more excited about all the possibilities. Yes, I am an affiliate for this course (which means if you buy after clicking through with my link, I'll get a portion of your fee. It won't add anything to the price you pay), but I'm also signed up to take it right along with you. We're in a new (to us) fixer-upper house, we've started a new homeschool year, and we've added a few new obligations to our to-do list. This is the perfect time for me to renew my love of what must be done, and then do it.

This isn't about Martha Stewart type "all your flower beds should be this size" or "fold and store your Christmas linens in alphabetical order by color" rules. This is about real life, right where we live, with real challenges, and real schedules, and real women (and maybe some men!) who are busy during the day and tired at night and wondering if they've done enough (and seriously, will the laundry be caught up?).

So, what's the cost? $99.

I know. It sounds like a lot. And honestly, it might be too much for some of you. This might not be the right time.

But for those of you who are thinking about all those organizing books that didn't deliver, all those Pinterest pins that haven't fixed the root problems, all that money spent at IKEA that didn't fix everything, and all those good intentions that just didn't quite work out...well, this might just be the right time for you.

And if it is, here's the good news: The course is discounted 30% from now until September 2nd using the discount code: backtoschool when you checkout. So that means $69 (forgive me for stating the obvious if you already did the math in your head) and then you can get started claiming back your life.

I've never promoted anything quite like this. I'm new at this whole "affiliate" thing. And honestly, my frugal self hates asking people to spend money. But I really do believe in this and I think it's a great value. I believe in Mystie, a real-life, married, homeschool mom working from home (including all the work she's done on this). I believe in the course she's designed. And I believe the community she's building of like-minded real-life homemakers could be the best thing of all about it.

And whether you feel like your life is a complete disaster, or you just need some help tweaking your schedule (or your attitude), I think there's something here just for you.

Thanks for considering this fantastic course. Ready? As the Home Depot commercial says, "Let's do this."
Get organized. Stay organized.

I think this is the first time I've been called a work-at-home mom, but I suppose that's more and more true, as it turns out. :) But, really, all homeschooling moms are work-at-home - it's a big job in itself!

You are DEFINITELY a work at home mom. I'm starting to call myself that too. Amount of income does not determine amount of work. ;)
