Have you ever woken up on a Monday morning and thought…
Believe me, I’ve had that conversation with myself many times over.
Any work at home mom knows the struggle is REAL. Hop on Pinterest and search for WAHM Organization and you’ll find magazine-worthy images of “boss babe” desks and set ups.
I envy those who have a WAHM space that resemble those popular images. But let’s get real.
Working from home is not easy AT ALL. And I’m all about products and tools that really do simplify my life and keep me sane.
So which products do I love to use to stay organized? Take a look at this list. I’m certain you’ll find one product to try in 2019 to keep you organized.
I have found that people have a lot of opinions when it comes to planners. To be honest, I never really understood planners until this year.
With two kids in two different schools and navigating the minimum days, spirit days, school events, (and on and on) I knew I needed one place to write down everything that goes on each day. So which planner do I use?
The reason I love this particular Day Designer Planner is because each page is laid out for 1 day. I can see my monthly obligations at a glance and I can get really detailed with my day to day commitments.
Another bonus, every day has a gratitude section. I have not used that section as much as I had hoped, but the days I did record a few things I was grateful for have really made me pause and appreciate all that has happened this year.
Desk Accessories (aka Pretty Things)
I used to have a HP laptop where I did all my work.
It was oversized, clunky, and I sometimes never felt pulled to WANT to sit and work.
When I purchased my MacBook, I was excited to open up my laptop. Plus I treated myself to a sparkly rose gold laptop case that has stopped other WAHM’s getting their caffeine fix at Starbucks. (perfect conversation piece for networking!)
The other staple item on my workstation is my rose gold cell phone holder. Stylish, helpful, and it makes it easy to take a video conference call.
If you want to really kit out your entire workspace, there is this pretty fancy rose gold desk accessory set. How cute are those Eiffel Tower scissors?
In 2018, I had some great opportunities in my business. You can find the full list of them here.
Webinars, trainings, and YouTube videos were outside my comfort zone but you don’t grow by doing the same things, right?
So I needed a set up with some fancy lighting and video tools. I honestly thought I needed a big lighting kit and tripod but really, the only thing I needed was this:
Super easy to set up and use, and it allowed me to record some great videos for my teams and others.
Coffee & Mug
You know what other things WAHM’s need?
Coffee (lots of it) and a super chic mug to drink out of. Some days you’ll find me in the Starbucks drive thru but for those times when I can’t get out of the house, I’ve got a fun flavor of Java Momma coffee and a super cute mug from Sweet Water Decor.
Now that I’ve shared my favorite WAHM products, I want to know what is YOUR favorite work at home mom accessory? Comment below!
