They make things sound so simple

I read blogs here and there. I am trying to learn ways to try and make my home more efficient, life run smoothly, and keep my home clean while keeping kids happy. Oh yeah, and don't forget about the ones about saving money, paying off debt and living frugally. They make everything sound so simple. Yes, routine, motivation, discipline and being well organized are key in just about everything, but when those qualities seem to be lacking, doing almost anything can seem like an uphill battle. I may just be fooling myself into thinking that I am going to find the magic 'something' that is going to make it all happen. Of course it isn't! I need to make these things happen myself. Find routines, motivation and such, that works for me, my family and my home. I'll let you know when that happens. Hehe.

Start small. Pick one chore...whether it is making soup from scratch every other day or making your bed as soon as you get up in the morning...it quickly becomes a habit. The feeling of satisfaction will help to take a second step...it gets easier!

Yes you're right. They make things look easy when it doesn't always work for everyone

No magic here. It is only a matter of being consistent. Start small, it can be done.

I would love to hear when that happens. Then maybe I can get the "magic" from you. It does take our own efforts and motivation to get into some routines. Then everything can fall into place somewhat. Key for me was getting rid of a lot of stuff. And I still don't have those routines.
