Today is the second podcast on my Organize 365 Podcast called Organizing Life's Stages and Unexpected Events.

In today's episode, I talk about life with 2 kiddos under 2! This is a BUSY and EXHAUSTING stage of life! As mentioned in the podcast, the early motherhood years are exhausting and life changing.

Here are a few orgnziational tips I can pass along to you if you are in this stage.

#1 Develop a morning and evening routine. 

Some days you can't even remember your own name! Having a list of items you do each morning and each night will add order to your chaotic days.

#2 Make lists.

When we were waiting to adopt Abby, I made a list of all the pictures I took in Joey's first year so I wouldn't miss them in Abby's!

I made a list of each of my kids' first 20 words and put them in their scrapbooks. :)
