Free online class: How to reach the bottom of your laundry basket!

A couple of years ago I ran a free online class about how to keep up with your washing! I wasn't sure people would want help with their laundry but it turned out to be very popular..

I've just updated it, so if you want to re-watch or if you missed out the first time, head over now and take a look!

In this workshop you will learn:

* How to avoid washing basket overflow

* How to deal with mountains of clean washing easily

* My top 5 laundry tools

Plus some sneaky little tricks that will lighten your load when it comes to Laundry ;)

Go back in time with me, plus free training from my B-School mentor Marie Forleo

Today I'm sharing something special for other Mums who run their own business (or would like to this year).

This won't be of interest to everyone, so if you're simply here with me for my organising tips, I completely understand if you'd like to skip the rest of this post and get back to the start of your weekend. We'll have another catch up together mid next week :)

But if you're one of the many lovely ladies who have asked me in the past year about how I created and grew my business and whether it's something anyone else could do, this email answers those questions.

I LOVE the work I do here at Beautifully Organised - I have my very own space in the world to share what's happening in my life each week (my wins and my own struggles as a busy mother!)​ and I get to help other mums who are feeling overwhelmed in their home, their life and in motherhood.

What started off as a blog to record the organising tips that were working in my home, has turned into a lovely little corner of the online world that I can call my own - and from which I earn an income that allows me to spend more time with my little family.

Want to have a peek at the transformation over the years? Here's a look at my website each year from the very beginning:

Big changes to the website! And a lot of growth in my business too.

Now just in case this is something you want to do too - create a business around something you're passionate about (whether that be organising, or any other topic) - I'm sharing the resource I used to make that leap from blog to business.

You'll see a lot of people talking about Marie Forleo's B-School over the next few weeks, as this year's enrolment for the course starts shortly.

I'm a proud affiliate partner of Marie Forleo's B-School (which means I may earn a referral fee if you take the course on my recommendation).

I took the course for the first time in 2012 and it was a life changer. It's an 8 week program for entrepreneurs who want to leverage their online presence to make more money and change the world.

I know there are a lot of you out there who want to do just that - create your own business that lets you earn great money doing something you love, that also makes a difference to others.

I get asked almost every week about how I started and grew my business, and B-School is the program I recommend every time - because it's the reason my business is where it is now. It was the real starting point to my whole entrepreneurial journey. And I've loved every step :)

Whether you take B-School too this year or not, you'll get so much out of the free training Marie is releasing this week - I highly recommend checking it out here.

In her first video, Marie shows you what it takes to start and grow your business online and shares her own story too.

It will really get you thinking about how this could work for you.

The 3 free videos are only available for a limited time and I don't want you to miss any of them, so over the next couple of weeks you'll see a dedicated blog post from me each time a new video is available. 

I'll also keep you updated about the program when enrolment opens in case B-School feels like a good fit for you this year.

If you have any questions about Marie's free training or B-School, email me and ask away! I'm happy to share more of my story if you're interested.

Tips for Easier Back to School Mornings

 photo ed503a21-2044-4302-a2ca-2ca78fce46e4_zps4ovdsbfo.jpg

It's almost Back to School time!

Our Sophie is starting 'big school' this year and we are SO excited!!

But all of this primary school business is new to me, so I've been asking around trying to see what kind of things we should be thinking about while we get ready for Back to School time.

I picked up so many great tips from Reena's post over at The Mummy Project and also Sophie and I have been chatting about 2 things we think will be a challenge:

  • Remembering to pack everything into her school bag
  • Getting ready in time for school

With preschool it's not too much of a rush - ours is a daycare with a preschool program and if we are a few minutes late it's no big deal, but primary school is different - Soph needs to be there for an 8:55am start every day, and while I know sometimes things happen that you can't control, I really want us to get the hang of getting ready with plenty of time to spare, so we don't have to rush into the school gate just as the bell is ringing (or later!)

So in this week's video we are sharing 2 simple things we are doing to help us get ready in time for school!

And don't forget to check out the other great tips over at The Mummy Project - they're really helpful!

What are YOUR tips for easier Back to School Mornings??

Want to know a bit more about me? 

The normal person, real life, not-sure-you'll-like-what-you-hear-but-hopefully-that's-ok-cause-we're-all-human stuff?

On this video I'm answering all of the questions below! I bet you already know the answer to a few of them but a couple may surprise you ;)

1.) How many kids do you have/what age(s)?

2.) Do you feel like you have it "all together" everyday? cleaning/laundry/beauty/etc.

3.) When do you make time to shower? day/night?

4.) Do you wear makeup everyday?

5.) Do you style your hair everyday? or pony tail it?

6.) When do you find time to do your hair and makeup? when the kids are awake/asleep?

7.) Do you workout? when?

8.) What is your household cleaning routine? do you clean everyday?

9.) Do you ever get overwhelmed with all the responsibilities as a mom?

10.) How often do you have alone/"me" time? and how do you relax?
