Modern family life is hectic and it can be challenging simply keeping on top of your work commitments, finances and social life. The key to juggling all areas of your life effectively is to ensure that your home is well organised.
Knowing that your home life is running smoothly will help you to concentrate better at work, while also giving you the time to enjoy your evenings and weekends.
Here are some ways that will help you to become more organised at home with the help of a little handy tool, known as a rubber stamp:
Use rubber stamps to keep on top of finances
One of the main concerns for many families is their finances. While it can be easy to let your direct debits go out each month and not worry about bills, keeping on top of your finances and knowing exactly what money you have coming in and going out will help to lessen the financial stress.
Filing away bank statements and bills will mean that you have them on hand should any problems arise. You can use number stamps or received date stamps to record the date you receive letters for future reference. Use paid date stamps too, so that you can keep a paper record of when bills were received and paid to complement your online records.
Planning your monthly financial budget will also help you to see if you can afford extra treats that month or if you need to watch what you spend for a while.
Create a chore chart for your family
A chore calendar is an easy and fun way to engage the whole family and delegate tasks is an easy to understand manner. A chore calendar makes it easy for kids to start doing little tasks for themselves and takes some of the pressure off of you; the parents.
Add simple tasks like brushing your teeth; making your bed; bringing down dirty laundry; basically, any age appropriate tasks which need to be completed every day. Allocate a fun stamp to each of your children and each time they complete a task, they get to stamp the chart. This will help everyone to become more organised at home and, as an added bonus, will help to begin to instil a sense of independence among your children.
Use miscellaneous rubber stamps for odds and ends
There are plenty of other ways you can start to use rubber stamps to help you organise your home life. Clothes stamps are a great example, particularly if you have children. How many times have your kids come home from school without their plimsolls or minus their school jumper? Just use a clothes stamp to stamp their name and this should help to eradicate lost possessions. Clothes stamps are especially appealing for those without sewing skills!
Education stamps can also be a great way to organise and motivate your children when it comes to that all important, but oh so dreaded homework. Create a home work planner and make fast organised work of revision and much more with this range.
So, here are some suggestions on how to become organised at home with rubber stamps. Simple but effective, and remember; preparation is the key to success!
