As you can imagine, I get asked a lot of questions from people. Money questions, sure, (I mean…that is what I “do” after all). But as I share more and more of my life in Vlogs, on Instagram, and even in person by way of speaking engagements and events, I get asked more and more about my personal and family life (which I love, just for the record! Open book, happy to share, if you couldn't tell by my live Q&A I did the other day).
Of all the questions I get asked, the most common – by a landslide – is…”How do you get so much done?” “How do you handle all your to-do's?” “How do you have so much energy?” or, the kicker…
“How do you do all you do?”
I always cringe a little when I get asked, because there is so much I DON'T get done in a day! I used to crack a joke and brush it off. Then I realized that, as moms especially, we are always looking for ways to get more done; to stay on top of the daunting to-do list, and to try to tread water a little less and be proactive a little more.

What's the first thing that I'll tell you works to keep everything straight? My To-Do book. I've had a TON of questions about it since posting on planning our year in advance video. So here you have it! Here's one of the methods I use to tackle my mile-long to-do list, and try to stay as organized and productive as possible.

Super simple right? (Our word for the year is “simplify” after all…)
Since I KNOW you are going to ask, here is a shopping list of adorable notebooks and planners that I put together from Amazon that would work great as a to-do book. But again, I love TJ Maxx, Home Goods, and Ross Dress for Less the best.
