Despite popular opinion, life as a stay-at-home mom is not all lunches with the ladies and eating bon bons on the couch while catching up on our “soaps”. (I think the last time I watched a soap opera was in high school!)

No, there is REAL work to be done as a mom, wife and homemaker. 

Yes, the real “dirty” work is necessary, so we have put together a resource to help make things a little easier, more stream-lined and possibly even better organized so you can have more time to spend doing the fun work of being a stay-at-home mom.

(Although it is pretty fun when the bathroom is clean…for all of the 5 minutes that it lasts!)

Homemaking tips for stay-at-home-moms: cleaning, organization, DIY.

The work that we have to do each day can feel monotonous or tedious. (How many crumbs do we sweep up, dishes do we wash, diapers do we change, bathrooms do we tidy up?!)

Here are homemaking tips that we SAHM bloggers use and have included as part of A Complete Guide for Stay-at-Home Moms.

We have a couple of bloggers who have shared many cleaning and organization tips. I want to feature them and their articles and then you can scroll down to view even more homemaking tips from other SAHM bloggers organized by category.
