How do you create an opportunity for parent self care when you're busy most of the time? It seems you either have little time because you're working. Or have little money because you're not.

The following links provide great tips for work/life balance. I hope you find them as useful as I have.

If you think your self care is a priority and you plan for it, your family is more likely to see parent self care as important too.

My own children, (who grew up with these self care & home organization strategies,) use them because they saw first hand how well they work.

For example: How can you get to pay off your home early, have free time to spend with your kids, go on holidays, put your kids through university, even retire early?
