Organizing with Small Children

This month’s Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival is all about Organizing with Small Children. This is especially important right now, with families spending so much time at home. And May is all about mothers, isn’t it?

Let me start by thanking all my readers who took the time to contribute their organizing expertise to this Carnival. Please show them your appreciation by leaving comments and sharing their posts (or this one) on social media, using the hashtags #OrganizingChildren.

I’m now accepting submissions for June’s Blog Carnival, when the topic will be Desk Organization. You have until 7 PM EDT on Tuesday, June 16 to make your submission.

Do you offer a product or service that would interest professional organizers, productivity consultants, or their clients? Why not maximize your exposure by sponsoring an upcoming edition of the Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival?

I recommend...

A former professional organizer, I now eliminate stress for my clients by hosting, monitoring, and maintaining their WordPress sites so they don’t have to worry about security, downtime or performance issues. When I’m away from my desk, I enjoy reading, photography, watching movies, and cooking.

    Many thanks, Janet for the opportunity to share. With so many parents at home with their kids, these posts will be especially helpful to parents.

    Thanks for including me in this roundup of great advice. I’m guessing that now, with children home all day, is the perfect time for this blog carnival. I’m missing the days of having my children around, but I’m sure that is somewhat looking back through rose-colored glasses. It is exhausting to have little ones underfoot all day. This will be helpful information for any reader who stops by:)
