We spend a lot of time at our workplace, and for many this means a specific uniform or workwear wardrobe. When I worked in an office, although we didn’t have a strict dress code, I tried to have 2 wardrobes. One for work and one more casual.
Having a small house, with a growing family (well, we’ve done growing now) means lots of extra ‘stuff’. Whether it’s mountains of clothes, toys, baby products, or my many bottles of heavy duty foundation to cover the bags I’ve accumulated through motherhood. And I’m not talking about Tesco carrier bags!
No matter how much organising I do, I’m always looking for more ways to store things; it’s never ending!
Bed Guru have asked me to share the little ways I’ve created storage in my bedroom with you. Having small bedrooms means I’ve had to deal with tackling limited storage space, so we’ve had to be clever about it.
With Christmas fast approaching I’ve been thinking about saving and have come up with these money saving tips ideal for families.
Our personal finances haven’t been great for a few years now. After both my husband and I were made redundant within 10 months of each other, our household income dropped drastically. I became a stay at home mum and my husband started an apprenticeship as an Electrician. Fingers crossed he will be finished by December and can start earning a little more.
I’ve been a work from home mum for almost 2 years now and it’s just as hectic as it was when I was first made redundant! You’d think by now I’d have some sort of routine. But then I wasn’t expecting my second child to be as crazy as he is. All hands on deck with Bear.
I still feel strange calling my self a ‘work from home mum’ because I don’t have an office area where I sit and work. I don’t have a regular income and I don’t wear a uniform. My uniform is usually my pyjamas!
But I do work and I’m self-employed. So I need to stop being so modest and be proud of what I’m doing. Even if I can’t afford to buy myself any new clothes…
