September is always a busy month. Not only the end of summer but the beginning of a new school year and and marks the approach dare I say it Christmas. So make the most of September and on’t let this busy month pass you by without trying some of the Busy Mums September to do list tasks.
Enjoy a last barbecue or late summer picnic before the weather gets too cold.
Sort out your winter wardrobe in readiness for that cold autumn day.
Give yourself a treat. Now the children are back at school give yourself a little me time. The school holidays maybe have been great fun, but they can leave you feeling drained. Taking time out to recharge the batteries even if it is just for a couple of hours is a good personal investment that both you and the family will all benefit from.
Set yourself some new school year goals or resolutions. It maybe to get up earlier, or have a weekly menu plan. Maybe your goal is to join a gym, or lose weight. September is a great month to start a fresh with whatever you would like to achieve.
Go native. September is a great month to forage for blackberries, visiting pick your own fruit and veg farms. If that is not quite for you make the most of all the fresh vegetables and fruit that are at their cheapest and most plentiful now.
Have a clear out. September is a good month to throw away or give away clothes which the children have grown out of or worn out.
Decluttering Toys. September is a good month to have a bit of sort out on the toy and general clutter front. Toys which are broken, not played or enjoyed by the kids, need to be taken out of circulation and either thrown out or donated to friends, the Christmas Bazaar, or your favourite charity.
Make a list. If your kids are at school or starting school make a list of all the back to school stuff.
Check and plan. Does the children’s school uniform still fit? Do they need new shoes? Have you managed to label everything? Do your children have all the equipment they need, from pens, to football boots?
Routines are good. If your children are at school, or just starting school put in place a morning and evening routine.
Keep the diary free. Don’t schedule too much in during the kids first week back at school. The children will be tired and quite possibly grumpy.
Review your finances. September is a good month to check your finances. Christmas is not many weeks away and many of us are still paying for our summer holidays.
Enjoy September and try to follow the Busy Mums To Do List.September
