2020 has been quiiiite the year, am I right? A lot of small businesses have been hit hard by the pandemic, and that’s caused a shift in more people wanting to “shop small” to try and support them.
As the holiday season was approaching, I kept thinking, “Ok…everyone wants to shop small…but what if they aren’t familiar with any small businesses? How will they know where to shop?”. Being the insomniac that I am, I had a random idea in the middle of the night.
WHAT IF I could create a digital, small business gift guide/catalogue? You know, like the ones that Amazon, Walmart, and LEGO have been sending to your house for your kids? But this would be for adults, and all the products in it would be from a small business owner. That little spark of an idea became a flame and I got to work. Let me tell you a little bit about the 2020 Small Business Holiday Gift Guide.

As parents, it’s SO EASY to get carried away at Christmas. We get caught up in that Christmas magic; it’s just so fun to buy things for our kids! As we shop we’re anticipating their joy when they open everything. But what’s the consequence? We inevitably spend too much money, and we fill our house with more stuff. Not to mention, our kids usually have other people ALSO shopping for them; so there’s no reason we have to go overboard with our shopping! This year, I want you to try the “five gift rule”! So…what is the five gift rule?
One of the most common things that I hear from moms is that they can’t keep their house clean; there’s always something in the way of them completing all the housework. Now, I’m not a fan of housework, but I’m also not a fan of a messy house. I can’t STAND clutter, it just screws up my whole vibe. The only way that I’m able to consistently keep my house clean is with a cleaning schedule. This post will break down what a cleaning schedule is, why you need one, and how to start your own. PLUS it includes a FREE printable!
I know the scene: You’re busy in the kitchen and your kids are off raising hell somewhere else in the house. You run off to see what the problem is, meanwhile something in the kitchen starts burning or boiling over. So why not get your kids involved in the kitchen? There are a lot of lessons to be learned while cooking, which is why I’m a big advocate for getting your kids in the kitchen at a young age. I can sense your terror and anxiety right now, but I promise that there are plenty of things that they can (safely) help you with!
I know that in order to accomplish everything on your list, you’re willing to sacrifice sleep. Whether it’s staying up later, or getting up earlier, you’re losing precious time to rest so that you can accomplish all the housework, your actual work, or to just simply have some peace and quiet. But when you push sleep to the bottom of you priority list, you’re really doing yourself a disservice. In this post I’m going to break down why moms need to stop sacrificing sleep.
