Simplify the After School Chaos Resource List

Thank you again to Mary Lou Retton for joining us for our podcast today. If you missed the show, please feel free to listen at your convenience and hear some of Mary Lou’s great ideas for managing the chaos, after school snacks, and how she makes family time a priority in her house.

Here are a few of the resources that were highlighted in today’s episode:

A Few Words About Convenience Foods- We talk a lot about how to save on convenience foods on our site. This post will showcase some of my ideas for making your own convenience foods and a few recipes to get you started. I have even explored if baby carrots are a convenience food because I love to maximize those grocery dollars as much as I can.

Schedule a Day in Your Kitchen- This post shares my idea on how I try to keep our grocery budget low by scheduling a baking day or prep day in your kitchen.

2008 Online Calendar Round-Up- This post is full of great online tools you can use to manage your day and/or your home business. Online calendars can be a useful tools for minimizing the stress of planning your day and your after school time.

On next week’s show…

I have two exciting podcasts happening next week that I would like to share with you about. I am partnering up with Walmart on a very exclusive and exciting project to interview one of the stars from the movie, “Twilight” based on the Twilight book series by Stephenie Meyer. I am going to be co-hosting this BlogTalkRadio show with Taylor Lautner, AKA Jacob, on a very special interview while the cast is on location for the second film (“New Moon“). I will be co-hosting this on the “Stardish Radio” program March 9, at 9 pm (EST).

Speaking from the set of The Twilight Saga’s New Moon, Taylor will take questions from fans “logged in” to BlogTalkRadio with host Jo Ann Kubasek (Stardish Radio) and myself. We are very excited about this opportunity and I am particularly excited because I am a mom and also a super fan of the books and I am so happy to represent the mom community and share about my own adoration for the books and the film Twilight. I hope you will be able to join me for that and again, it will be airing March 9, this coming Monday, at 9PM so be sure to mark your calendars.

On MomAdvice Simplified, next Thursday at 2PM EST, Aviva Goldfarb, Author and Founder of “The Six O’Clock Scramble” will be joining our show and sharing some of her tips for making dinnertime healthier while saving time and money along the way. She is the author of the book, “The Six O’Clock Scramble” and founder of She will be discussing time-saving tips for planning your dinnertime meals in advance, how to maximize your time and budget at the grocery store and how to waste less food each week. I am really looking forward to sharing that interview with you!
