In today's world, everyone is busy. People always seem to be rushing from one activity to the next and trying to do several things at once in an effort to save time. Working mothers understand "busy"- they're basically working two full time jobs, and it's no wonder why working mothers often find it difficult to balance everything in a neat and organized fashion!

Time management and organization have become popular topics of discussion. Everyone seems to understand that they are the key ingredients to living a life with less stress, and the solution to finding the time to fit everything into jam-packed schedules.

Time management for working mothers is in a category by itself! Strategies and tips designed for the single working professional aren't going to be as effective for the working mother, so here are some tips geared for women who are dedicated to raising their families and to moving up the corporate ladder.

Make Friends With Dawn

Dawn- as in the early morning hours, that is! Getting up early for most people is a challenge, but getting up before the kids wake up can be the difference between a stressed out, psychotic mother and a sane one!

If the household tends to wake up between 6 and 7am, set your own alarm for one to two hours earlier. Use this time to have a quiet cup of coffee or tea, check your email, exercise, read the paper or if you have a big day ahead of you, prepare for your workday.

What you don't want to use this extra quiet time for is housework! It can be tempting to throw in a load of laundry or empty the dishwasher, but that would defeat the purpose of having some time each morning for yourself.

Prepare for the Morning Rush the Night Before

Almost every time management and organizational article will recommend that you select your clothing and set them all out the night before you plan to wear them. Have you ever placed professional clothing on the back of a chair? No matter how careful you are, you'll wake up to wrinkled clothing most mornings and have to pick out something else, anyway!

What may work better for you is to look through your clothing and decide what you are going to wear mentally- but leave it all hanging in your closet or folded neatly in your drawers.

Group Similar Activities Together

When making dinner, also prepare the next day's lunches for your children, and prepare baby bottles for the sitter's if need be. If possible, gather everything for the next morning's breakfast, as well. It seems like such small, trivial tasks but if you make it habit to do all of this while you're already in the kitchen preparing dinner, you'll save precious minutes in the morning.

Another tip is to cook or prepare several meals at once. Some people spend a couple hours on Sunday afternoon preparing meals t...
