I was given the opportunity to read and review a book by Tanith Carey called Mum Hacks, Tanith is a mum of two, journalist and has written eight books so far and you can purchase her written work at any book store or online.
I think the hacks that I will use in my own life have to be the lunches, my eldest is about to enter year 3 which means he will no longer be having free school lunches at school, a delight for him as hes been asking for packed lunches since he started, but getting lunches ready in the morning more so with not only just one child, but three to get ready, is going to be tricky – planning the night before, which i agree with, I get their school clothes out folded neatly ready for them in a normal day, is the key to dealing with the rush, so getting their lunches ready the night before makes perfect sense.
‘Keeping laundry down’ part made me laugh, its great in theory, baskets in their rooms do work for a little while, I had one in our bedroom but the floor next to it got used a lot more, I think this hack needs others to be on board and I cant see my older two (plus husband who keeps putting his shoes in the bathroom and socks on the floor) would remember to do it.
All in all it was an okay book, many of the hacks I think many parents know already, some are very much common sense, and I think I was expecting it to be a bit more humors than factual as we all need a laugh every now and then.. but it has plenty of great tips to make being a mum a little bit more easy!
