Roundup and Link Love: Welcome to Mandi Edition!

The Life Skills Network has added a new member and we’re very happy to have her on board! Mandi from Organizing Your Way has joined our eclectic band of bloggers and we’re all excited to introduce her to our readers.

Here are a few of her recent posts:

  • Stress Free Back To School: Helping Your Child Organize For Success was a great article. I particularly liked Key Tip #2 – Make organization a family value.
  • How I “Do It All” is a post about how she manages her priorities. I loved reading her “Things I Do” vs.. “Things I Don’t Do” list.
  • Nesting: Preparing For A New Baby Part One describes her preparations for baby number FOUR. Add in that she runs three blogs and homeschools her other three children and I’m just left with … wow.

I hope you enjoy Mandi’s writing as much as I do. We’re very glad to have her on board!
