About 30-Minute Martha

Life doesn’t have to be perfect to be good.

I guarantee that your family won’t care if you hand-stitched your monogram on heirloom linens, or made your great-great-great-grandmother’s chestnut stuffing from scratch every Thanksgiving. They won’t care if you vacuumed the corners of the house on an hourly basis, or cleaned the corners of the bathroom with an old toothbrush on your hands and knees.

But they will care if you loved them and had fun creating a warm, nurturing home for them.

That’s the attitude 30-Minute Martha brings to homemaking. The goal is to make a home, not a pristine house. We know you’ve got more things on your To Do list than you could possibly complete in a 24-hour period. We know you’re already multitasking like crazy. We know you don’t have a lot of time or energy.

So if you’re interested in having fun while making a home, you’re in the right place.

If you want to create a lovely household but don’t have five hours to make a table centerpiece from actual turkey feathers (that you raised yourself on your free-range, organic hobby farm), you’re in the right place.

If you want to learn more about taking care of your family in a stress-free way, you’re in the right place.

Pull up a chair, grab a cup of your favorite beverage (full-octane, decaf, or a loaded margarita – up to you!), and make yourself at home. We’re glad you’re here.

    Very clever idea, can’t wait to see what you have in store for us. This couldn’t have come at a better time I was just saying how the kids don’t appreciate all the “Martha” things I do.

    Martha, have you ever looked into couponing? I am a huge couponer and have found that moms really benefit from it. Two websites that I use all the time are: http://www.iheartcvs.com/ and http://refundcents.com/subscriptions.htm?RefID=FDV0. The lady that runs http://www.iheartcvs.com/ also has other websites for the other drug stores across the country. The http://refundcents.com/subscriptions.htm?RefID=FDV0 site costs $30 for a 2-year online subscription – but once you’re signed up the lady that runs it offers a lot of incentives to participate and get your subscription extended for free. Let me know if I can give you more insight on couponing – I also love having Garage Sales!

    I have tried couponing but found it took too much time and I ended up buying things that we didn’t need. I still use the occasional coupon for items we use regularly (toothbrushes, detergent, etc.) but I’m not a regular… no time! I love hearing other people’s results, though!

    Lain (now that I know your name isn’t Martha!), it does take some time but it can be worth it. I “buy” (get for free) a lot of things I don’t need…but then I sell them in a garage sale and make a larger profit. Maybe I can write a guest post for your site about it – any ideas?

    Lain, I just wanted to let you know that I enjoyed your contribution to the “Saving Money and Time” ebook. Turning projects into tasks was a very helpful thought to me. I have not yet applied it but plan to tomorrow.
