Hey! Welcome to Efficient Momma. I’m Rachel and I like to think of myself as efficient. As in, I have very little patience and I like to find the fastest way to get things done while still maintaining a level of quality.
I think one of the most detrimental things to our confidence as moms is to feel like we’re alone in our struggles. Pretending we’ve got it all together robs us of the chance to connect with other women, which is why I like to keep it real here.
I try to be open and honest with what being a mom is like for me. Sometimes it’s the most amazing thing I’ve ever experienced and sometimes it downright stinks. I’m not the biggest fan of being pregnant and sleep deprivation can get really challenging, but I know these are all just seasons.
Speaking of getting through seasons, I wrote an ebook called Minimize the Mess: A Mother’s Guide to Simplifying Your Home to help mother’s take control of the clutter and spend less time cleaning. You can read more about that here though.
My Little Family
I’m married to my almost infinitely patient husband, Jordan. We both attended Benedictine College and met our very first day of orientation Freshman year. We graduated in May of 2011 and got married that June. Photo Credit: Laura Wills Photography
I’m a Momma to one lovely little boy named Noah and the sweetest little girl named Hailey. I’m Catholic and it’s a big part of my life so it might seep into my posts, but I’ll try not to shove it in your face.
I call myself semi-crunchy because I still have limits on what I’ll go green on, like reusable toilet paper (no offense to those of you who do though). I love the cost saving benefits of cloth diapers and the fact that they are adorable.
I love cooking good food for my family. We try to eat the dirty dozen organic and our meat is usually grass fed, hormone free. I do all of this on a budget though because we’re not made of money. You can read a little bit more about where I shop here and how I find good deals here.
