Welcome to Because I’m Lazy

I’m Melissa and here I am towing my 50# progenies trying to get some exercise as a work/stay-at-home-mom to two. If I look angry, it’s because that tiny (but steep) hill behind me kicked my butt.

Robert A. Heinlein is quoted as saying “Progress isn’t made by early risers. It’s made by lazy men trying to find easier ways to do something.”

And this blog was borne out of a desire to help other moms find easier ways of doing things.

From tracking our family’s spending to single-handedly hauling two kids on a transatlantic trip, I share shortcuts I’ve learned and tools I’ve created.

I call them “Everyday Productivity Enablers.”

After years of working in operations and Human Resources and then becoming a stay-at-home-mom, I found that thorough planning and using processes nets me less work in the long run.

And who doesn’t want that?

So if you are looking for ways to free up time and still get things done, feel free to browse our articles. Here are a couple of my favorites:

Automatically track your spending with our Money Micromanager

Create tutorials using Steps Recorder and help your colleagues get it right the first time
