Welcome to Because I’m Lazy Dot Com

Hello. I’m Melissa, the mind behind becauseimlazy.com where I hope you’ll find lots of mom-tips for organizing, saving time and spending less.

You’re probably wondering what’s the story with the URL because I know I would be.

No, I’m not glamorizing laziness. In fact, it’s one of the traits I abhor the most in myself and others. Nope. Nope. Nope.

In fact, no one explained it better than Robert A. Heinlein who 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.”

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

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

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
