I wrote another guest post!

This time, it’s for my blogging friend Kris over at Chronicles of a Father With Cents. Kris and his wife just welcomed a second little boy into their lives—so there’s not a whole lot of time for blogging right now! (Congrats again to Kris and his wife!)

About the guest post

Having been through the birth of one child already, Kris knew how busy life would be once baby #2 arrived. He smartly planned his summer blog posting schedule ahead of time, and asked if I’d like to help with a guest post. Of course, I gladly accepted! 

I sent a few ideas to Kris, and he decided on Time Management Tips for Parents—which is fitting, given how time-strapped new parents are.

If you struggle with stress and overwhelm, this post will help. In it, I share everything I’ve learned about time management over the years. You’ll learn 11 simple, free ways to help you start taking back your time today!

After publishing this guest post, I discovered even more helpful time management tips from fellow blogger Bella Wanana. Check out her post to get even more productive!

About Kris

My first encounters with Kris were in the comment sections of many of the blogs I followed. He seemed like a nice guy and was always one of the first to chime in with a supportive, friendly comment. I decided to check out his blog, and discovered we had a lot in common: 

  • We’re really into personal finance.
  • We enjoy reading (especially about personal finance).
  • We live in expensive coastal cities (Kris lives in San Francisco).
  • We’re close to our families and enjoy spending time with them.
  • We’re parents of boys (and now Kris and his wife have two of them—just like us!)

I’ve enjoyed following along with Kris and his family as they’ve navigated the high cost of living in San Francisco. From preschool application dramas to the hunt for a reasonably-priced home, there’s always something interesting going on at Kris’s blog!

If you’re not a follower yet, I highly suggest you subscribe to Kris’s blog today. 🙂

    Thanks again Chrissy for doing a guest post on my blog. And like you said it’s a busy time for me and my family right now with our 2nd baby arriving a few weeks ago so it was great of you to do this. A timely post too as we are trying the best ways to manage our time with a newborn demanding a lot of our attention on top of our 3-year-old. It is really important on how to balance out our time with the responsibilities we all have.
    Hey, I think you mentioned in my one of my posts that you’re a Gen-Xer!! I’m a Gen-Xer too so that’s another thing we have in common. With all the millennials blogging in the PF community it’s nice to find someone else that is in the generation 🙂

      Hey, you’re right! I forgot that we’re both Gen Xers. There’s definitely fewer of us in the PF community. I’ll have to edit the post to include that. Thanks for reminding me!
