Luci McQuitty Hindmarsh

Hi, I’m Luci McQuitty Hindmarsh. I started editing Mums Make Lists in 2015.

I am super organised and usually have a spreadsheet, list or calendar entry for absolutely everything in life, from work schedules, meal planning, family schedules and household organisation through to parties and seasonal celebrations like the biggie... Christmas.

I find it helps me to stay on top of everything that needs doing and helps reduce potential stress.

The more organised I am, the quicker I get through the stuff that needs to be done and the more time there is for enjoying life.

Mums Make Lists is packed with ideas and tips to help you effectively manage and organise your home and family life.

Let me show you how to simplify family life, so that you can create time and space to thrive rather than just survive.

Potty Training Too Late?

The great potty training debate has reared it’s head again.It’s popped up this time in a story about children starting school in nappies because parents … in largely deprived communities … were not parenting effectively. For all its rather scare mongering tone I do think the story raises some questions. I know of plenty of devoted, …
