Managing your home doesn’t have to feel impossible.

You can eliminate overwhelm, reduce your “busy” time and make managing your home a breeze with simple strategies that this eBook walks you through, step by step…….


I don’t have to tell you that things are bad. I don’t have to tell you that living in the 21st century is actually making life as an adult much harder. I don’t have to tell you that your time is being sucked away each day by things that you feel you have little or no control over. I don’t have to tell you that you spend far too little time doing the things you really enjoy with the people you love.


You’ve got the life you thought you always wanted but you feel overwhelmed every day. The combination of work and home and children and family and friends and neighbours and pets…you are Mother Mule; carrier of all things…..




You are the person that everyone comes to for answers, solutions, a shoulder, a response, a listening ear, a nose wipe, advice, ideas, cleaning, cooking, remembering everything…..


You feel like each day is a drain, each week is a blur and it all boils down to slogging your guts out day in, day out until you can get your ass on that beach in just six weeks time…..just to do it all over again. Every. Single. Year.


Your schedule = clean, cook, tidy, work, *manage mini-crisis*, sleep, eat, repeat.


Your “you time” involves a glass of wine on the couch for five minutes whilst contemplating the mess surrounding you and thinking about anything but your life choices….


The Key to mastering your home, time and life once and for all....



The question is, what do we do about it?


Right now, I want you to just think about all the stuff that would be really useful to know to reclaim your time.


Think about how you manage your home and your schedule.


Think about all the things school didn’t teach you that you wish you’d known before you flew the nest.


Think about all the times you had absolutely no idea when you grew up and why people are suddenly depending on you. All the times that you had no idea what the hell was going on and yet people were looking to you for a solution to a problem you didn’t even know existed.


Think about all the times you’ve used Pythagoras’s theorem versus all the times you really needed to know how to manage a problem that didn’t involve building a blanket fort and hiding! I bet you excel at the Christmas pub quiz, but do you surpass yourself when it comes to:


  • Time management
  • Budgeting
  • Home systems
  • Saving money
  • Organising
  • Planning
  • Generally kicking ass at adulthood…..


But it doesn’t have to be this way. You don’t have to struggle like this. This is not what life is supposed to be about.


What if you could manage your home in less than 5 hours each week?

Imagine if it were possible to have a home so organised that you know where everything is, instantly?

What if you had so much free time that you could actually start that side business you wanted to start, get a membership to that class or take up that new hobby?




“I’ve been ‘adulting’ for almost 20 years and yet Joelle and her no nonsense approach to Mastering the Art of Adulting has still managed to provide me with new information and guidance. Jo-Elle’s book provides the perfect resource to help no matter what stage of ‘adulting’ you are at.

The printables are fantastic and can be used time and time again. Joelle really has thought of everything you could need.

Although you may already be aware of a lot of the information in the book, having it all readily available in one place really takes some of the overwhelm out of the process as you can work through at your own pace while knowing you’ve not overlooked anything.

My eldest daughter has just moved into her first flat and I will definitely be getting her a copy of Mastering the Art of Adulting for Christmas, that way she can start as she means to go on.”

“Just finished reading ‘mastering the art of adulting’ and I must say I’m feeling quite inspired and motivated to get my life in order! This book has just come at the right time for us, as we are just about to move house and want to be more organised around the house, get decluttered and savvy with saving money and managing our debt. I now feel equipped with the right tools with the fab free printables included in the book, and I’m already visualising our new ‘command centre’ in our new home. I can’t wait to get started and have a fresh start, and maybe never have to get the annoying daily ‘what’s for tea?’ text off the husband again! Ha!

I feel this book is going to help us get on top of our debts and keep track of our finances. It will make us happier to see in black and white how close we are to our goals of being debt free and owning our own house, and will also make us much more organised and lead a more stress free life!”

“Love, love, loved reading this book! A lot of it is just common sense but it’s things that I don’t do. I needed to read this book to give myself a kick up the bum!

Meal planning; I know I should do this for the week but I never do. Then I end up spending a fortune in the supermarket trying to find meals for the week. After reading this book I have started asking everyone in the house what meals they would like and planning meals depending on what we have planned that week. Tuesday is always a hectic day as my boys have clubs till 4.30 then we set off for swimming lessons at 5.30 so tea needs to be something quick and easy. My slow cooker will be coming back out of the cupboard!

Organising my week on a Sunday and meal planning has actually saved me money and lots of little trips to the supermarket! It has also stopped me making different meals for everyone, we are trying to all eat the same meals which is a massive bonus as I have three fussy boys!

I am going to start getting organised with paper work and make sure everything has a place. I will finally tackle the junk draw!

The handouts are useful, particularly the overview of the week. I already have things in my diary but I have everyone asking me what is happening. I am going to start putting the weekly overview on the fridge then everyone can see themselves what we have planned all week.

I’m so glad I read this book and I will definitely be following some of the steps.”

Alison Hall, mum of 3 boys, Barkisland

So refreshing and honest. No gimmicks or trying to be the perfect person, talking about how life really is and how to go about it in an easier way. Reading Mastering the Art of Adulting, It’s made me want to re-look at how I approach situations. I feel so positive about taking a new approach. Such an enjoyable, positive and pleasant read xxx

Who doesn’t love a guide to adult life?! Let’s face it we’re all winging it, so a guide to getting things right and being more organised is kind of what we all need!

It’s straightforward to follow, and in true Joelle style, it’s an easy read, meaning you can pick it up and put it down…although I struggled more to put it down haha!

I also absolutely love the interactive side, with all the super helpful printables and the tips and ideas to making life easier, do just that. I can see this being a great gift not only to myself but to friends and family alike! Another great read from Joelle!!

Sadie Breaks – Tattoo Artist, Mum of 4, Halifax



Well Joelle’s done it again! This book is just what I need in my life. The printables are simple and easy to use and won’t cost a ton in ink to print!

The advice in the book is fantastic and makes you think “crap I leave that turned on” or “I run my washing machine at night”! I thought I had everything pretty much covered already, but this book made me realise I still have lots to sort and it’s a perfect excuse to add these into my planner and make myself some pretty stickers!

I love the down to earth approach to the book and the advice given. It isn’t like other books where the author rams down their wealth of knowledge and “if you’re not doing it my way then you’re doing it wrong”. Th brownie points for the husband is always worth it!

It also made me think that my 7 year old doesn’t do any chores at all, (even though she is fully capable) so this is something I will definitely be implementing in our home, much to the disgust of my princess child!

I loved reading this book, it flowed, it got to the point and it was simple, easily achievable, no- degree-needed-points that you can put into action. Thank you for once again sharing your journey!
