When I started part-time I knew I needed to do something “extra” each day instead of the usual cleaning. Over the last 4 years of living here, so much has gotten shoved to the bottom of a very long to-do list. Just keeping up with laundry, dishes, wiping counters, cleaning sinks and mirrors, the floors, and so on and so on and so on…..was enough to keep me from doing anything beyond that.
Every time I open a closet, there is the clutter staring at me saying “Remember when you shoved me in here in 2015 and said you’d do it next weekend/next month/next Thanksgiving Break?”
So I’m taking a stand against that clutter and getting it organized!
I started with a list and every weekday in August, I tackled one of them.
I know you don’t care how neat my Tupperware cupboard is or how organized it looks under my bathroom sinks . BUT I do hope it inspires you to make your own list and cross some projects off. My house is starting to feel cleaner, bigger! I feel less stressed without having to struggle in the Tupperware cupboard or dig through all those cans and bottles to find my mousse!
Having a calendar with a plan is definitely going to hold me accountable! I’ve made a Mission: Organization Calendar for you, too. One version has my plan for the rest of September to give you some ideas. The other version is a blank calendar for you to print and fill in. I also have a second calendar that’s exactly the same, but it is editable. Enjoy your organized house! And let me know if you are using it by tagging me!
