Getting Organized-Start with a List

Yep, it's that time of year!  Time to organize!  I'm completely a list person-I find that it's easiest to organize my thoughts and to do's when they are all listed right in front of me.  Before you dig into all the boxes and piles sitting around (I know I've got plenty) take time to organize what needs to be done in each room.  The office might need drawers cleaned out while the closet might need all sheets and towels sorted by size, etc.  Some rooms might have the same things on them...i.e.  clean ceiling fans, dust base boards, remove dust bunnies, etc.  Once you have each room done with its own list you can create a master list with things that are consistent from room to room.  That will give you a great starting point to start checking things off of your list.  From there move room to room and just go down the list!  You'll feel great when you get to check something off of your list and your house will get organized in the process!  To make things easier I made a little printout just for you!


Click here to download the PDF and print as many as you need!  There's 2 to a page so just trim it in half and you're good to go!!!


P.S.  Start saving your tin can lids from the recycle bin in the kitchen!  I've got a great little project coming up and you'll want to already have some on hand to make your own as soon as I've got the tutorial posted!
