New Year, New You Challenge Day 4: Get Organized!

Posted by   + Show Post

Welcome to Day 4 of the New Year, New You Challenge!

It's a new year and time for a new beginning which means it's the perfect time to clear the clutter and bring order to the chaos to your home and life. Containers and closet organizers can work wonders to keep things neat and tidy, calendars can help you track appointments, and lists can make it easier to keep up with everything you need to do each day.

Do you make yourself "to do" lists? What's your secret for keeping things neat and organized?

 Not so much a "to do" list but I do right down "must do" things that I can't forget. No need for a list though because it really never ends anyway.

I do make to do lists. I make lists for everything! Lol As far as being organized, I have filing cabinets for papers and tubs for different items that I maybe don't use often.

That is my biggest struggle. Because of that, this year will be dedicated to getting rid of all the extra in our house.

I just found this super cool app for your iPad or iPhone called cozi. It's a big finer calendar and you choose a color for each person in your family and then you just add all the events in your life and who is involved I love it!!

So busy lately, I am damned near falling asleep sitting up. I think a nap is in order.

I make lists to keep myself on top of my daily chores but not all the time.  I have no secret to keep myself organized, it's just the OCD in me

I don't make to-do lists. I just focus on one room at a time and get to work.

Oh yeah I have to make to do lists there are seven I take care of here. I stay organized by writing down what needs to be done each day and following the list. As we know though with kiddos our list can change periodically through the day, LOL.
