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?

The only room organized is the kids room and playroom. I am working on getting rid of clutter and getting more organized.

Im not organized! Hubby tells me all the time, only isue is i inow where everything is and cn give directions to find things!

To do list is on a big 20" white board on the kitchen wall! My list is usualy short while hubbys keeps growing and growing. Any tips to get him to accomplish his list?

List currently just a few
hand smoke alarm (since aug when we moved n)
Level stove (since aug, has what is needed to level it)
Build and hang shelf in living room for nick nacks(has supplies needed just hasnt done it)
Build kitchen table (have no supplies for but hes drafting the plans)
Hang towl bar n bathroom( sitting on bathroom counter) since aug!

Yes he works a 50 hour week but most of these take a few minutes... when i start he bitches and takes the tools back outside and returns 30 minutes later...

I love lists. 
To stay organized, I always put everything in it's place.

I program my "to do" list into my phone's calendar of events every night before bed. The alarms certainly help me remember the next day!

I am not a very organized person... I would love to be and have some ideas I am wanting to do but must wait until we catch up on other things first. I do use my calendar a lot to write down appointments, bills due, things I need to remember etc... Also I found that fry erase works great on the fridge so I have a magnetic dry erase marker on the fridge to write down grocery list needs.
