Never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine myself writing a blog related to home organization. Not ever. Organization had always been a bit of a struggle for me, but after a few moves and having a baby, it became apparent that organization = SURVIVAL. Feeling overwhelmed prevented me from committing to this lifestyle change for a very long time. The game-changer for me was learning how to focus on one task at a time. This is not an overnight process. This is about learning how to replace bad habits with better ones. I did this by creating a household binder in an effort to keep all of my to-do lists, coupons, bills, etc. in one place. Because there is so much in my binder, I decided to break this down into a series with multiple blogs detailing the pages inside. To get started, these are the supplies you will need for your binder:
My daily task-list is the first page in my binder because it is compiled of tasks that have the most immediate need to be completed. You can make your own list or feel free to download a printable copy of my list here.
I put my list inside of a protective plastic sleeve in the binder so that I can reuse it each day without wasting paper. I check off my tasks with a permanent marker (wipes right off with rubbing alcohol or hairspray) and start all over again the next day. You can also write important notes or one-time, urgent tasks/appointment reminders on this list.
My top tips for daily organization upkeep:
