Monthly Mission - Beyond closets and cabinets

I think that many people believe getting organized is all about decluttering your home and organizing all of your stuff into tidy containers. But it goes beyond that. What about the rest of your life, beyond the closets, kitchen cabinets and toy bins? How do you organize the rest of your life?

By nature, I’m a list person. Even as a kid I made lists. OK, I even indexed all of my books onto 3x5 cards so my sisters could check them out of my “library”. I used to rearrange my bedroom regularly, drawing out various floor plans to choose from. Yes, planning and organizing is part of my nature. (If it’s not yours, that’s OK, that’s why I’m here, to help.)

This month, I wanted to talk a little about planning and organizing the other areas of our lives, beyond the kitchen cabinets and bedroom closets. The following four areas are very important to me for keeping my home running smoothly. They are:

  • the family calendar
  • a daily routine
  • meal planning
  • grocery shopping

These four areas keep us on time for appointments and activities, keep the house mostly tidy, and help make sure there are meals on the table every day without a panic. I feel these are good areas to work on to help us feel more in control of our lives.

Please join us for our June organizing mission!

Until next time, happy organizing!
