I created this Get Organized Checklist series to help busy moms make daily life more manageable. We all know that when we are organized, life runs more smoothly. The problem is finding the time and energy to GET organized.
I can only tackle intimidating projects by breaking them down into small, manageable pieces. So, rather than trying to organize my entire life over a weekend, I’m tackling one area at a time.
Each week I choose a new area, break it down into simple steps, and create a checklist to mark off my progress. If you want to tackle this task with me, bookmark this page and check back every week for a new checklist.
Not ready to take on a detailed overhaul of your whole home? Get the essentials in order with this annual get organized checklist.
Week 1 – Command Center
The command center is the hub of my home so it’s the first space I tackled when I decided to get organized.
Week 2 – Taxes
The best time to set up your system for tracking tax documents is at the beginning of a new year, not the day before you start preparing your tax statement. This checklist will help you set up a system that will make tax season a breeze.
Week 3 – Linen Closet
Following the holiday season, my linen closet was a disaster area so it was the next area I focused on.
Week 4 – Laundry Room
Folding and organizing all those linens from the previous week, drew my attention to the laundry room. Ours got an overhaul with this checklist.
