Project Organization.

August 9, 2011

I love organization & consider myself an organized person.

Disclaimer: my house has many rooms/closets/drawers/cabinets that you would look at and laugh at the previous statement.

But I do love to get organized and stay organized. Like my pantry. It looks just the same as it did in the pictures I took months ago! I am still loving it & want to do similar projects in other areas of the house. So, I am on a self-guided mission to reorganize one thing per week. That sounds easy enough, right?

For this week’s “Project Organization” I was inspired by this pin.

Since MDO and my job are starting up again soon, organizing our routine {like meals and cleaning} was a great place to start. I usually plan our meals out each week on Sunday, and there is a great printable from the pin above that lists out the days of the week and has a place for your grocery list.

From the same website I also edited and printed a weekly cleaning calendar. This is something I’ve used in the past {from FlyLady} and it has worked great. I still do FlyLady’s routine of a load of laundry every day and a clean sink every night, but I have been terrible about doing a specific routine of cleaning house. Lately it has been an all-day, panic-mode-because-we-are-having-company, entire house cleaning. That is SO not how Fly Lady says to keep a house in order! I’m hoping this helps me get back to a routine of doing a little every day.

Also, there is a great printable for daily organization (#1 on picture above).  It has everything I need on a daily planning sheet! It even has a place to check of my water intake, which is something I am totally NOT good at remembering.

I’m thinking these printables will be a lifesaver when we get back into our regular routine in a couple of weeks. I’ve already loved using them. I hope you find them useful, too!

The next thing to organize will be this:

See. I thought you’d laugh when I say I’m organized. My make-up drawer is insane. IT’S DRIVING ME NUTS. Inspired by this post, the madness of my this drawer will soon be a victim of Project Organization!

    Once again, I am inspired. Love these ideas. If you could only see my pantry. Ridiculous. Disgusting. Can’t find a thing. Might have to make this a goal for the weekend. I love the planners from Pin. I put in for my invite, but I have yet to get one – is that how Pinterest works? Is it a while before you receive an invite? Anyway – will be looking for these chalkboard labels for sure! Thanks!!
