This article, entitled "Organizational Challenge," comes from Erin Ferris at Chasing Roots.
Even if organizing is your least favorite thing to do, tackling one small project each day can make the task far less daunting.
And if January is too overwhelming of a time to start, plan ahead now and turn it into a goal for February. After all, February generally has less travel, fewer school events and only one holiday. Not to mention that it's usually fairly unpleasant outside, which makes staying inside to organize the linen closet and decluttering the kitchen cabinets a little more enjoyable.
Here's a 21-day Organizational Challenge - courtesy of Holiday Sparkle - that I'm excited to (try to) tackle throughout the month. Though I'm sure the idea is to start the challenge on day one, complete one task each day, and wrap things up 21 days later, grant yourself a grace period and aim to finish the 21 tasks during the month.
Here are the 21 tasks:
I plan to make adjustments here and there (for example, I have very few craft supplies and will therefore need to find something else to organize that day - perhaps my computer desktop) and to take at least one day off every week, but I WILL make it through this list before the end of February. Care to join me? I'll include periodic reminders at the end of some of my blog posts so that you can stick with me, and I'll post before and after photos whenever I remember to take them.
Here's to an organized New Year!
