After moving this summer, we unpacked the "main" parts of the house, but left 1 room full of boxes that we just haven't gotten around to. I drove myself crazy over the Christmas break trying to find a few things that I knew we had SOMEWHERE....
So for 2015, my goal is to finally get the house set up and organized from top to bottom. I'm employing two different tools - flylady
, and 52 weeks to an organized home.
Each site sends me weekly goals to accomplish (each broken down into small daily tasks), and I'm going to tailor each to fit my needs a little better. One (flylady) focuses more on cleaning/decluttering, and the other more on organizing. On top of their daily/weekly challenges, the hubs and I will still have our big weekend projects for home repair/improvements (which is why we originally stopped unpacking - there were too many projects to focus on!).
I'm hoping that the automatic e-mails filled with mini-goals for each day will help me stay focused during the week, and help me to avoid biting off more than I can chew for a day. Since I have a habit of trying to do a huge list of items at a time, I think the smaller, 15-minute tasks will be more realistic to attempt during the weekdays, and thus, less discouraging.
Does anyone else have a New Year resolution that has to do with cleaning or organizing? What goals/encouragement/task list tools are you using (if any)?
Have you used either of these sites before, and if so, were they helpful to you?
