It is nice to have a few ideas for posts! Writing every day gets a little crazy, but it is a fun challenge.
So, onto my plan. As most of you know, I really struggle with organization. It just doesn't come naturally to me and I get overwhelmed very easily. Usually I will set a crazy goal such as, "I will have the whole house completely organized in the next 2 weeks." I do a marathon cleaning and organizing day and then get burned out. Then I end up more frustrated than I was to begin with. My awesome friend Suziepetunia told me about a book that might help me. It is called One Year to an Organized Life. It gives week by week assignments to get you organized in a reasonable amount of time. Baby steps instead of trying to do everything at once. For the first time in my life I feel very optimistic about getting things somewhat under control. I will be meeting with a few of my close friends (including Suziepetunia!) once a month to talk about how things are going and prepare for the next month. It will be great to have a support system. Wish me luck!
For those of you who I know are incredibly organized, please feel free to comment with any tricks that have worked for you. I will keep a link to this post on the side of my blog, and anytime you think of something to add, please do! I love learning from other people what works for them!
