Normally I am quite the organized person, however the end of last year was just overwhelming. There is no way to sugar coat it. It got too busy and things pretty much spiraled out of control. I know my family did not appreciate my stress level and my snippiness. Being a very organized person by nature, it stresses me out when things get disorganized. I’m also a visual person, so when it gets cluttered and things get too busy, for me, it is like I can’t see through the forest to see the tree in front of me that needs to be dealt with. It gets overwhelming quickly. I wish that didn’t happen for me because I know so many people who can just see right where they need to go or what they need to do even in the chaos. I admire them.
I know that I need to take some time to get things back in order around my house. It will just help me feel better. I know not everyone is like this and I know that it is a constant battle to stay organized whether you are a naturally organized person or someone who struggles, especially when you have children in your house. You know what I mean, right? 🙂
Today, I’ve put together over 20 great ways that both of us can work to get organized in 2015. A lot of them are ideas I’ve written about in the past. They are ideas that I need to go back to and touch up those areas or come up with a new fresh start because I didn’t keep up with them. The other half of these ideas are new inspiration for both of us. Some ways to add some new organization to your house and life.
Let’s not let being a bit more organized in 2015 be a stressor, but rather lets work to just do a few minutes on a project each week. Progress will be made and we will enjoy that progress. Sounds great to me! I tend to go all in or not at all…which would be why my laundry room is a big fat mess. If I just work 10 minutes a week, I will get it done and it won’t continue to be on my list and adding stress to me every time I do laundry.
Anyway…enough rambling. Here are over 20 great ideas for both of us!
