Organize It Week 1: Write It Down!
Your first week on the road to organization
Is mail taking over your kitchen table? Have baby books and toys taken over your living room? How do you tackle sink pile-ups in the bathroom? Do your children need to be trained in the art of tossing socks in the laundry basket instead of to the side of the basket? By the end of six weeks, you and your family will have a system in place that works.
First, you’ll learn how to declutter and get rid of what you don’t need. Once you’re more streamlined, you’ll set up a method for your daily-use items that works best for you and your family.
Your Clean Green Home Notebook
This week, you’ll use your Clean Green Home Notebook to figure out which areas need most help.
- Which five areas of your home are the most disorganized?
- Why do you think are they difficult to keep tidy?
- What struggles have you had keeping these areas in order?
It’s time to get your thoughts down on paper, and think about how to focus on the goals that matter to you.
Food for Thought
“As parents, I really think one of our main jobs is to create a calm, attractive environment for our children. Organizing is a huge part of that. Children need that calm, because they create chaos.” –Marilyn Paul, author of It’s Hard to Make a Difference When You Can’t Find Your Keys
