15 minutes a day to a more organized home!

The new year is here and most of us would love to start out the year organized, but that cannot usually be accomplished in one fell swoop.  I did spend the week de cluttering and ended up donating 2 VAN LOADS of stuff!!!  But can I say all my cupboards are spic and span and every drawer is perfectly organized?  NO unfortunately! So as I mentioned in my last post I am going to do the "Clean home clean heart challenge".  I plan on staring on Monday, but in the meantime I will be using my old standby 15 minute trick.  You start at the front door and find the closest cupboard or closet to that door and spend 15 minutes a day organizing and cleaning out that space.  You continue every day until that space is organized and then you move clockwise around the house hitting every cupboard, messy spot, drawer, and closet till your whole whole house has been hit.  Then you start over.  You are also less apt to leave little messes when you know you are going to have to spend  your 15 minutes a day redoing what you just did.

I will be spending the next four weeks blogging about organization and planning for your home, your finances, your health and fitness!  Staring a new year is a great time for a fresh start.  A chance to believe that this WILL be the year your home, finances, and health become priorities that get planned into the schedule!  Let me know if you are doing the 52 day "Clean home, Clean Heart Challenge"!
