I'm going to break today's post into two different parts, organization and spring cleaning. A fun fact about me is that I'm a way better organizer than I am a cleaner.
By nature, as a virgo, I thrive best when organized. #truevirgo
Some of my favorite ways to stay organized are by using checklists and my weekly planner. I use lists at work and home. I get a bit of enjoyment out of crossing something off of that list. It is almost like a sense of accomplishment.
I have a notebook that I use for work to track daily tasks and assignments. I use the "Notes" feature on my iPhone to track lists for packing and lists for the grocery store or Target.
This is my list from when we went away for Spring Break, you can see that everything was "x" because it was packed - not sure what happened to the cup, lol. I need to delete this list.
I also could not live without my weekly planner. I love it, and use it daily. With a busy schedule, it keeps me organized. Here is a link to a similar Weekly Appointment calendar that I found on Amazon.
In last year's series "Workin' It Wednesday," I blogged about Spring Cleaning and I plan to re-tackle some of the same areas again. I'm almost embarrassed to share that some of those areas look the same way that they did last year. I guess that's why we have spring cleaning, right?!
I almost feel like in this season of our lives, my house will always feel a little messy. With a 2 and 4-year-old who are learning the principles of cleaning up after themselves, sometimes momma just gets tired of always picking up after them. I love the meme I found below.
This year, the major spring cleaning project I want to tackle are my kids toys! We are in desperate need of purging and organizing, rather than cleaning. My kids have so many toys that they don't play with, it's time to get those out of the house! I am so looking forward to day's link up to get some ideas on this. How do you get your kids to part with their toys?? Would love to know your tips!!
