Okay, okay I know its Sunday but with a sick family at home this is the first time I was able to sit down at the computer. Kristina @ momontherise.com coined “Plan it out Thursday” and I thought it was a great idea. If you are a mom struggling to get “life” organized then I’m encouraging you to follow along as well.
I know I could use all the help I can get!
I’m really organized in my “work” life, why can’t I do the same at home?
I spend my day organizing schedules and timelines but at home I can’t seem to keep anything together. I have a stake of laundry that needs folding on my couch, dinners that need to be planned for the week, clothes to be washed, rooms to be cleaned and floors to be vacuumed. Add my business ventures to the mix and I am maxed out on time and energy. I feel trapped, stressed and frustrated that I can never get EVERYTHING done that NEEDS to be done.
This post is just one example, I was supposed to get this done on Thursday and its now Sunday. Argh!
Even though I am a few days behind, I’ve already decided to take a few steps forward into a more organized life. I am dividing the daily/weekly household chores so I’m not so overwhelmed on Saturday morning.
Here is my plan this week:
Monday – Clean bathroom entirely & grocery shopping
Tuesday – Vacuum and Sweep condo
Wednesday – Laundry (kids clothes)
Thursday – Clean bathroom
Friday – Vacuum and Sweep condo
Saturday – Open Day
Sunday – Laundry (all clothes) & Plan weekly meals
Rules: All dishes will be washed the night before.
