Reorganize 2011: The List

Today I made a list of everything I want to get done under my New Year's Resolution to reorganize the house. It is quite a list. I think that if you are going to tackle the whole house it helps to break it down into rooms. My tip is to be very specific with your line items so there is something to cross off after you complete a task. Saying clean out clothes might take a few days, so I break it down to drawers and closet. This means if I am feeling really motivated I can tackle the whole closet and If I am feeling lazy I can do a few drawers and still get to cross something off the list.

So this is going to be my nap time adventure for the next 2 months. Hopefully I get to cross a few things off this weekend, like taking down the tree. But I don't plan on cleaning during every nap time, I need time to be crafty too :)

I'll post some before and afters and give you some tips that I learned from the clutter shark (my mom) along the way.

Sounds like a plan!!! I love the "don't sabotage future Kris" one... Here are my two: Tif and I will clean 15 minutes a piece every day... we are on day 7 and our house has never been so clean AND we have actually dusted. The other one is to get in a habit of going 20,000 steps a day. I am at 15k now and running more in the morning and walking during lunch should get me there!

Great list! Good luck with getting it all done in time. It does help to write it all down. It seems as if everyone wants to declutter and organize, what is up with that? I am putting my plan in motion next week, this week was just trying to get through the sadness of getting back to work and having a whole yr until Christmas ;(
