In a new year we all want more organization am I right? I feel like the end of December and early January each year I get the urge to clean all the things and do a complete overhaul of our house. I also really like to implement more efficient cleaning and organization routines. Today I want to share 4 ways to get organized and stay organized throughout the year.
4 Ways To Get Organized
Have a laundry plan: So I don’t know if other people do this, but we have always had designated days we do laundry. We do our laundry on Wednesdays and Sundays. We do Liam’s nightly. Just because Liam’s clothes tend to pile up a bit faster, it’s easier to do it each night. What’s also great about this is that it gets us both involved in household chores. I always do our laundry and Andrew takes care of Liam’s. Of course if one of us needs help or has a lot of other stuff to do, the other pitches in. We have ALWAYS been a Tide family. Honestly since I was a little girl, it’s all my family used. Currently the Tide HE 100 oz. Liquid is on Rollback at Walmart for $10.77 (regularly $11.97). Combine that with the $2 brandSAVER coupon available through 1/13/18 for a final price of only $8.77, or less than 9 cents per ounce! So you are really getting a great deal. If you’re a mom like me, you not only love a great deal, but you’re doing laundry so much that saving on detergent is HELPFUL! The brandSAVER coupon can be found in your 12/31 Sunday paper or online at https://www.pgeveryday.com/. The coupon is only available for in-store purchases through 1/13/18.
Assign Jobs: This is actually something that can be done with EVERY member of the family. Truthfully there are jobs kids can do as young as toddler age. For example, putting their toys away. Or putting their laundry into a laundry basket to get them used to the task. This is something we plan to implement once Liam is old enough. Beyond that Andrew and I have certain “jobs” we prefer to do. It really helps if everyone has something to do and contributes.
Don’t let it get out of hand: I feel like if you let things like laundry pile up you can be sitting with nine loads of laundry to do, fold, and put away. If you do them a few times a week or like we do Liam’s nightly it really doesn’t pile up. The same for organization. If you wait to organize your fridge or pantry for a super long time they get out of control!
Tidy Up Daily: Before bed every night I hang up jackets, put away toys in their baskets, wipe down counters, start the dishwasher, etc. It takes all of 20 minutes and our house never feels messy. This is something I highly suggest because it never makes me feel like I’m living in chaos.
These 4 ways to get organized will really improve your life and make you feel a little less out of sorts. Is there anything you would add to this?
