30 Days to an Organized Life
December 29, 2013 by Stephanie O'Dea
In my household shortcut planning guide, Totally Together: Shortcuts to an Organized Life, I’ve tried to break down all of the daily, weekly, and monthly THINGS that float around in our heads into one day-planner/book: Call your mother. Schedule a hair cut. Get the house painted. Vacuum under the couch cushions. Drink more water. Perform a self-breast exam.
But sometimes you need a 30-day jumpstart in order to feel like you are really being productive, and sometimes the thought of adhering to something for a full year is absolutely daunting.
I know. I get it.
and it’s okay.
So here you go!! This is a 30-day jump start checklist to get your home and family life in order —- not everything is listed, but enough things are here that you can go from disarray to company-clean in only 30 days. You don’t need to do all 30 days in order if you don’t want to, and you don’t need to do all 30 days all within a month. If it takes you 45 or 60 days to get through this checklist, whatever.
No big deal.
This is YOUR house and YOUR family. Do what works for you.
I’ve tried to hyperlink the above graphic with posts explaining what the different tasks are. It didn’t work. So here are all the past articles that have been underlined above.
P.R.O.M (purge, remove, organize, maintain)
