I ♥ Organization

I know, I know.... just another blogger claiming they want to get organized in 2013. WRONG! I mean, I do want that for my life, but it's been an ongoing process. Last fall I started with a few minor organization projects and it's amazing how good you feel when you declutter a space. Jared and I donated at least 5 bags full of clothes, shoes and coats to charity a few months ago and I honestly can't wait until we can drop off more!

It's easy to get overwhelmed of ALL the things that need updated and/or organized in your house, so when I found this 52-week organized home 'challenge' I knew I wanted to try it!

I shared this with Carolyn and she's giving it a shot too. We both agreed that SOME of these things won't take more than 15 minutes, and some of them don't even apply to us. (Um, storing china, crystal and silver?! Pretty sure I don't own any of those things!) But it's a GREAT list that I'm happy someone else made instead of me. It will definitely keep you on track, and of course you can skip around to different projects on different weeks, but my goal is to check off all the ones that apply.

It's no secret that just the site of containers or any form of organization makes me happy---like, almost hyperventilate in The Container Store type of happy--- so this challenge is perfect! Anyone else thinking of giving this a try?!

52 Week Organized Home Challenge

PS- Happy FREAKING Friday everyone!!!! :)

  4. i might have to take on a few of those weeks of organization. we still have so much crap that needs to be organization / donated / throw away!!

    i can't be in the container store for more than a few minutes or i end up spending wayyyy too much money! that store is dangerous!

  6. Gahh, this makes me want to hug you! You know I LOVE being organized too... OCD much?! But whatever, I LOVE this list and I'm totally going to do it too! Actually, one of the things I did on Tuesday was clean off my counters and get rid of the clutter... well, actually I was just making room for my new wine rack, but still, I got rid of stuff that sits there that I NEVER use! I need to keep this list somewhere I'll see it often!

  7. This really is a great list! I love organization myself, and try to keep my stuff pretty neat and clean. This would be a great help though! I might give it a shot, at least partially :)

  16. Good luck!! I worked on this a bit last year (as in, I read them all at once and took what applied to me) and I think it helped. I have to get back to it though, I let my kitchen and bedroom get out of control again.

  22. I saw this here last week but didn't have the chance to comment. This is a GREAT idea!! I'm adding this to my list of goals for 2013. I needed a way to break down the organization that needs to happen in my home and this is just the answer.
