I’ve pretty much struggled with organization my whole life. Lately, I’ve discovered that I do much better with a schedule and a routine. With a baby and a toddler, routine is so important in keeping my family running smoothly.
Two or three weeks ago, during a late night feeding, I found this link on Pinterest:
I love this, and I got started immediately. You’re supposed to take one habit at a time and do it daily so you can properly work on the habit. I started from the top with making your bed. I used to do this before, but fell out of the habit. It was a great reminder, and I can’t tell you how much better I feel with a well-made bed. It makes me feel more organized and like my house is a bit tidier. It’s also nice to fall into late at night when I’m totally exhausted.
The next thing on the list is to take your vitamins/medicine at the same time every day. I do that anyway… I ended up putting my prenatal vitamins by the breakfast foods because I could never remember to take them. So now, every time I eat breakfast I take my vitamins.
Next was to eat breakfast every day. Again, I always do that anyway. I’m breastfeeding so after sleeping I’m pretty much Starving Marvin anyway.
The thing I’m adding this week is to unload the dishwasher every morning so we always have dishes available. I’m going to start doing this tomorrow.
I think since I’m adding each new habit on Saturdays I’m going to do a recap of how it’s going Fridays.
What do you do to stay organized?
