Organizing…Everything!

by ReStockIt.com

I have been very open in my obsession with organizing. I’ve blogged many times about it, and I wonder sometimes if I’m not getting worse. Regardless, my life is not complete if I don’t organize. I feel like something is missing, like I’ve left the stove on or something. The holidays are no different.  I organize them down to the nth degree.

I also put together my new household notebook in December as well. Yes, we live in a digital age, and I do have spreadsheets and planners and budgets saved to the computer and my calendar, but I grew up when paper was king and the chief form of communication. Plus I really like a cute 3-ring binder. It’s just easier to grab and jot a note.

I divide my binder into sections, using full-sheet tabbed dividers, and incorporate things like Household Chores, Food, Schedules, etc. That way not only I know what I’m doing, but my husband knows as well. I’ve tried putting dates and to-do’s in his phone calendar, but I don’t think he pays much attention to it. His phone usage consists of texting, IMDB searches, and video games.

I also have a pencil pouch, so that I can keep different colored pens and highlighters in there, because I have to make organizing fun, or else it doesn’t get done. And I need to be organized. Otherwise I’m like a dog, easily distracted by something shiny. And it’s not as hard as it sounds to keep a household notebook. You can keep a small one, or carry around a big one. I also keep sticky notes with me, and at the end of the night, just before bed, I jot everything down into the binder that I’ve written on the sticky notes! Simple, organized, and keeps my sanity!
