Let me ask you something. are you able to work out what in your life is urgent vs important?
Are you constantly finding you come to the end of your day only to see that you haven’t got anything done that you actually wanted to do?
Have you spent all day meeting demands that have cropped up, and that weren’t the way you planned to spend your time?
Thats no way to live – you end up always chasing your plans, being forever behind, and never quite reaching your goals.
I was recently asked on my Facebook page a great question by a reader – and that was whether a maybe pile was OK to have when decluttering your home.
When I wrote the post about how to declutter your home, and gave you the free category printables so that it made sorting your stuff that bit easier, you may have noticed that there was no category for “maybe”, “undecided” or “miscellaneous”.
That was for a good reason.
3 months in now – week 12 and I hope you’re still going strong.
This week I have been looking at taking stock in my own home. Taking a look at the overview in our lives and homes every so often is so important.
We all fall foul of taking on too much at times, and nothing says this more than when it comes to the household chores.
More often than not, unless you have systems in place to share the load a little, it can all come down to you – and that’s not fun for anyone.
This post aims to answer the question of how you can share household chores out a little – exploring the different ways to do it – and I have managed to fit these into the apt acronym S.H.A.R.E as well – oooh I love it when a plan comes together!
Its all too easy in todays fast paced world to let family time slip.
Everyone has their own busy schedules, even the little ones seem to have something every day! its no wonder that family time can end up at the bottom of the list.
Here are a few simple ideas that you can implement in your own family to ensure you get as much family time as possible – hope they help!
Can you believe we are in week 11! I simply don’t know where this year is going – we are already over a quarter of the way through – how time flies!
Seriously though, if you are like me and wondering where time goes, just think how quickly the year will have gone and what you could do with the time if you really focus your energies on all these small tasks.
I love to get inspiration and ideas for my home and life from various books and magazines, and having been a reader of Getting Organized magazine for a few years now, I was absolutely delighted when I was asked to appear in the recently released Spring edition!
Do you ever take the time to have a go at taking stock of things in your life? Sometimes, however organised we are, things can overwhelm us, and taking stock is whats needed to get back to a sense of normality as quickly as possible.
Now we are at week ten, I’d love to know how you’re getting on – have you found it easy, or is it hard to get an extra task into your daily routine?
As usual, I won’t keep you in suspense any longer! – here are all the details of the daily tasks for this week (simply click on each day of the week to be taken to the details of the task) – Good luck x
I love seeing other peoples attitudes towards organising, and what better way than to showcase some of my favourite quotations on the subject!
These are some of the words that can help put perspective on things, and I hope you find at least one here that you can relate to.
