Last year, I got One Year to an Organized Life by Regina Leeds as a requested Christmas gift. It has handy week by week activities to organize one's house and life. I made it to the second week. Well, I've dusted off the book and am trying again, together with the Cleaning Grand Plan and Real Simple'e Daily Quick Cleaning Checklist. Something is bound to stick.
Anyway, this week's task for both the cleaning grand plan and Organized Life is to ponder the coming activities. Leeds argues for regular journaling to document the process. So, this blog is my organizing journal.
I've set up my cleaning notebook and this blog and I'm about to get started on my Winter meal plan notebook. Who knows if any of this will stick, but I certainly have more time than last year, now that my dissertation is over, and that will help.
