31 Days of Home Organization- Day One


Welcome to day one of 31 Days of Home Organization.  I am joining The Nester again for the series this year.  I participated last year with 31 Days of Hospitality.  Writing for 31 days in a row is challenging and writing on the same subject for those 31 days is even more so.  One thing I learned last year is to plan ahead and figure out what you're going to write each day.  Just like making a monthly meal plan makes dinnertime easier, planning your posts makes blogging easier.  So this year there should be no midnight posts for me.

Organizing our homes can really make our lives run smoothly.  We're all busy with families, laundry, cooking, shopping, carpools, appointments, working and many other things.  Flying by the seat of your pants over a long term is just downright stressful for everyone.  Each day I'll give you tips and tricks to organize things in your home.  Some will be super quick & some will take a while but by Halloween you and I will be more organized than we ever have been.

Join me tomorrow as I put together a Home Organization Notebook.  This one thing will change your life.  Trust me.

Awesome! I'm also doing a 31 day series: 31 Days to Building a Cleaning Routine.

I'm excited to read yours. I have started following your blog by email! Good luck!

I am in! Ever since getting back from vacation last weekend, I have been on a cleaning, organizing, decluttering spree. I have a ton more I can do so this is perfect timing!

What a fantastic idea for a blog series! I always get hit by the nesting bug in the Fall. I can't wait to see your organizing ideas! Thanks so much for sharing them.

Debra, first of all, thank you so much for visiting me at Thinking About Home and leaving your kind comment. I love that you did a series on hospitality last year...but I don't dare take a peek at it yet. I need for my ideas to be fresh from the brain until I get the bulk of my writing done. I promise to come and read the whole series by November!

As for your topic for this year...oh, I am very interested in that! I am always looking for new ways to keep my house (and myself!) organized. I'll be back to visit. :)
