Home Organization 101: A 14 Week program to get your home organized- this is a great tool that I found on www.abowlfulloflemons.blogspot.com It goes through each room of your house, one a week, for 14 weeks. You clear away clutter and work on organization. There's a checklist for each week, instructions for cleaning that space and also a Cleaning Schedule with daily/weekly/monthly/semi-annually and annually chores. I have a stack of about 6 different charts that I printed along with this. There are no websites listed but I believe that I got them all from the same site.
I have been working on getting our house in order but needed it done much more quickly than 14 weeks. I joined a group on Facebook called 40 Bags in 40 Days that has been a great motivation for me to clear my clutter and organize my home. I've been working for about 3 weeks and have made great progress. Now I've got to maintain it and keep pressing forward to finish the house. We have way too much stuff and need to clear out about half of it!!!
Flylady.com This is one I've gone back and forth with for years. It worked great before kids, decent after kids, I haven't found a way to make it work with homeschooling though. It's been a few years since I've tried so once I have gotten our house settled from moving rooms around, I may give it another go.
She has detailed cleaning lists for each room of your house and sends daily emails (this part drives me crazy) to encourage you to do the chore for that day. She starts out with BabySteps to help you set up a routine and make it a habit. It really is a great site and she has some really good tips. It just seems hard to keep up with when you homeschool. I find myself having to make the decision each day as to what needs more attention that day, school or house. Her plan doesn't allow for skipping days though she does say just jump in right where you are that you are not behind.
Like I said, I do want to try it again once we've finished our massive decluttering projects and moving the rooms around to accomodate the baby.
Alright, that's it! The desk is cleaned off. Everything is filed away where it belongs. I can see the surface again!!! I hope that you are able to use some of the things that I have shared. If you find great resources, please share them!!!
