All these delayed boxes this month have left me time to work on other projects around here. Including getting organized! Some things I have plans and ideas for, but others? I don’t know where to even begin and am hoping to get some help from some of you all! Here’s what I’m planning:
~Cleaning Out the Closets: I still haven’t gotten together a bag for thredUP, but that’s #1 on my list here. I am planning to do just a bag of my old stuff for them because I have had the best luck with that. Kid’s clothes wise (and that’s where my real issue is), I am thinking of a Spring Mom2Mom sale. I am hoping that L’s school does one. I’ll instagram a picture of kids clothes I have going on in our spare bedroom. They are taking over my house. It’s insanity. How many bins of clothes can I bring to one of these things? Do people only buy for the next season or would they buy fall stuff too? I mean I will buy a 3T summer shirt for WB now if it’s adorable and on super clearance.
~The Nail Polish: Since B has taken SO long to hang the shelves I bought up, I am now rethinking my organization system. I have a ton of polish and it’s all stored in plastic shoe boxes right now, which is NOT the way to go. It’s all falling out of the boxes and sometimes I just get overwhelmed and don’t even bother painting my nails! But one way or another, this will be corrected.
~Meal Planning: I SUCK at meal planning. I don’t do the cooking (B is the best) so maybe it’s that, I don’t know. But I’d love to hear how some of you meal plan. Do you plan a week in advance? Two weeks? B’s starting back to school on Monday and I’d love to get a plan together to make things easier for everyone.
I do feel more organized (schedule wise) already with my Erin Condren planner. I pretty much have it next to me at all time so I think that helps because I am forced to look at it. I also have been using the Wedding Planner (I use it as a Notebook) I ordered and it’s awesome to have all my notes in ONE notebook instead of the ten million little ones I used to use.
What are your best organizing tips? What are you working on getting organized in 2014? Any tips or tricks on meal planning or organizing in general???
