If you are new to 52 Weeks of Organizing, catch up here!
I’ve heard from many people that they really enjoy using the 52 Week Organizing Checklist each week to keep them on track. I’m so glad and I’m thrilled it’s making life a little bit easier for you.
If you like that idea though you might also be interested in a new organizing planner that just hit bookstores this month. It’s called Totally Together: Shortcuts to an Organized Lifeby Stephanie O’Dea. As many of you know, Stephanie is the best selling author of the More Make It Fast, Cook It Slow cookbooks. Totally Together is Stephanie’s third book and it was written to help you get your house in complete order in just minutes a day.
While this book has many awesome organizing tips and tricks scattered throughout what I think you’ll find most helpful are the weekly journal/planning pages for each week of the year. Here’s what each two page weekly layout looks like to give you a better idea.
On the left you’ve got her 7 Daily T0-Dos checklist plus a weekly chores checklist. On the right side you’ve got calendar squares to assist you further with tracking your organizing goals. Here’s a closer look.
Now you know I’m a list girl, I’ve written about it before here. If you want to eliminate feelings of overwhelm and scattered head, then it needs to get out of your head and down on paper. Brain dump! That’s why I thought this book was so smart. It doesn’t do the work for you but it will keep you in check with what needs to be done and when.
Anyway I thought this was a great resource and wanted to share it with you in case you were needing a little extra motivation in your 52 weeks journey. As I find more resources I’ll share those with you as well.
