Organizing is my jam! My life is run by lists, my planner, time management and order! However, I totally get when people tell me they are the opposite! I didn’t just become this way over night! With each child, I’ve learned how to adjust things to work smoother for our family, but it did take lots of trial and errors! I love a good challenge, so when people tell me they are just drowning in disorder… I come to the rescue!
After having lots of requests for help to become organized I decided to do a light and fun “Cut the clutter Challenge” on facebook! The response was amazing! I quickly put together a 5 day event where I would post a challenge each day that would take 30 minutes or less to complete. Perfect for the busy lady! Here was challenge #1:
“We are going to cut the clutter from our PURSE!!! Get rid of the globs of crumpled receipts, 10 pens that don’t work, pile of biz cards, toys, crumbs, empty gum packages, and everything else that might be hiding in there! Our purse is one thing we use daily, yet can get to the point where it’s like sticking your hand into a mystery box! Not after today! Clean that baby out! Post before/after pics to show you’ve completed it! (Mama’s, you can replace purse with diaper bag if you want!! No purse… clean out your wallet! Ambitious… do them all!!) ”
As I’ve said before, organizing doesn’t happen over night! It is a process that takes a lot of dedication and persistence! Starting with some smaller tasks will be easy to complete, which will ultimately help you feel easier about completing larger tasks in the future!
If you’d like to follow along, please be sure to follow my blog and post your results below! I’d love to cheer you on! I have also started a Facebook group to continue to assist those that need some organization, order, planning or even just the accountability aspect! Please feel free to join us!
