Spring Organization Resources
The only way to stay on top of my cupcake, baseball, fitness, blogging, travel and life adventures is to be super organized! Some might in fact call me OCD and I’m okay with that, because all of the systems in my life get the job done! Today I wanted to share with you a few of the organizational resources that I have found to be particularly helpful, and I hope they help you too.
#1 – Cleaning Checklist – I would love to think I know every nuance of keeping the house clean but the truth is that every time I set out to clean, I forget something (like cleaning the ceiling fan blades) so I am all about having a list to stay on task.
#2 – Weekly Outfit Planning – I don’t use the same container as this post recommends using with kids, but I have implemented the idea behind the system. If I spend 15 minutes on Sunday night planning out my outfits for the week then I never have to rush around in the morning trying to pick out something to wear or panic because I realize I forget to wash the sweater I needed. Instead it’s all ready to go at the beginning of the week!
#3 – Desktop Organization – This one might not sound very important, but I have found that when my computer desktop is organized it makes it a lot easier to find documents and information. And when it’s easier to find those things, I am more efficient!
#4 – Organizing Your Spices – This just might be the best change I’ve made to my kitchen!
#5 – Meal Planning – I am all about meal planning each week so that you know what’s for dinner every night and you can head home from work confident that all of the ingredients are already at home and you just need to whip up dinner!
What is one area of your life that you wish was more organized?!?
I have always planned out my outfits on Sunday night! Even in high school – I had a little notebook that I used to keep track of them…because wearing the same outfit 2 weeks in a row, high school no-no. My how times have changed 🙂 These days I would love to get a better system in place for the bills & mail piles.
I had a notebook just like that when I was teaching because if I wore an outfit 2 weeks in a row my students would comment and I didn’t want that! I should add how to organize mail to a future organizational post because I actually do that pretty well
too funny! Mine just told me I dressed like a teacher…when I was wearing jeans and a t-shirt on Friday. And I would love to read a mail organization post!! It’s always been my downfall 🙂

Thanks for sharing these resources! I aspire to this level of having all my ducks in a row. Outfit planning? If only! lol
Great tips. It would definitely make my life easier if I was to plan out my outfits for the week instead of staring confusedly at my closet each morning feeling like I have nothing to wear.
I hate that feeling of staring at the closet each morning thinking there is nothing to wear!

I make my kids get two days of clothes ready at a time, just in case we forget one night, there will be an extra. I need to do it myself too. There are weeks when I realize that I’ve worn brown outfits three days in a row. I hate that!
That’s a great idea to have your kids do two days in a row!
Thank you for posting this! The spring cleaning checklist is just what I was looking for!
You’re welcome…glad it’s helpful!
