So when i read about the organised house wifes challenge i thought this was just the push i needed.
I'm a little bit behind in the program and only just signed up yesterday. The program started today but i'm still working through the pre-challenge tasks. I really couldn't have picked a worse week to start this kind of challenge as i have a very busy week of work ahead of me. But i'll do my best to do a bit each day and play a bit of catchup next week.
So today i started on the pre-challenge tasks.
Task 1 - organise binder for printouts and lists - in progress
Task 2 - Put together a cleaning kit - I already have my cleaners and cloths all stored together. I'm just going to put them together in a bucket to make them more portable.
Task 3 and 4 were all about routines -morning and evening. I have to be honest, the idea of writing down a set routine makes me feel stressed. Before i had my son i was an intense planner, having every step of my day organised. Needless to say a small baby doesn't care about your plans and i found myself stressed and miserable trying to keep up my old pace. So i dropped the strict, set routines. I still have a routine but i keep it in my head, flexible and ever changing. It makes me feel better to work that way so that's what i'll keep doing.
Task 5 - Write a goals list - so here it is using the organised housewife template.
Also she recommends some sorting boxes for -
- keeping ( but not sure where to put it yet)
Good idea, tomorrow i'm going to dig around the shed for a few boxes and then i'll be ready to start. Wish me luck! and a cleaner house!
