Do you have a million ideas swirling around your head at any given time? Do you tell yourself you'll remember that thing you need to do, but then forget before the day is even over? Do you see that same little imperfection or incomplete project every time you walk into the room but never seem to find the time to get it taken care of? If you answered yes to even one of these questions, I'm here with a simple idea to help!
Track your home projects room by room. It's so simple it's hard to believe it would work, but just give it a try.
If you go the Evernote route like I did, create a notebook titled Home Projects and then create a note for each room/area. Insert a checklist so that when you are done, you can simply click to check the item off!
Once you have all of the to do's out of your head and into your notebook, you will waste less of your time trying to remember what you wanted to do and can spend more time getting things done! (Getting things out of your head is great for more than just home projects - read a Brain Dump How -To for more info!)
This time next week will be a brand new year, so this is a great time to gather up all of the tasks and projects you want to get done around the house so you can be productive in 2021!
Many around the world are hunkered down at home to help slow the spread of COIVD-19. I think this is the perfect time to get some projects done at home! During times of uncertainty, it's easy to become anxious and overwhelmed about the things we can't control. Small, achievable projects can give us a way to keep our minds off of the sometimes scary reality and also regain some control in our lives. Many of you may be off work or working from home for the next 14 days, so read on for 14 organizing projects you can get done in one day or less!
1. Switch your wardrobe from Winter to Spring
At least the timing is about right for putting away winter clothes and getting out your Spring/Summer wardrobe. Make sure to donate winter items you didn't wear this year and try on the Spring/Summer items to make sure they fit. Don't waste space with things that no longer fit or you no longer love! For more ideas read, The Seasonal Switch post!
2. Clean out and organize your medicine cabinet
This is a great time to think about what medicines in your cabinet may be out of date and determine which ones you are out of. Make sure to clean the shelves and any organizing containers thoroughly. You may be able to use items from around the house to combine like items. Find some low-cost organizing ideas in the post, 5 Dollar Store Ideas for Your Medicine Cabinet.
3. Organize your junk drawer
Everybody has one and without occasional attention, the junk drawer can get out of control! You may store some essentials in this drawer like batteries, flashlights, and hand sanitizer, so make sure you add any items you need to replenish to your shopping list.
