Tips for Getting Organized

Getting organized then staying organized is a challenge for many moms. As a mom you are your own organizer; you do not have lead management software program that will organize your life or your kids for you. As a mother you organize the food, and the house, and the kids, and the appointments, and the kids stuff, and the schoolwork, and the laundry, and so much more.
With all the things you have to do it can become hectic and stressful to try and keep everything in order and it can be even harder to stay organized as you go throughout your day. There are many different books and websites and programs you can buy that are meant to help you get organized but those can take time and money. In order to get organized and stay organized without reading a long book or buying a program that will walk you through step by step you can look for quick tips and tricks that will help you out each day.
Becoming organized is a process; it doesn’t just happen in one day. Here are some tips and tricks that can help you get started on your organizing process:
·         Preparing for each day the night before. This may sound silly but it really does work. If you put out the kids clothes, get everything ready in the fridge to make lunches, and set everything you need for the next day on the counter you will feel prepared and ready to go in the morning.

·         Write it down. As a mom, you have a lot of things to remember. You have to pick kids up and drop them off at certain times and you have to remember dentist and doctor appointments.  You also have to remember play dates, birthday parties, etc. Being a mom means you are in charge of remembering everything so write it down.

·         Organize the stuff. No matter how hard you try the house will probably not stay clean for very long; however, you can help it to stay de-cluttered longer by picking a box or stair for each child. As you go around the house picking things up you can put all of the shoes, books, clothes, toys and other things each child’s box or on his or her designated stair. At the end of the day everyone takes their box or pile of things and takes it to their rooms.

These are just a few tips but becoming organized can mean taking one tip a day and seeing how it works for you. As you try each tip and it works, keep using it, if it doesn’t work, try a new one.
