Get back on track with your organizational strategies!! Post #1

The holiday season can be crazy and stressful. So it’s important to be prepared to reorganize your life. Once you’re back to your regular routine, which I must say, is more difficult to take the time to organize the post-holiday craziness that’s been left thrown around your house. So, before the real world gets in the way, try organizing your post-holiday schedule. Sounds overwhelming? YES I know…but I have some advice from, The Crafting Chicks. Try some of the following tips to help you make your way through the post-holiday crunch.

Here is tip #1!

1. Scheduling Events
Don’t let the first few events of the New Year catch you off-guard. Keep your family calendar updated and, even more importantly, maintain updates in your personal planner as you receive notice of future engagements. By keeping your planner in your purse or near you at all times, you’ll be able to pencil in new events without double-booking or getting too overwhelmed. You can easily find a small planner that’s well suited to your needs at an office supply or local craft store, and November and December are great months to find planners for the New Year. To supplement your organized schedule, try using sticky notes in places that will get your attention at the appropriate times. For example, if you know you have to get to a PTA meeting right after dinner on Tuesday, put a sticky note reminder on the refrigerator or above the sink to remind you while you make and clean up the evening meal.

Come back on Wednesday for tip #2!
