Getting organized is one of the most popular resolutions as we start a new year. I am one of those people. I proclaim that I will be an organized guru with OCD and transform my home into a page from Architectural Digest…only without the expensive furniture and the million dollar home where it resides. No…I will be the person who has a place for everything and everything will be in its place. Then reality kicks in. Where do I start?
As I begin to declutter, I notice towels that need to be put away. As I take them to the basket where they are supposed to be, I see the first aid items are in the basket so now I need to put that away first. I set the towels down and move the first aid items to the cabinet. Oh but the cabinet is a mess. So I sit down and take everything out of the cabinet to reorganize and restock the first aid stuff. Whew! Now I can put the towels back in the basket and get back to decluttering. But first another distraction. Then another. And another. Its called life.
So understanding that I dont have it all together and could use some help, I turn to one of my favorite resources. Pinterest! I pinned something to my Printables board that I found so helpful, I wanted to share. Simply Stacie has compiled a list of 29 printables that can help you get organized in this new year. From meal planning and fitness, to debt reduction and budgeting, its all there. She even has measurement equivalents and metric conversion printables you can keep in your kitchen for those recipes you have been wanting to try! I encourage you to check it out and see what sparks your interest. If you are like me, you will want to save them all!
