June Possible Ideas and Resources

[Back to June Goals page]

  1.  If you have some messy tendencies like I do, you might have to start by working on forming some small daily habits and small goals.  For example, I have set the goal to only work on home organization for 15 minutes each day (week days).  This is progress for me, since it’s been hard to get motivated, and if I know I only have to do 15 minutes, that’s pretty easy.  At the same time, I often gain momentum after I start and end up working for a lot longer than I intended.  Here’s where you can get a copy of my free Monthly Habit Tracker, which usually works great for me when it comes to forming habits.
  2. I like a lot of these ideas by Ann Voskamp on how to Speed Clean to Clean Enough.  She’s got some great ideas for organizational tools and strategies.
  3. I often enjoy the organizing ideas by I Heart Planners. Here are a few that might give you ideas:  Pantry Organizing Ideas for Your Home,  Command Center Inspiration, and How to Organize Your Closet.  It was through scrolling through some of her ideas that I realized why my desk has been a bit of problem (besides my messy tenancies): no drawers!
  4. Eight Mistakes When Organizing Your Home has some good tips, I think.  Now to put them into practice…
  5. My (currently) free e-book Organization on the Home Front is not quite finished, but I’m still making it available to you for test run. This was my attempt to make organizing more fun and doable for me, and I think you’ll enjoy using it.  So, if  you do, feel free to let me know what you think.  And if you’d like to give me some tips for how to make it even better, I’d appreciate them, too!
