So often what people associate with “being organized” is having everything nice and neat in piles on the countertop or on closet shelves with everything stored in pretty little boxes. But to me, “being organized” is really all about is the ability to be prepared, to know what you have to accomplish today, this week, this month, and to be able to find the items you need to accomplish the tasks at hand. “Being organized” leads to a state of calm, of knowing that you are in control and on top of what you need to and want to do. And I think that one of the best ways to accomplish this feat of “being organized” is having a set of routines- for yourself, and sometimes for your family, that outlines the steps of what you need to do, and the order in which you need to do them in order to get through a particular part of the day.
Here are some posts that outlines how we create family routines in our own home to help our days run more smoothly:
