Zone Defense: Travel & Transportation
Posted By Jessica Fisher On June 16, 2012 @ 1:47 am In Homekeeping,Travel | 5 Comments
On Zone Defense , we’re tackling clutter and working to put in place a game plan for home organization. This month our zone to hone in on is Travel and Transportation.
Six months ago we started a game plan to organize our homes . Rather than tackle clutter and chaos in one fell swoop, we are approaching it by zones: physical zones as well as activity zones. We started looking at Personal Space . If Mama ain’t happy, she can’t help other folks be happy.
This month we’re addressing Travel and Transportation zones. Depending on how your family gets around this may look different in your home than it does in mine. But, here are my thoughts.
Summertime lends itself to travel, vacations, and daytrips. We’re hauling out daypacks, suitcases, and other travel paraphernalia. We’re driving around a lot; whether it’s trips to the pool or cross-country adventures, our vehicles see regular use — even in the absence of the morning school carpool.
Having your garage, vehicles, and travel and camping equipment organized and in good order will make your summer so much more enjoyable. You’ll want to go places. You’ll want to camp out. You’ll want to get packing.
Because it’s easy to do.
This month we’re going to zero in on the areas of your home that effect your travel and transportation habits.
Consider these questions:
These questions are not designed to make you feel guilty that you never go camping. Some people don’t like to camp! That’s totally fine.
But, if you like to camp, you might go more often if you were more organized. We do things that are easy.
Make the things that you want to do easier to do!
These questions are just a starting point to help you think through the travel activities that your family enjoys and to get yourself tooled up to make it easier and better for all of you.
