Looking to get organized in the new year? Not only do I have a game plan for home organization, but I also have a sweet deal on my household notebook ebook.

Last month I asked you some deep, dark, personal questions. Over a thousand of you responded and shared some personal secrets, including where your struggles lie. Well, at least in the home management realm. Thank you.

Clutter and organization topped the list of challenges we face. I am right there with ya, sister.

While I would like to think that I’m a fairly organized person, I still have messes. I still forget things. Clutter still breeds like rabbits in my home.

I’ve realized that life happens. That seasons come and go. That sometimes you’re on your game — and sometimes not. Although life is subject to change, however, there are some things that we can do to be ready to face the challenges of “life as Mom” with a smile on our faces — and sometimes even a spring in our steps.

In the coming weeks and months, I’ll be sharing a series on home organization that may be different from what you’ve encountered before. At the same time, it’s my hope that it will encourage you, equip you, and help you know that you are not alone in the campaign against clutter.

We’re going on “zone defense,” people, and we’re going to work a game plan to organize our homes, tackle clutter — and go home with the SuperBowl ring.

Or something like that.

Time to Get in Shape

In the meantime, I encourage you to get your household notebooks ready!

We’re going to be adding different tasks to the to do lists, crossing them off, and moving about our homes and home life, until we’ve got it under control.

Or at least in a position where it’s not controlling us.

To help you get your days organized, I recommend my ebook, Organizing Life as MOM.

  1. Wow, I was just looking at some links to update our/build a new household notebook! I will be definitely be looking forward to this series as I get my home more organized too!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
