Lets Get Organized!

The glorious days of summer have come to an end here, and I need to get super organized, and out of my lazy summer non-existing schedule. We talked about schedules before, and with fall here its the perfect time to get organized! Recently I found a fabulous message board
with tons of great people & very insightful homekeeping ideas. I thought I might play along(OK Work) with their "October Deep Cleaning & Decluttering" week! Also: to make your own fabulous homeade cleaning products and great recipes check out Sylvias blog! I will keep you updated with my personal home progress, and I cant wait to get down & dirty and really deal with this tiny house before Christmas arrives and more "Stuff" comes into the house. This year our Christmas will be super downsized, which I want anyway, and more meaningful, and relaxed. I will be on a mission to stick to that. With my husbands new job, and all his training we will have no choice, so its the perfect time to get "ReaL". Each year I pare down a little more & little more with the gifts, and decorations. A few years ago I decided I would only give handmade gifts, for Christmas but that flopped when i had no time to make any goodies for the shop! So if you want to share you favorite suggestions for having "A True & Simple Christmas" It would be most interested!

Oh yes, and I will be wearing one of these vintage aprons while I clean, just for fun! I also couldn't handle my procrastination any further and wrote out a daily schedule to try to follow. Now, I live a bit out of town so days that I have stuff to do, groceries to get or appointments, the schedule is no longer, or i will be trying to jump back into whatever time it is when I get home according to the time. This is super open & loose & I like it that way. Help for me to get stuff done-but no pressure if I fall away for a few hours or days. My plan is to jump back on & keep at it. This should help me be a more productive wife, mother, and crafter I hope!

Daily TimeChart (for days Im home only):

7:00- Wake up, Coffee on, Make kids Breakfast & Pack lunches.

7:15-Have bath, get dressed, get children ready for school.

8:00-Kids off to school,eat breakfast,Pack up any sold items,devotions,.

9:00-Watch my favorite Joyce Meyer Show

9:30-Make daily to do list & start cleaning, sewing, baking, or whatever the plan is for the day and figure out whats for dinner(I love my crock pot-throw everything in and leave for the rest of the day!).

12:00-Force myself to take lunch break, and baby naptime.

12:30 Back to daily do list(Savoring naptime)

2:00- Free time to put the house back together before all kids come home,etsy uploads &computer time.

3:00- Meet daughter at bus stop/ kids home school

3:30- Homework

4:00- Get dinner organized

5:00-Dinner time as family(Yes, They will be forced to eat together all at one table!Yeah!)

6:00- clean up dinner, bath kids, stories

7:00 Bedtime!- All my free time after that to do whatever I want!Yippee!

Have some good suggestions? Please let me know if you have a schedule for yourself, and home, I'm totally open to new ideas. I must go-my husbands coming home tonight from 2 weeks away and i want to make those favorite cookies!(Recipe below)

I bought this book last Christmas and read it through the season determining to take some advice from it for this year. It has many lovely ideas for getting away from the commercial aspects of Christmas, helping families come closer together. I have been making gifts for people through the year, though as you say, it does cut down on time for making other things. The book is "Unplug the Christmas Machine", a complete guide to putting love and joy back into the season. I got mine from Amazon.

Thanks for the wonderful link, I'll be sure to check it out.

With four little ones, two doggies, one hubby, and all that comes with it I could use a little kick in the rear to get more organized!

Good luck with your schedule!

WoW! you are so organized with your routine DOWN. How do you do that? I hope your husband enjoyed his cookies and I'm sure he got more than that if all the children are in bed at 7pm. It's been a while since I have been able to visit with you on your blog so it's good to see you're getting so much done and having some fun doing it, beautiful blog.

I'm getting ready to have a new schedule because I'm leaving a retail job and venturing into the world of "self-employment." I'll be watching your space for great organizational ideas. :)

I've missed all my beautiful blogs...and yours is in the top!

I have a similar schedule as well, but yours is better. My kids go to bed at 8:00 and the two year old insists on waking up at 5:30!

Cute coupon/card holders. Love the cupcake one.
