Organization!

I have to admit that I am quite a bit jealous of people that are all organized and such! I try to get organized, but I think I may need a new system b/c I keep having to reorganize. Hence defeating the purpose of organization = save time!!!

I have decided to try a few new things to help me out.
And here they are:
  •  pick a day (the same day) each week and plan out my meals/groceries for the entire week.{I originally picked Sunday, but is that a good day to grocery shop? with restocking and such}
  • "Clean clean" the house every other Friday, on our date night DAY when the lil monkey goes to the g-parent's house!
  • Do laundry everyday! This is a must or it piles up!!!! 
  • Do dishes everyday!! Same as above, hehe!!
  • Every night before bed straighten up the house (aka toys).
  • Find a place for everything!! Make sure the places are practical!! 
I know it doesn't sound like much, but actually typing it out makes me feel better and on my way to being a bit more organized! I really want to get in the groove of planning meals ahead of time and having certain days that I designate to get things done around the house. I have always been a "go with the flow" kinda gal and that makes for a messy house and usually me pondering at 4:45 pm about what to cook for dinner! If anyone has any tips, please feel free to share :)

On another note, we sure are enjoying some nice warm weather here in GA! However, the pollen is doing a number on me!! Our cars are already green from it all! It is really bad!!! Noah's pediatrician said this is going to be a really bad pollen season!! :( boo!!! So we are going to just load up on some allergy meds and head out anyways :) Noah is LOVING playing ouside!!

I feel exactly the same as you do about my organizational skills :/ I think some people are just more organized naturally, I am not one of them. I do try to give myself a little bit of a break because I do have a 2 year old (and a husband who can sometimes feel like a 2nd child:) I don't want to stress too much on organization and miss out on my baby growing up! As long as everybody's happy I will continue to try to be better, but not worry about it too much :D Oh and I know I say it every time but Noah could not be more cute! I love those chubby little wrists!
