I love checklists. There are few things that provide the same sense of satisfaction that checking items off of a checklist do. It is exhilarating and motivating and helps me keep my life, my work, my kids, my home, etc. in order.
I decided to do a little research on checklists and see just what resources are available. Here is what I found:
Real Simple has a very comprehensive collection of checklists on their website. If you are a checklist junkie like me, you MUST check out this Link! They also had The Best Free Apps to Simplify Your Life…can’t go wrong with simplifying things!
I found a list of 6 Fantastic To-Do Apps for Getting Organized on Mashable. I can’t wait to try some of these apps out in addition to the ones I already use. One of my favorites is the Cozi Family Organizer. I love it! My whole family can use it and sign in with their own individual email addresses but the same shared family password. It will definitely come in handy as the kids get older and have their own calendar schedules happening. Will keep me sane and in the know! 🙂
I came across a fellow blogger (and also a mother of 4 like me!) and she posted 100+ Ideas to Help Organize Your Home and Your Life. Amazing list, check it out!! I also subscribed to her blog while I was there…just saying! 🙂
Another great blog post I stumbled upon was Zone Defense: A Game Plan to Organize Your Home. Worth checking out!
A good website to browse is Organized Home. They have cleaning challenges, tips on how to cut clutter and get organized, recipes, ideas for household notebooks and much more!
So now that you are on top of things and getting organized, how about the kiddos? Here are some great resources to start early with your kids and keep them organized as well. That will not only make life run a little more smoothly for you, but will help your child as they grow as well.
The Parenting website has a good (short and sweet) article called Keeping Kids Organized that provides some helpful tips. A teacher for a specific school created a website for her students and their parents, but it has some great tips that anybody can use. See her version of 10 Ways to Keep Your Children Organized.
Well looking at all of these checklists and organizing sites has my heart racing with excitement! Time to satisfy my addiction and put together a checklist or two!
Until next time…make today amazing! 🙂
