Welcome to Month by Month:

This blog is my own little version of organization central. We touch on just about every aspect of home, family, and holiday organization here. It is my hope that by blogging my experiences, I can grow as an individual and perhaps inspire others to try new things and think about everyday life a little differently. So please join us in organizing for life every month of the year!

Week One: Paperwork & Planning

Whew...I made progress in the office and created another mess...LOL. There was so much stuff accumulated in my office that I decided the only way I could manage it was to remove all of it.....sort it and put it away elsewhere, throw it away, or give it away.

The office looks WAY better even though I still have some shelves and cabinets that need cleaning. Those will wait until another week when I end up with a bonus week because of not having a certain room that is one the plan! The rest of this week will be devoted to the stacks I have moved into the livingroom...some are papers that can be sort and either filed or discarded, some are books to find new homes for and some are craft items to sort and store differently...there's probably a few other odds and ends thrown in also. There are some good will items also. Those will go to goodwill tomorrow.

So the PLAN is started and I will update weekly to let you know how I am progressing. Hope you are off to a fall cleaning start also whether it is the Holiday Grand Plan, the Houseworks Holiday Plan, or some fall plan of your own!
