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!

Keeping It REAL

Yeah...I know it's not winter yet...but I like the picture!. As we move into the holiday plan time of the year...the hustle and bustle of "get it all done". I just wanted to post a reminder...to Keep it Real! We can't do it all and shouldn't be expected to. Oh don't get me wrong I want to get as much organized as possible and I am determined to make gains in this house of mine...I feel like I have already but the direction I want to keep moving is forward.

But weekly lists should be manageable...one reason I sometimes fall off of long term plans is because I am unrealistic about what I can accomplish in one week...I know it is about moving forward but that long long list is pretty intimidating...so this year..instead of a long list...it is going to be 30 minutes a day to work on the room or focus area of the week. That's it...so if I do the 30 minutes but everything doesn't get marked off...so be it...I am still a SUCCESS!!!

So words of caution... KEEP IT REAL....!!!
