Get Organized Month. Yep, it’s a thing! Every January, Professional Organizers in NAPO help to bring time management, organization, storage solutions and productivity into their lives. Local chapters sponsor events in their areas (like this event that my chapter, the New England chapter, is having), and organizers across the interwebs are helping to bring tips, tricks, lessons and all sorts of guidance to help kick-start the New Year in the best way to set your year off on the best path!
Well, count on Clever Girl to make sure to get you on board! I’ve got a ton of posts in January (trying for every single weekday, so we can do all this and get great momentum together) and some challenges, too (of course!).
Each week, I’ll bring tips on organizing Your Home, Your Office, Your Life, and Manage Your Time.
Remember our 14 in ’14 challenge last year, where we decluttered 14 items every week in January? Well, this year, we’re going BIGGER:
15 items, every week, for 15 weeks. That’s right… we’ll start in January and wrap up in April. This year, instead of you finding items on your own, I’m going to give you a category to review. Every Friday, I’ll give you a category, and you’ve got the weekend ahead to try to tackle it (or, by the following Friday, if you need longer, of course! It’ll be like a scavenger hunt! And you’re encouraged to share pictures on my Facebook page and share your results, and encourage the rest of Clever Girl Nation.
So, when do we start all this awesomeness?
Well, today’s New Years Day, so, today, we’re just going to think about this a bit. Wrap our heads around what the 30 days in the month after today will bring.
Tomorrow, our first Friday of the challenge, we’ll launch the 15 in 15 in ’15.
Then, Monday, we’ll tackle our Life Organizing topic: New Years Resolutions. You may remember from last year that, for me, habit changes and fresh starts always have better meaning to me to start on a Monday, so that’s when we’ll talk about resolutions this month.
There’s going to be a lot to do, a lot to think about, and we’ll have some fun along the way… I promise!
So, enjoy the day, and see you back here tomorrow for our first challenge, and start thinking about all the spaces you hope we tackle this month!
