Organization overload

31-day home organization challenge | The Sensible Home

Happy new year! I’m so ready to get 2015 rolling. This year, house projects and organization are top on my priority list. I love the idea of organization challenges, but many of the ones I’ve seen include areas that don’t apply to me or aren’t concern areas in my house. I don’t have junk drawers; but I have plenty of other problem children. 31 of them, in fact. So, I decided to create my own organization challenge (see list below). I scheduled bigger projects for weekends and smaller tasks for weekdays, since I only have evenings to work on those days. It’s an ambitious list, but my goal is just to get started — make some sort of step inward — on each of these by the end of the month.

Today: I’m tackling the linen closet. We’re blessed with great storage in our master bathroom, but despite my initial efforts to declutter it, we’ve taken to literally throwing stuff in there. And now you can’t find anything when you need it. I’ll be updating here as we go!
