Project Organize My Life

Lately I have been feeling overwhelmed by the lack of organization in my life. When my house and stuff feel cluttered or things aren't nicely organized I feel like it seeps into every aspect of my life and I can't think clearly. Am I alone in this? Or did that make me sound a little OCD?

I want to organize my entire life. I want a plan and system for everything so that I can actually live my life. That might sound a little strange but when things are unorganized my whole life feels like a wreck. yeah, I know I can't be 100% organized all the time but it's worth a try.

Here is a list of the things I am going to do for Project Organize My Life

- Organize all of my pictures chronologically
- Get my scrapbooks up to date
- Update "in case I die" file, this includes my will, power of attorney, and all the information Travis would need if I were to die unexpectedly
- Meal plans
- Have date nights planned
- Have an emergency plan
- Budget
- Set up a weekly, monthly, yearly cleaning schedule
- Organize my tax stuff
- De-junk, sell, donate or throw away all the stuff I don't use around my house
- Start a "craft idea" book
- Set up a chore plan for Brody
- Organize Brody's toys
- De-clutter my computer files
- Cleanup Brody's important documents book
- Clean out my closet
- Update my address book
- Organize my email addresses
- Make a calendar for birthdays and important dates

I think that's a pretty good list for me to get started on, don't you think?

The first thing I did to start my path to organization is make this weekly to do list printable.  

If you have any tips let me know in the comments. 
What part of your life needs the most organization?


  1. This list looks almost exactly like MY dream to do list! Why is it SO hard for us to make these happy chores (except for the will) easier in our lives?

  2. Such a good idea! I needed this!

  3. I love the organized life list. What is it about spring that makes us want to organize and clean too?

    I'm getting better kid-wise with organization, I just keep wanting to throw away all the toys:) The biggest thing for me is to have an organized kitchen/pantry/meal plan, then it feels like the rest of my life is going to be ok.


  4. I like your list, you might like to have a look at another blog that has a really good list like this

    She starts by poking a bit of fun at herself but then starts a seris called "project orgainise my entire life" just thought it might have some ideas for you.
