If you've followed this blog with any frequency at all, you've probably guessed that I'm not much for organization. That's not to say I don't want to be organized because I do. I'm just not very ... organized about being organized. Of course I try. For instance, I make a list before I go to the store. It's usually on a scrap of paper that I found and more than once I've lost the list on the way to the store. I organize drawers and cabinets, only to have them become a mess once again. I organize my schedule, but then lose my calendar. Or forget to look at my calendar. In June, during VBS, things were so hectic and there were so many details to put together, I did a whole spreadsheet with what items needed to be done, when they needed to be done and who was supposed to do them. But then I never had time to look at my spreadsheet again until VBS was over.
So I decided to do a series of posts about organization. Each post will cover a different are of life that needs to be organized, and I will be asking you to give tips and ideas on that area that's helped you.
The first post is in the area of household chores. Do your kids do any? Do each of your kids have assigned chores, or do you just assign a job as it comes up? Do you simply check as needed, or is there a checklist you fill out to make sure things get done every day? What about if it's just you and hubby? Any division of household labor there? How do you keep this area of your life organized?
Even if your children are grown, feel free to share what you did when they were at home. Or what your mother did about chores when you were growing up. Or just what you imagine would be the perfect way to handle this, even if you don't have kids and never want any. Any and all suggestions are welcomed. And maybe we can all help each other to get a little better organization in our lives.
