Get Organized in May

I'm back with a new task list for the month of May.  Once again, I have to thank Julie at The Hyper House for introducing me to these monthly organizational checklists available from Get Organized Now.  I might have been a little ambitious in my first month of using the checklist.  I highlighted 8 tasks I wanted to get done and was only able to accomplish 5 of them.  For May, I am going to carry over my unfinished April tasks as well as choose 4 new tasks from the May checklist.  Here's what I have on my plate for this month:

April 21 - Wash windows inside and out.

April 22 - Swap out winter decor for spring decor.

April 26 - Review your insurance policies to be sure that you have the right coverage for all your insurance needs.

May 6 - Label, label, label!  Clear plastic containers are great for storage, but even they are limited in affording us a quick view of the contents.

May 8 - Shoe Parking!  Many families take shoes off at the door to avoid tracking outside dirt into the house and onto carpets.  A bench with a handy shoe rack makes it easy for family and guests to stop and remove shoes before going further into the house.

May 17 -  Open that mail right over the recycle bin.  Handling mail sometimes leads to stacks here and stacks there.  So when you bring it into the house, sort it immediately.  Shred anything that has personal information on it and recycle the rest.  Keep any bills or important mail in a separate file.

May 24 - Organizing the car is something we let slide while we take care of our house and families.  Containerize loose items so things don't fall out when you open the door.  

That's a lot of tasks for May, but I am up for the challenge.  Wish me luck and share your success stories with me!


  1. Yay, I'm glad you like them! Good luck this month.

  2. Oh, our car is so bad! It explodes about every two weeks or so and then we have to do an overhaul. I used to be so good about mail but since moving I haven't set up a new system for handling it yet. Thanks so much for posting a link!!


I'd love to hear from you!
