Hi everyone,

Happy New Year!!! My first post of 2016! How was the Christmas break for you all?

2016 already! Well I’m happy to see the back of 2015 really. It was certainly a challenging year. I’m really hoping that 2016 is a good one!

At this time of year, I love planning out organising projects in my home that I’d like to tackle. Last week, I looked back over what I managed to do last year. You can read that post here. Today I’m thinking about what I’d like to do and what I need to do this year!

I’ve created a cute little checklist to help me write down my to-do’s. It’s a PDF so I can write onto it from my computer and delete/ change things as I need. Or I might just print it off.  This checklist** will be available for you guys on Thursday but for now here’s a sneak peak at how I’m using mine!

You can see here I’ve got started with my list and during 2016, I’d love to try get all these areas organised:

  • Repaint apartment
  • Organise upper wardrobe shelves
  • Declutter and redesign Office space – this will be a biggy!
  • Organise the spice/ herb Kitchen cabinets
  • Re-Organise the hot press – it’s tiny – I want to plan the space better here!

Overall the apartment looks fine but I’d love to update the decor and sort out a few rouge pockets of disorganisation that I’ve spotted the last few weeks. As I’m renting, some of these projects are landlord dependent – much to my constant dismay. How I wish I owned my own home.  I just got word that they might be willing to re-paint it for me and are open to me adding colour (but I’ll have to do that myself and change it back if I ever leave). So that’s good news! I also got the apartment unfurnished when we first moved in so that gives me a lot more freedom and I’ll certainly give it my best shot to change it around and update it a bit.

What would you like to get done in your home this year? Whether its decluttering, interior design, DIY work…by writing it down it gets it out of your head and you can see clearly what needs to be done rather than just thinking about it. Watch out for my checklist on Thursday and use it write your plans down!

  1. Hi sarah
    I loved your interview yesterday on today fm. I’ve taken a career break from the corporate world to focus on my kids and our family home.
    As a result I’ve a long list of jobs I had intended completing in the house but I’m not getting any done! After the school run, a tidy up and some cooking its practically time for collecting the kids I’m finding it impossible to manage my time. Also the kids have decided to move bedrooms which has thrown the house into turmoil and mess. I’m not doing well at staying on top of the housework at all. Would love some tips!

    We are hoping to get a small extension in May and I really need to do major decluttering before then.

    Thanks in advance
    Lyn

      Hi Lyn! Glad you enjoyed the interview. Before you tackle the “intended jobs”, I’d list the jobs you know you have to do every day. Like a school timetable – Monday to Sunday – block those jobs off throughout your week & study the time that remains. It’s within these remaining blocks of time (I know they’re few but they are there!) that you get the “intended jobs” done. Be realistic with how long tasks take. Double your estimate! If you’d like a hand decluttering, task management, creating checklists etc, we’d be happy to help or you can subscribe for blog posts & some free checklists! Let us know how you get on! 🙂
