I have a love/hate relationship with organizing. I love the idea and even the act of getting organized when I really get going on a closet or a kitchen drawer. I love even more “being” organized when it’s all done.
There’s just one problem, I need help organizing! Am I all alone here?
If you’re like me, getting my home organized is on the priority list but it requires so much brain power to figure out how to actually get it done! And so my personal philosophy is to use my strengths when I have them and when I don’t… use others’ strengths!
And there are some amazing bloggers out there who have created FREE resources to help us get and stay more organized in every single area of our life and home. And I’ve shared them here in this post! Everything from cleaning your home, tracking your finances, staying on track with your fitness goals, and planning your meals.
This post is just one post in a series – Spring Clean Your Life in a Week. And today we’re focused on Spring Cleaning our organizational routines. Out with what’s NOT working and it with some fresh new inspiration!

Printables to Organize Your Time
Find Out Where Your Time is Going!
I may not be a guru in home organization, but I’m obsessed with organizing and tracking my time! I used to struggle in the area of time management until I learned the truth that if we don’t tell our time where to go… it goes wherever it wants!
But before we can ever manage our time, we must first understand our time habits which aren’t always easy to spot. We always tell ourselves we’re doing “important” things so we don’t always question our super smart selves.
Until you conduct a very simple time audit! Then you’ll be able to see exactly where your time is going and exactly what adjustments you need to make. Maybe you work too much and need to play with the kids more or maybe you spend too much time on Facebook. I won’t tell anyone!
Ready to find out where you’re spending your time?
