31 Days to an Organized Home

For a few years now I've watched bloggers participate in the 31 Day Challenge. I'm always up for a good challenge, but haven't really had the time, energy, or conviction to participate myself.

The last month or so I've been thinking about my love for organizing and how I want to make that a bigger part of my life, both personally and professionally. So this year I decided to give the 31 Day Challenge a try with 31 Days to an Organized Home... mainly mine. Ha! Here's my reasoning (broken down into a list, naturally):

1) Practice writing and posting regularly
2) Get myself organized before the holidays (Christmas is just around the corner!)
3) Become more knowledgeable and expertly in the topic of home organization and organization in general
4) Personal growth!

Now that I've totally geeked out here's my plan of action.

There are five weeks in October (two being five days), I'm breaking those down into larger categories:
Week 1: Closet
Week 2: Laundry room
Week 3: Kitchen
Week 4: Living Areas
Week 5: Life

I'll link my posts back to this post over the month.

Wish me luck!

Day1: Closet Overview... or how I get dressed in the morning... or in which I show you my un-staged messy cloest
Day 2: Out in the Open ... or in which I spent about 15 minutes straightening up
