A few years ago I decided that my life and home needed a complete organization overhaul. I had no idea where to start. I headed to the library and began reading book after book to find some insight. While the books offered some great ideas, their suggestions seemed very complicated and not much fun. I tend to lose interest if things are complicated or I can’t find the fun in them. I blame Mary Poppins, she taught me at an early age:
and snap I came up with an easy and fun way to get organized. After three years of following the Organization Challenge I’m still having fun and my life has never been more organized.
The Organization Challenge takes about 28 days and once you complete it, it will make staying organized throughout the year a breeze. I’ve also included an Organization Challenge for the kids, it’s never to early to teach them how to be organized. This challenge isn’t so much about how to organize it’s more about changing the way that you tackle it. So if you are looking for a quick fix to your organization woes, this challenge isn’t for you. The great thing about this challenge is that you can start it at any time, you don’t have to wait until the first of the year, just jump in and get started. I take the Challenge every year just as a refresher and to make tweeks where I need them.
Are you ready to take the 28-day challenge? Take it one day at a time! Slow and steady wins the race!

I will have to jump on board with this, doing the same thing in my home, we are having a complete overhaul. It is surprising though for me the things that I have grown attached to and dealing with that has become a challenge, I have had to be really focused and agree slow and steady.
