Organized Chaos

To Do I can only imagine how chaotic most households are on a weekly basis.  We don’t have any children and there are times that I can’t tell what is up from down!  For those of you who have children, what are your techniques to staying organized in your day to day activities?  There are a few things that I can suggest that work for us, but I would love to hear your ideas as well.

  • First, I am definitely a Type A personality, so lists and I go hand in hand.  Not only is it easier to remember items and activities that are in need of my attention, but it’s a great feeling to mark off the list as it’s accomplished.
  • Second, making a weekly schedule of activities that need to be done (and sticking to it) seems like a fail-free way of getting done the tasks that I really don’t want to do, but in return, having time for the fun activities as well.

I remember growing up; my brother and I had chores to do every week.  How is it in your household?  Does everyone have their own list of chores?  Are they held accountable?  Just as with any sort of partnership, when everyone chips in, the list gets done that much quicker!

What favorite ways do you stay on top of your household chaos?  Being a person who enjoys structure and clever ideas, I’m always looking for new ideas to help me stay organized.  I want to hear yours!
