It’s that time of year when we step back and analyze all of the ways in which we can improve ourselves, and I bet 78% of you have declared 2015 is the year that you get organized! How’s that going? Good? I am impressed! Not so good? Don’t despair. Me and my closest friends have some of the best organization cheats around. When Target asked us to share the news of their new subscription service, the ultimate organization cheat: we’re talking never running out of detergent or deodorant again, we knew it was time to spill the beans. And by “spill the beans,” I’m totally suggesting that you spill them into perfectly lined up mason jars on the counter. See? You’re more organized already!
Let’s start off with a tip from my good pal Jaime. You probably know her around these parts:
1. Start in the neatest room.
The dining room is my first stop because it’s the easiest and it makes me feel like there is an actual clean room. Then we can eat a meal in there and that makes me feel like a better mother. Double win!
2. Keep your supplies within reach.
We just installed open shelving in our kitchen with all of our most used cooking implements and tableware within reach. Having fast, convenient access to mixing bowls, measuring cups, oven mitts, and plates makes last minute meal prep and serving so much easier. And having these culinary items out in the open inspires us to cook more often. ~ Jenny from Everyday is a Holiday
3. Never run out of your basics.
Cut down on trips to the store by creating a schedule of deliveries through a service like Target Subscriptions. You can order everything from printer ink to diapers, paper towels to vitamins, lip liner to dish detergent. You set (and can change) the schedule to fit your family’s needs and your essentials will start appearing on your doorstep before you run out. No more emergency trips to the store when you realize you’re out of wipes.
