At the start of a new year, we give ourselves so many resolutions, be it eat healthier, start reading more or pick up a new hobby. This year, why not give a hand at something where you will see real results every week?
Organising, some loath it, some love it. But either way we all agree that this needs to be done! Starting from this week I’ll embark on a 52 week organising challenge to clean and organise my entire home! In this article I’ll list out all the weekly tasks and link them to a new article every week, once I’ve finished the challenge for that week myself.
What are we organising?
Absolutely everything! Starting from tidying your kitchen drawers to all the way to cleaning out your mailbox.
When should I start the organising challenge?
Although it spans 1 year, it doesn’t mean you’ll need to start in January. Feel free to start organising whenever it suits you best.
Can I organise my home faster?
You could, but I would advise against it. If you take on too much in the beginning, it’s much easier to give up earlier. But if you break down a big task, such as a whole house clean up, it’s much more manageable.
Although, if you do know in advance that you will not have any time for next week’s organising challenge, it may be a good idea to do some of it already this week.
What if I don’t have all the rooms listed under the challenge?
This is a super comprehensive organising list. Admittedly, even I can’t fully do all the tasks listed on the sheet. Feel free to tweak it as you see fit, replacing some organising tasks with others not on the list.
